To the editor:
Though the recent Republican Party defeat will once again be debated, those leading this party to extinction will go right on proclaiming the sky is falling over the usual emotional nonissues, while ignoring the real problems facing our nation.
The two-party system in America has a valuable, indeed a vital, role in providing necessary balance in politics, but having embraced localized, authoritarian philosophies without bothering to look any deeper than the pile of money and votes being delivered has warped the Republican message beyond credibility or even respectability, as in Karl Rove’s distasteful collection of huge sums of super PAC money, clearly intended to buy the election in return for gigantic favors.
The Republican spin now claims that demographics did them in, when in fact, it was their lousy message to the American people.
No, I am not a Democrat crowing over another Republican debacle. I am one of those elderly, white, angry, lifelong Republicans, fed up with the radicalized nonsense the leadership of my party continues to preach as though it was gospel.
