I accept their right to be published, but I get so tired of President Barack Obama hatersí letters.
All the time they are finding something new as an excuse to spew their hatred. The latest being the immigration problem at the border.
I quote a recent letter, ďObamaís dictatorship is becoming ever more secure as we become more overrun with the illegal immigrants he is counting on to vote for the far left Democrats, which they are now doing fraudulently.
His intent is to cause the collapse of our constitutional republic so he can install a liberal/fascist regime.Ē Almost as good as the ďbirtherĒ nonsense.
The law that admits (not permanently but only until they get a hearing) these ďillegalsĒ is not Obamaís law, rather a prior presidentís Ė one of your conservative heroes (George W. Bush).
Secondly, another law (again, not Obamaís) prohibits the National Guard from doing anything other than guiding the immigrants to the Border Patrol agents.
I suppose Obama could give an executive order overriding those laws, but somehow I believe that would be the basis for another rant.
Donít get me wrong Ė the border issue is a big problem. But youíre not helping.
Iím sure you will continue to rail on, but what you donít seem to realize is that you and your partyís ranting Ė while never offering any real solutions Ė does more harm to your election chances.
Until you offer real problem-solving alternatives, it wonít be the illegal immigrantís votes (How many do you really believe vote?) but rather mainstream Americans (including naturalized citizens) that will keep your party out of national office.
