In response to Ed Waters Jr.’s letter on Oct. 25, I must say he is absolutely right.
The Democratic Party has become the party of hate. What we hate: bigotry, racism, injustice, stupidity, incompetence, corruption, cronyism. Immorality, greed, religious intolerance, senseless gun violence, war, poverty, pollution, the destruction of our planet’s resources. Income inequality, denying the rights of women to control their own bodies, infringement of LGBT rights, foreign interference with our political process, suppression of voters’ rights, citizens not affording health care and pharmaceuticals. Attacks on immigrants, people of different colors and races, corporate rights over human rights, the destruction of our Democratic principles and the abandonment of our U.S. Constitution.
Yes, these are just a few of the things we hate. And let me assure you we will do everything in our power to make sure that “Government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the Earth” (Republican President Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg, Nov. 19, 1863).
