Where are Republicans?

To the Editor:

I grew up in a Republican family.

Were my father alive today, he would not recognize his party.

Where are the Republicans who stood for honesty, fairness and compassion for all the people of this great nation? When Mitchell McConnell, a Republican leader, promises to destroy all the efforts of President Barack Obama in his first term, and continue this effort until the president leaves office, a new precedent of ugliness has been established. When a Republican congressman says, “If they don’t work, they should not eat,” where are the Republicans who should oppose the continued takeover by the tea party group.

I believe in the two-party system of government. Today, it does not exist.
