Your daily Letters to the Editor — March 2, 2013
Many things threaten our country. The most dangerous will be the cosmetic change of the Republican Party. House Speaker John Boehner said, “we learned our lesson” when, after being taken to the woodshed a few years ago, the party won back a majority at some levels of government.
But it had not changed. Republicans have proven this over and over, crushing women’s rights, rigging votes through redistricting, trying all possible ways to fix elections, wanting to change the electoral college process.
They have obstructed all attempts to deal with equality; none stood when the president mentioned better education for all kids during the State of the Union.
They are trying all shenanigans possible, even changing their minds now on immigration, something they sternly opposed until after the November elections.
Beware, America, they are still the party of power and greed, pushing a nationwide power grab, arrogantly out of touch with reality and voters. True Americans can restore democracy and end the Republican dictatorship; just don’t fall for the phony change gimmick.
Obama’s re-election is part of God’s plan
I’ll admit to being a little confused by all the letters since November about how God will punish America for re-electing President Obama. These folks can take comfort in the Bible: Paul says clearly in Romans that those in authority are there because God wants them there. God has a plan for America, even if we can’t see it — or don’t want to.
