To the editor:

The Republican Party –  the party of the far right, the religious party, party of the big lie, party of no taxes.

My knowledge goes back to the 1920s. We lived 20 miles from the nearest town. My father was employed all through the Depression, employed by an oil company. He subscribed to a Tulsa, Okla., newspaper, delivered to the home six days a week, 60 miles from Tulsa. Until I was 12, I lived in Tulsa, going to school and finding ways to make money, making $10 a month, which was good pay in those days. I make the above statements for background purposes.

At the beginning of the Depression, Hoover was president. His action at the time was do nothing, the same as the recent far right president at the beginning of our present recession, caused by them.

A far-right president started our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was their desire to bring democracy to the area. I cannot believe anyone with any knowledge of the area could believe such was possible.

The Bible refers to being “my brother’s keeper.” The religious party will not pass or subscribe to a law authorizing Social Security or any other law to help those of need, such as support a law to help the unemployed.

The big lie is represented in nearly all its actions, such as trying to make people believe President Bush’s actions had nothing to do with our present financial troubles or the big oil fiasco now in the Gulf.

I do not know if the far right are aware of one of the biggest facts facing us, but I became aware early as a counterintelligence agent that democracy is very unstable. Some who call themselves Democrats and the far right, in their desire to win, have ceased to work with other parties. If they do not work together, that will be the end of democracy.
