More thoughts on the GOP 4th of July float (letter)

First, Kim McGahey claims 99 percent approved of the messages at the parade. As chair of the Summit GOP, I am sure he is quoting a scientifically objective survey source. And to him and others who thought that criticism of the signs was an attempt at censorship. No! Conservatives always think Liberals are trying to muzzle them. We are just exercising our freedom of speech to comment when the Right does something stupid. We are curious as to why, on a day when all Americans celebrate the greatness of this nation after 239 years of freedom, the local Right felt it necessary to use highly partisan messages. Then I remembered. The GOP is now represented by Donald Trump.
