letter to the editor:

GOP should follow people’s will

Thanks to the Sun for the letter “Are Republicans stuck in a rut?” As the writer points out, you can’t expect to be elected without contributing to bettering the country. If the GOP were smart, it would quit being against things the majority of voters want.

How can anyone be against affordable health care for all? How can any American be against immigration when most of us have, or have family who have, immigrated to this country? How can anyone be against equal rights for all? These are the things people will be voting for, and the GOP needs to favor them, too, if they expect to win elections.

If the GOP truly wants to take over 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the party must embrace the positions that the majority of the voters favor and then sell the voters on being the party that will best be able to bring those popular policies into reality. Considering the run of bad luck the White House is having with executing policy, that might not be such a tough sell.
