Letter to an Editor - Are you Honest or Crook?

Dear Pat,

I agree wholeheartedly that government can't run squat. Where I disagree is in your seeming confusion about the definition of CONSERVATIVE. So what really is the definition?

For six generations my family has identified Conservatives and Republicans as synonymous. Now, six years after putting Conservatives (Republicans) into complete control (President, Senate, House, and 7 of 9 Supremes), where are we? We have seen four raises in the debt ceiling, from $4.5 trillion to $8.7 trillion. We now have a global trade deficit that defies mathematics, common sense, and even liberal comprehension. We have seen an insane push by Bush to expand this deficit to the include the globe. We have heard of plans to merge Mexico, the US, and Canada under the North American Union and build a superhighway for China and Wal-Mart's convenience. We have witnessed a was on terror overseas and a wide-open welcome mat at our borders, both north and south.

Is there anyone in rural America naive enough to believe that "Conservative" political pressure from Bush and company didn't influence our judicial system in Pickett v. IBP and the Checkoff decisions?

Missing $100 bills measured by the ton or by the plane-load and no-bid contracts amounting to nearly $260 billion don't seem "Conservative" to me.

In your Jan. 26 editorial you talked about a doctrine that could possibly shut down - or "muzzle" - "Conservative" talk shows. But I would argue that under Jewish (Abramoff) control, our Senators, life Burns and Brownback, are not muzzled but BOUGHT!

Westerners love to hate environmentalists, yet nothing changed in six long years of "Conservative" control. And do you recall, Pat, where the enviro-wackos got their laws they use to beat us? Yes, my Kansas Senator Bob DOle pushed the Nixon legacy through Senate and Congress: the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and the EPA.

I've seen the light, and I hope you do too. It's not Democrat either! We should change our political definitions to a simple Honest or Crook with a free pass direct to jail for ANY violation.

Thanks you all your effort to promote honesty, common sense, and our nation.
