Here is a letter I submitted to the local newspaper. It appeared in yesterdays paper. Seemed a fitting start.
Republicans of the greater York area take heart. Conservatism did not lose this election…..the current Republican Party did. Starting Nov. 5th the rebuilding of the Republican Party begins. We must once again fill our ranks with true (emphasis on true) conservatives. And for the 20% of conservatives that voted for Mr. Obama….you can stay on that side of the aisle we don’t need you, thank you. You are the ones who pushed McCain as our candidate. John McCain the “Maverick” who spent his career alienating the conservative base and than expecting them to miraculously back him whole-heartedly in an election. McCain was not my man in the primaries. McCain became my guy when he chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. I for one intend to promote this return to conservatism within our party and you can too. Get the word out. Talk to people. Let them know what’s happening as Pres. Obama and the do nothing Democratic Congress try and shove their liberal agenda down everyone’s throat. Speak up when he raises the capital gains tax to 28%, reinstitutes the estate tax, increases taxes across the board (by the way……letting the Bush tax cuts expire in 2010 is a tax increase, trust me you’ll see it on your tax return), pushes infanticide (for those of you who do not know, this is when a baby survives an attempted abortion, is outside the womb breathing and is left to die), passes universal health care (which will require health rationing due to the stress on the health care system inflicted by 60 million additional patients including 10 million illegal aliens. Health rationing is when a board reviews your case to determine if you are going to receive treatment), just to name a few. I am sorry Mr. McCain but I for one will not unify with the Democratic Party and a President pushing the above agenda. These are not conservative viewpoints. I urge you all to stand behind true young conservatives within our party. Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal in Louisiana, Tim Pawlenty in Minnesota and Charlie Crist in Florida. These people can lead us and this country back to where it needs to be. Keep up the good fight and God Bless us all.
