Letter to the Editor: Why wouldn't conservatives say no?
March 19, 2014 10:20 AM

Everett Dembosky would have us believe that divided government is a bad thing (“Just vote no to divided government,” March 7). He apparently thinks we should all think alike, and not only think alike, but think like him.

I certainly don’t think he advocates a non-divided government of all conservatives, as they would lead us in a direction he does not want to go.

Why, then, does he blame conservatives when they resist going in the direction of “progress” toward a socialist nirvana.

Conservatives do not want to go there! Of course, we say no to initiatives that lead us down that path, the wrong path.

The Founders created our system of checks and balances deliberately to prevent tyranny by a majority. We tried Democrat control of both houses in Congress from 2006 through 2010. What did it get us? A financial meltdown in 2008; a “budget,” which is still in force and which has escalated our debt from $9 trillion to $17+ trillion; failed uneconomic “green” initiatives; explosion in regulations and red tape; socialized medicine; double the number on food stamps; half the nation too poor to pay taxes (and the 1 percent that do are in flight); and we are about to lose the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency.

And this is the direction Mr. Dembosky wants to accelerate by reinstating the undivided government that got us here?
