Dear Chairman Mehlman,
Thanks very much for the enclosed address labels. I would like very much to contribute to the Republican Party but I cannot in good conscience do so. The Republican Party as a whole no longer represents my beliefs. After the ludicrous immigration reform bill recently proposed by the Republican controlled US Senate, I feel I can no longer support the party.
If the Republicans lose control of the House and/or the Senate in November, it will be nobody’s fault other than their own, and it is simply because they have failed to act like Republicans.
I remember the contract with America in 1994. The Republicans have forgotten. I remember the Republicans’ pledge to smaller government and less government spending, yet the Republicans hand in hand with the Democrats have led us to the largest multi-trillion dollar budget in history. I know that the President and every member in congress took an oath to defend this nation and her constitution against every enemy foreign and domestic. Yet many of the Republicans including the President are content to make half hearted efforts to secure our borders and let millions of criminal invaders remain in this country with no plan for removing them or punishing employers that give them jobs, punishing developers that rent or sell them houses, punishing lenders that lend them money, and on and on and on.
Give me a Republican Party that will give me a small unobtrusive federal government that will stop telling me what to eat, what to drive, how to act, and stay out of my business and my pocket book, and I will contribute again. Give me a Republican Party that will rid our nation from this cancer of illegal immigration that thumbs its nose at our laws and sucks the life out of our welfare and healthcare systems, and I will contribute again.
To the staffer that reads this, I urge you to share this with your superiors. Be aware and be warned that the vast majority of conservatives, your political base, feels exactly the way that I do.
Thomas Hamilton MD, (former Republican, always conservative)
Feel free to use all or part of this letter and send it, if you agree, the next time you get letters begging for money from the Republicans. You can just stuff it into the postage paid return envelope they provide, or you can email it. You might want to include one of these in lieu of a check:
