Dear Editor: In his recent letter to the editor, Mr. Osoba barks up the wrong tree and inadvertently provides strong reasoning for Republicans to join Loudoun Conservatives for Democrats – we aren’t giving up the the conservative political principles he praises nor embracing the liberal principles he criticizes!
The fateful blunder, the rapier in the heart of his attempt to persuade, however, is his failure to address why conservatives should not vote with the Democrats, and hasten the GOP’s demise, succumbing as it must to its ruinous and damning political cancer: fear mongering, narcissism, flagrant dishonesty, ridiculousness, vanity, dishonor, hateful words meant to harm, bigotry, arrogance, ignorance, disrespect, violence, religious freedom abuse, distrust of “the other”, manipulation, and the continuous thrashing of indispensable democratic institutions such as a free press and compromise.
Parenthetically, regarding the complaint of a “liberal media bias”, I’d like to suggest a responsible solution: buy two papers of opposite political stripes, read them both, and form your own opinion.
This election cycle all Loudoun Republicans should thoughtfully consider voting for Democrats, which party, despite having different answers to our national problems, valiantly refuses to be a national problem, as the GOP now sadly is.
