Too early to be happy
So Mr. Schoff and Mr. Keen are ecstatic with the election results. The country is moving in another direction. I am tired of hearing that Republicans, conservatives and TEA Party are racists. We listen to all candidates and make choices. We are never happier than when as many people as possible are working; it means our taxes will be less. It is the Democrats who are still in the 1960s seeing racism everywhere. The fact that they bring it up shows they are themselves racists. People who don’t work and get out in the workplace don’t understand that if they only see their own race, they feel picked upon. Most working people see all kinds of races.
As to the Republican convention being mostly whites, the mainsteam media cut away when minorities were speaking and didn’t show all the delegates. Watch Fox news for a week and see what you are missing. So racists are rampant in Springville. Most people don’t announce their politics. Can you tell if someone is racist by looking at them? The checker who takes your money? The office help at your doctor’s? Your mechanic or barber?
As to gays, my family has one and we love him as much as anyone else. I don’t care who anyone sleeps with and I don’t know many who do. Just don’t announce it. As a woman who raised two taxpaying daughters after a divorce, I never needed Women’s Lib. I bought my own protection when I needed it. Responsibility is all we need.
Let’s see if both writers will be so happy when their taxes go up next year. I happen to believe Romney-Ryan would have had a better plan to get the country working. ObamaCare will be a disaster, raising everyone’s taxes to pay for it. You don’t think only the rich will be hit, do you? Get rid of your jealousy of those who have more than you do. When many businesses move to Texas for lower taxes and there aren’t jobs, who will you blame? Don’t lay that on Republicans, we opposed Prop 30.
So gloat and live in your narrow world, those of us who aren’t liberal know what is real, and your world is skewed. Just as it was in the 1990s — when you thought things were hunky-dory because Clinton was at the helm. Who didn’t take Bin Laden when he could? There wouldn’t have been 9/11. Dodd-Frank caused the mortgage meltdown. Live in your little euphoric world. Write in the next few months when reality hits, the Christmas bills, about $200 more taken in taxes, and the disaster of FEMA helping Hurricane Sandy victims.
