Don't blame the "right"
To the Editor:
Letters to the editor in the Oct. 24 Citizen are blaming the “far right” for just about everything that is wrong in our government today. I’m a conservative person and probably about as “far right” in ideology as one can get. I believe in personal responsibility, small government, limited regulatory requirements, personal freedom, and most of all GOD. Most people on the “right” probably share my views.
I’m not opposed to women’s rights. There should be no gender restrictions on “rights.” I am opposed to abortion because I believe the “person” being aborted has “rights.” I’m not opposed to helping those in need. I am opposed to making those in need dependent upon the government. The more dependent people there are the larger the government must become to service them. I am opposed to excessive regulatory requirements that only serve to tie the hands of free enterprise thereby crippling our economy.
The Constitution guarantees us the right to pursue happiness which cannot be accomplished if our personal freedoms are being taken away. And, most of all I believe that this great nation became a great nation because it was established as a “Christian Nation” by God Himself for the good of mankind throughout the world. I do not believe the “far right” can be blamed for the mess that is our government.
