LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Tired of Republican ‘propaganda’

Tired of Republican ‘propaganda’

Dear Editor,

I want to express my disgust for some of these Republican candidates, and their misrepresentation in commercials on TV.

One is Todd Staples. I know for a personal fact, if you are injured from a chemical exposure, he is not in support of “you” in getting help with anything! This man is a corporate insider, and is in the chemical corporation’s corner, not yours! So many of these candidates are in the pocket of oil companies, pharmaceutical and insurance companies! Our utility costs are higher than ever before! How long will we allow the high price insults and assaults on our Texas neighbors and citizens?

I am so tired of these candidates Republican propaganda on Fox TV, and other networks wanting our votes which will not work for the public good,or benefit on behalf of.

The people need to know, Republican’s cavalier conservative values, is anything but conservative or Christian. Using a Christian sentence in their campaigns, then taking corporate kickbacks and promoting inequality, is no longer acceptable. Ministers and preachers who promote Republican candidates should wake up, take a look at what propaganda they are being fed, then examine their calling to preach.

Politicians using racism and hate for a black president, and impeachment, claim suing President Obama and hate for the Affordable Healthcare Act, is actually their anger for fear of loss of a lifestyle of monetary greed. The United States was the only industrialized country in the world, that did not have a national healthcare program.

Greg Abbott is certainly among those using many of these same campaign talking points, which hurts Texans, in their kitchen table budgets. He supports no regulation on carbon emissions and corporate polluters which wrecks our environment and eventually our health. One only has to remember the disaster in the “West, Texas” community as an example of years of neglected regulation in Texas.
