Dan Warner’s letter to the editor, “Principled Republicans fading,” is just the same old gripes from the left. Most liberals like the idea of a king in the White House. They love to spend dollars they don’t have and think everybody in this country is entitled to a free ride.
I certainly agree that principled Republicans are fading, but what happened to the Democrats — a party with no principles, a president who can’t get out of his own way, a total collapse of an administration and a country so far in debt it will never recover without strong leaders who say no?
Let me remind Warner to look around and see who is leading the states into trouble, and look at Detroit, a city that has been run by Democrats since the mid ’50s.
Mr. Warner, don’t count your chickens before they hatch in the 2016 election, as your party has put Queen Hillary Clinton as the frontrunner. If we get her for four years, you will see a total collapse of a country.
There is no fast fix to this country’s problems, but I can tell you this: Only a handful of politicians in office understand the problems; most, like John McCain and Harry Reid, have no idea what’s going on.
It’s not the parties; it’s the people who run the parties.
