Letter: Some of us think for ourselves
Re “Some questions for the GOP” (Monitor letter, Jan. 9):
While I am not one of those hateful GOPers, I thought it important to inform Steve Metzger that there are others out here in the hinterlands who vote our own minds. Some of us don’t believe in many of the things the “horrible” GOP touts but similarly don’t believe the “dependency-loving” Democrats do any better. He writes about things former presidents fought for, as if that somehow made them correct. Many of us non-Republicans fought against Medicare and Medicaid and would have fought Social Security too, if we’d been of voting age when FDR foisted that Ponzi Scheme on the nation many years ago.
Is Metzger suggesting that we must all join him to only support what he does? Is that a demand or an invitation? Some of us actively support universal laws that reward survival of the fittest among all species. Condemning others who don’t believe as Metzger, does not make him correct, or those others, incorrect, but only of a different mind.
