Letter Of The Day - "Enough Is Enough"

Today's letter of the day by Don Brown of Sacramento was published by the Sacramento Bee. He is sick and tired of the Republicans that "govern" this country and has personal reasons for writing this letter:

In the July 18 article "Bush affirms stem cell veto plan" Sen. Rick Santorum is quoted as saying, "I do not believe taxpayer dollars should support research that destroys human life." More Republican Party hypocrisy. I think it's despicable that he votes to use taxpayer money to research new weapons to kill innocent people around the world. That's immoral to me. That, plus lying to the American people.

As a father whose son is battling brain cancer, I find it repugnant that the religious extremists who control the Republican Party can stop further scientific research that could help fight cancer and rebuild damaged brain cells. But then again, let the voting public see how extreme the Republican Party has become. Not only will the failure of Iraq be front and center, but also political corruption, tax relief to the rich, American credibility down the drain, dishonesty and now blocking stem cell research. I am becomming more and more confident that people have finally said: Enough is enough; give us our country back.

Say "enough is enough" by contributing to Tahoe candidates here.
