Why I’m Republican
I think all the negative letters in response to Ashton Miller’s letter should give a pretty good clue as to what is wrong with our society today. The perceived outrageous attitude someone must have to suggest people actually pay for their own health insurance; next he’ll be advocating they pay for their own food, and heaven forbid, even paying to raise their children themselves.
It seems Democrats have spent many years creating a large portion of our society totally dependent on the forced charity of taxpayers with the only goal in mind of creating a class willing to vote for Democrats to keep that charity care coming, the majority of that class never having paid into the system, generations being trained only to milk the system with no ambition to gain anything on their own.
Why would anyone wonder why we have so much crime and violence these days when it’s pretty obvious that we have created such a large portion of our population that has never earned anything so has no respect for the hard work of others and their property? No respect for themselves or anyone else and hate those that have the things they want and feel that it is their right to take what they want by any means necessary. Of course they also hate the police for trying to stop them from exercising their “right” to steal or kill.
Recently an acquaintance of mine was chastising me for being a Republican, saying that Republicans just didn’t care about people’s needs the way the Democrats do because Democrats spend lots of government money taking care of the poor. I asked her where she thought the government got all that money. The lady looked at me aghast and replied, “why, the government prints the money, don’t you know anything!”
For all those reasons, I’m proud to say that I am not a Democrat. JOHN A. YATES
