Republican extremists dangerous to country

March 31, 2014 | 12:09 am

The present Republican Party is a disgrace and a very real danger to our nation and the welfare of its citizens. Junkyard dogs show more integrity and decorum than some Republican members of Congress and most of their national leaders.

Their rhetoric comes very close to sedition, (suggesting violent acts against a duly elected government and its officials).

The Republican Party has been taken over by the extreme right and fundamentalist wing. To a fundamentalist, only white men are qualified to be president. If any Republican woman thinks this group would let her be president, think again. This group has been against social programs designed to lighten the load that the unfortunate live under.

To help the middle class and underprivileged is not communism or socialism but rather America at its best.
