Letter: Chris Stevenson, Purcellville

Editor: It was impossible for my political soul to reconcile Senator Hatch’s plea last week to reject identity politics as the “cancer on our political culture” with his support of the most tribal president that the American experiment has been forced to endure, if only for a season.

Instead of lofty writing, the best thing Sen. Hatch and, I will add here, Rep. Comstock, can do for the ancient, beloved and now fractured and beleaguered American experiment in self-government is to repent, and in Republican sackcloth and ashes reject the president as the impostor he is.

If Ms. Comstock does this quickly and emphatically, I and other conservatives like me could consider casting our vote for her in the fall. Otherwise a “Loudoun conservatives for Democrats” movement, fueled by Abraham Lincoln’s “right makes might” doctrine, will lend its hand to the only major party worthy of support.

Chris Stevenson, Purcellville
