Reader afraid of direction of country

This past election, votes were cast and pages of history were turned that forever changed the demographics of this nation. The flower power of distributing equal wealth, amnesty for all illegals, peace and love for gay marriages and legalizing pot smoking in some states ushered in the wild child of the turbulent ’60s, having reached manhood and womanhood with all their Marxist glory.

The power of the Republican Party that has lead for years was smashed and trodden under the leftist Obama juggernaut political machine. Shocked and dazed by the tactics used to subdue the RNC candidate, news hummed of how can Republicans compete in future arenas and expect to win any foreseeable political power?

The trust is they can’t and keep their same ideals. The Republicans were politically masticated by Democrats on Nov. 6.

Republicans are evaluating on how better to maintain their humanity in a country that has gone left of center. (Maybe bigger government won’t be so bad.) (Higher taxes sounds solid.) (Maybe abortion on demand isn’t as awful as once believed.) (With Obamacare, grandma is to old for that Medicare funded operation.) (Maybe gays should be allowed to marry and have equal rights as heterosexuals.) All these and more opposite views and values that make the Republican party a bulwark against far left agenda.

Republicans, having been masticated by Democrats, are being nudged by current events of the day asking whether Republicans should politically disembowel themselves of truths that are held sacred. Conservation and the country would cease to exist and go by the way to the Dodo bird.

A dictatorial power grab would soon rear its ugly head and the fruited plain that once was a Christian nation would be the den of evil inequities.

Oliver Wendel Holmes said, “my country, right or wrong,” and since our country has chosen wrongly, flaunting the principles of the founding fathers and the Constitutional, little will remain of what was once a proud and dutiful to all humanity United States of America.

God Bless America.
