To the Editor:
Over the last 30 years, the GOP has dominated and the years of national decline since Reaganism reared its ugly head with the slogan, “government is the problem not the solution.”

Under George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, the GOP has either caused or contributed to deregulation of corporation, union busting, tax cuts for the wealthy, a shrinking middle class, lost manufacturing jobs, unprecedented federal debt, unbridled wall street greed, bubble and bust cycles, the worst recession since the Great Depression, two unfinished wars, the erosion of civil liberties, environmental deregulation and a continued dependence on fossil fuels, especially foreign oil.

Does the electorate really want to hand power back to this party? Sadly, with the short term memories of too many voters, there is a possibility of it happening. Just remember the years of 1992-2000, the most prosperous years in United States history. Hopefully voters will not have a short-term memory. The return of the GOP would be a disaster. Pray it does not happen.
