Letter to the editor: Conservatives have worthy goals, but I have questions

Dave Bittner
Dillon

 

Let’s take a look at these conservative beliefs, according to Kim McGahey:

  • The U.S. Constitution: So what do you do with a president who tries to circumvent election laws specified in the Constitution?
  • Rule of law: So what do you do with a president who encourages riots and sedition? Will conservatives vote to impeach?
  • We the people, not we the government
  • Free market enterprise: Let’s cut out the huge subsidies to the oil industry.
  • Personal responsibility: So let’s encourage, not discourage, minority voters with barriers to voting.
  • Family: Of course.
  • Hard work: And apple pie.
  • A free and honest press: So why is there so much disinformation in the press and media from the conservative side and attacks on the press from the conservatives?
  • The content of your character, not the color of your skin: So why is the Republican Party so overwhelmingly white and European?
  • Faith in the God of our founders: What about the gods of Americans today?

McGahey, these are all worthy goals, but words of a mission statement must be lived every day.
