Our future’s best hopePublished 6:43pm Wednesday, October 3, 2012
To the Editor:
The Romney/Ryan Republican candidacy should be so thoroughly repudiated in the November election that the Republican Party would be forced to wrest control away from the far right. I hope to see the GOP reestablish itself as a viable, valuable second party rather than an obstruction in our national life.
If we follow the Romney/Ryan plan to cut safety nets from the middle class and the poor in order to further subsidize the wealthy, America will collapse, far beyond the severe recession from which we are slowly but steadily recovering under President Obama’s leadership.
“Conservatives” – a misnomer – are conserving nothing; they are destroying. For now, our best hope as individuals and a nation is Barack Obama. But he needs a Democratic House and Senate dedicated to egalitarian principles. It is up to the American voters.
