WWLD (What Would Lincoln Do)?

RECEIVED Mon., April 11, 2005

To the editor,
    I'm getting a little more than irritated with the radical Republicans taking millions of dollars from their corporate cohorts and fundamentalist Christians and using their power to try and silence the minority party altogether. They have proven that they have no ethics when it comes to their scheming and will stop at nothing to gain complete control and void out the system of checks and balances placed by our founding fathers. You won't see this news on Fox, but if the GOP gets their way say goodbye to opposing views altogether. The Republican Party is trying to create a one-party system based on the same form of government used by the Chin Dynasty in China known as legalism. That is the assumption that everyone is bad and laws must be set in place to regulate our morals. (Ironically their actions in themselves are as immoral as it gets. Tom DeLay case in point.) This is a complete slap in the face not only to Democrats, but to old-school Republicans. Lincoln must be rolling over in his grave!
