Another reply to a GOP fundraising letter

The letter was sent to me through e-mail by someone named Chris McNulty and authorized by the Republican National Committee.

This is how I responded:
I am a proud member of the Tea Party.  I want our party to embrace the overwhelming unifying force that was embodied in the awesome presence of President Abraham Lincoln, who brought two parts of the United States back together when they had been shooting at each other.

In contrast, President Barak Obama has been trying to divide my country into different factions by class, by race, and by other useless criteria.  I haven't seen the GOP, as a group, say to him in any public manner, and with any kind of effort, that he was wrong to do so.

When he gave orders for Christian members of the U.S. military to be denied access to Bibles, rosary beads, written letters from Catholic bishops, and other blatantly-unconstitutional forms of religious discrimination, you didn't tell him that he was wrong and you didn't tell Congress that he was wrong.

When he wanted to divert billions of taxpayer dollars from domestic programs to welfare for illegal aliens, you didn't say no.

When he took sides in a local murder trial against George Zimmerman, by saying "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin", you didn't tell him that the outcome of the trial was none of his business, and that as the President, he had more important things to worry about.

When the number of his impeachable offenses became larger than Nixon's and Clinton's combined, you didn't lobby the House Judiciary Committee to begin writing impeachment articles.  You didn't even publicize what those offenses were, which would have helped to organize public support for them.

But those aren't the biggest examples of a party that has given up on the idea of being loyal to the country and yet a party that opposes the policies of the Democrat Party. This is much worse.  When conservative members of the party have become the sole nominee of the party in an election, you have actually helped the Democrat candidate!

This is inexcusable.  I cannot in good conscience continue to support your party because you are no longer supporting the country.  Instead, you are supporting a President who hates the country's founding fathers and our founding ideas.

I will contribute money and, on my blogs, ideas that are designed to help individual conservative candidates.  If you want my support, support them.
