Clouding the Issue
I read a letter to the editor recently by someone who proclaimed that he was no longer a Republican, because of what Rush Limbaugh had said about Sandra Fluke. That letter said volumes about what is going on today in politics.
First of all, if he reads Dusty Rhoades, he isn’t much of a Republican. Most of us would rather have a toothache. In this case, Dusty would have been right. Anyone who thinks as this man does is a RINO (Republican In Name Only). There is no loss to the party. Most importantly, it shows how a non-issue issue can be so prevalent in some people’s minds.
It clouds the message. The issue is that the government shouldn’t be involved in people’s private life choices. If someone wants to spend $3,000 a year on their contraception, they can certainly do so. If they want to use our tax dollars for that purpose, I have a problem.
This election should be about how we can get our country back on track, without being sidetracked. We need to find a way to have fewer people trying to find ways to spend tax dollars and more people working to provide them.
For those in Rio Linda, as Rush would say, that means fewer government employees and unions, and more support for private business.
