Party of discord
In response to Harry Faulkner’s “Conservative Not Racist” presentation. Being neither a pundit for, nor a patron of any political entity, I take no issue with a prudent degree of conservatism. I do have to agree with Mr. Faulkner that President Bush took his well-deserved no nonsense lumps for leading the nation into an unfunded war to eliminate weapons of mass destruction that never existed, and for allowing the gigantic financial institutions to bring this nation’s economy to the brink of collapse. I would also have to agree with Mr. Faulkner that any five year old including myself would not have to hold their breath too long before they would be able to comprehend the racial, ethnic and gender bias espoused by the present day Republican establishment. All of the phony, trumped up scandals, the nation-wide effort at voter suppression would be indicative of a political party that was at odds with itself, out of touch with reality and not in keeping with a true concept of Democracy. I can understand and appreciate Mr. Faulkner’s ire and consternation due to what his chosen party has evolved into. The incursion of the radical right wing Tea Party element has rendered the Republican Party a seething hornet’s nest of intrigue, discord and thus not overly appealing to the majority of this nation’s collective electorate. There exists an extreme possibility that in the process of the upcoming 2016 Presidential election, the Republicans may have to convert their racially biased tendencies to gender bias, and if that happens to occur all I can say to the Republicans is “good luck.”
The most egregious part of Mr. Faulkner’s letter was his contention that I referred to him as a racist. When one states something as being a fact, when they know that it is absolutely not a fact, that would constitute an instance of untruthfulness, and I think Mr. Faulkner would have to admit that I never mentioned his name in my letter.
