Letter To The Editor: To That Concerned Citizen...

on March 23, 2017 - 10:40am

By JAMES ROBINSON, Chair
Republican Party of Los Alamos

Thank you, That Concerned Citizen, for your passionate response to the many letters written. Believe it or not, I agree with you, and I take up your challenge.

Although I share the political affiliation with the current party in power, does not mean I completely agree with all of their actions. Especially those that threaten our freedoms or future.

Many in my own Party have heard me call out the hypocritical notion that a party can call for less government, but mandate that the government decide who can marry.

We’re talking about Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the President of the United States, trying to help her boss wriggle around his still-unfounded tweet that Barack Obama tapped his phone in Trump Tower. The President’s charge of fake news as a blanket statement can’t possibly apply to every case and is at the very least carelessly imprecise.

I find this surprising for a city like Los Alamos that most conservative people are silent about a lying and threatening government (e.g.
