To The Daily Sun,
Paula Trombi's letter of April 1 is typical of the letters that Democrats send newspapers whenever Republicans have to repair the damage done to New Hampshire's finances by Democrat poor planning, mismanagement, waste, and payoffs to political supporters.
If you believed all of Trombi's and her fellow travelers' predictions of doom and gloom, then tens of thousands of us should have died of starvation, cold, lack of medical care, accidents from bad roads and bridge failures, etc.
Letters from Trombi, et. al., are simply hysterical political propaganda intended to scare voters into increasing funding for special interests that, in return, fund Democrat politicians.
Some people really need help. We should help them and we do. But, most Americans can take care of themselves if given a decent chance.
But Democrats don't fight for things that give people a chance, they fight to take away peoples' chances to become independent and take care of themselves without help from others.
Democrats fight every attempt to provide school choice, preferring to lock children, especially poor children, in failing and dangerous schools which make it difficult to get the education and skills needed for a good start in life.
Democrats fight for minimum wage increases which make it harder for low skilled, especially young or minority, people to get the work experience needed for getting a better paying job. Democrat politicians flood the labor market with legal and illegal immigrants who depress wages and compete for the jobs Americans need to advance themselves. Democrats claim to care about workers, but they fight every effort to create a business environment that encourages investment and the economic growth that creates good jobs.
Broken families are major factors in many peoples' problems, poverty, crime, substance abuse, teen pregnancies, etc., but Democrat policies split up families and encourage activities which lead to young unwed motherhood.
After decades of Democrats' policies which consistently hurt people, causing more poverty, misery, and more lost freedom, it would be irrational to believe that Democratic intentions are to help people be successful and independent. It seems pretty clear that Democratic policies are intended to make people ignorant and poor because ignorant and poor people are a reliable Democratic voting bloc. While I am sure there are many caring Democrats, Democratic leadership and policies are only interested in increasing Democratic political power despite the harm to millions of people.
Democrats who care more about their fellow Americans than the politicians and special interests should join the TEA Party's fight to return to government that works for the people, to provide more opportunities for prosperity, happiness, and freedom to each American.
