I read J. Patrick Coolican’s column for the first time in the Sun on Nov. 16: “Steve Wynn much better suited to casinos than politics.”

I have to agree with every word he wrote about Steve Wynn.

Money can’t buy love, it can’t buy immortality, and most of all, what the Republican PACs found out the hard way, it can’t buy presidential elections.

People in business should keep their political views to themselves because it’s good for business.

They should save it for the voting booth.

Mitt Romney is proving with his big mouth what a disaster he would have been if he became president. He and the Tea Party should use more sugar and less lemon.

Good job, Mr. Coolican; I will read your column from now on. I pray that the Republican Party comes to its senses and becomes a party not only for the chosen few.

A good start would be to get rid of the Tea Party.

If this happens, I might become an independent voter.
