Why I’m Repub­li­can

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

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
