I’m a white veteran and gun owner. I fit all the demographics of the Republican Party. I must say that, thankfully, after having completed my undergraduate studies, I became a Democrat.

The only kids I knew that were Republicans were going to school to be in business or were born wealthy. Your party is the party of greed, selfishness and ignorance. The good old boys need another vacation home in Europe while the poor and middle class work hard to simply put a roof over their heads and food on the table.

I’m from Wisconsin and am so embarrassed by the likes of Ron Johnson, Paul Ryan and that sorry Gov. Walker. Your party makes sure that the nation’s wealth remains with a handful of our nation’s citizens. Your party is dying, thank God. You have the likes of the aforementioned individuals along with Ann Coulter, Rush, Hannity and Fox News representing your party that simply make sh-t up for your ignorant followers. Hannity and Rush couldn’t make it through college. They go around talking your garbage, trying to enlighten people with your messages. It’s kind of like the blind leading the blind.

I guess my message to you primarily is: Do you think the poor should be left to the generosity of the rich? What’s wrong with socialism? The Republican Party says the Democrats are a bunch of socialists and equates them to European politicians. Our government is by no means the best – far from it. There should be a level playing field.

History has demonstrated repeatedly that governments, cultures and societies die out due to the wealth and greed of only a few. Governments are overthrown by people who are tired of a few consuming all the wealth and sitting on all the assets. This is a good country if you are lucky in life or born with a silver spoon in your mouth.

Your party is nothing less than disgusting. I pray for all of you.
