In response to the … letter of a couple days ago (“Not a GOP exception,” June 26):

How is it possible for conservatives to win any elections, what with the liberals voting twice, digging up the dead to vote, and not allowing our military people overseas to vote, and, yes, even wanting illegal aliens to vote for their agendas? Could it be that clear-thinking people still believe in the Ten Commandments, despite all attempts to hide it or rewrite it?

Listen to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or Bill O’Reilly for one segment each, and then try and tell me it’s not Mom, Apple Pie, and Patriotism.

Tony Gilchrease, our county Republican Committee chairman, follows these same principles, and I’m sure would welcome any visitors to the meetings where they would hear more of the same. Trouble is the meetings are bound to offend some of our liberal friends because the meetings always start off with the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag (and country).
