This in response to a letter published by the Middletown press from resident Eric Kuhn
In order to say that "Nationally, the Republican Party is the party of non minorities." One has to totally disregard the fact that one of the founding pillars of the Republican Party was the support of non-minorities in particular black non minorities.
To Mister Kuhn's assertion that Republicans live to prevent non-white voters from voting, I can only surmise the mountain of evidence in Connecticut and in many of blue area across these United States, that many a lifelong Democrat career has been nourished by preventing non-white voters from voting any other way than Democrat straight across the ticket.
By the way, when it comes to the so-called voter suppression by Republicans with such things as voter ID LAWS, in order to make the argument work, one has to start with the assuming that black voters like me are too stupid to figure out how to get proper identification in order to vote. Somehow requiring me to show identification in order to buy alcohol does not unfairly prevent me from buying a six-pack. Somehow requiring me to show identification in order to get a library card does not disenfranchise me from the public library system. Somehow requiring me to show identification in order to board an airplane does not unfairly suppress my equal right to access air transportation.
The Republican Party, of which I am a proud member, champions the values of individual freedom for ALL people that enabled this nation to rise to a level of greatness heretofore unseen in human history.
Too many members up today's Democratic Party seek and hold power through class warfare and racial politics.
It is not Republicans that continue to perpetuate the myth that black folks and other minorities are not quite smart enough, tough enough, or hard-working enough to succeed in America without help from the government. That is a Democrat philosophy.
I have a question for you.
How is it that here in the great state of Connecticut, the party that, according to mister Kuhn, hates black people, is the only party that has ever sent a black representative to Congress and is the only party that has black candidates for federal office?
The Democrat Party, in Connecticut which according to Mister Kuhn, looooves black people, appears to only like black folk up to a certain level.
Let's be honest here folks, the top tier of Connecticut's Democratic Party is as white as a Klan rally.
If you are a person of color who wishes to seek federal office, you need to roll with the GOP.
In 2012 when I, a proud American who happens to be black, virtually walked in off the street and announced that I would be seeking the Republican nomination for United States Congress in our third district, there was only one question. "Do you think you have the goods? If so, go for it."
That is as it should be when it comes to the dreams, aspirations and goals of every American. The United States of America is the one place on earth where regardless of where you come from or what you look like, if you think you've got the goods, you can take your shot.
Too many of our friends on the other side of the aisle have forgotten that fact, or worse, are choosing to ignore it for their own purposes.
No, overt racism, regardless of party, is not dead in America. But neither is the soft racism of low expectations which the late, great Ronald Reagan spoke about. That particular brand seems to rest mainly on only one side of the aisle.
It is precisely because of the misguided, ill-informed and bankrupt philosophies of racial and social elitists and political misanthropes like Mr. Kuhn that I am, and shall remain, a proud member of the Republican Party.
Connecticut's Republican Party need only choose to represent all of the people in a manner that protects the freedoms of all of the people.

These African women just discovered something that too many Americans are willing to forget.
Nothing puts tyranny to flight more effectively than armed citizens determined to protect their lives, families and property.
As reported in this story by http://countercurrentnews.com,
"Several Nigerian media outlets have been reporting on local women in the villages of Attagara and Kawuri in Borno State who recently disarmed nearly a dozen Boko Haram terrorists. The notorious pseudo-Islamic terror groups tried to attack the Attagara and Kawuri communities over the weekend but the insurgents were instantly repelled by a group of armed women.
The Attagara and Kawuri villages in Gwoza and Bama Local Government Areas of Borno State resisted the attack using an array of local talismans and, of course, their assault weapons came in handy as well."
It is ironic that people on the other side of the world are embracing private gun ownership as a guardian of freedom even as America is flirting with letting that same guardian slip away.
The founding fathers of America had it right
"[T]he said Constitution [should] be never construed . . . to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms."
Samuel Adams, Signer of the Declaration, “Father of the American Revolution”

In the United States of America:
We don't worry about catching a bullet while casting our ballot.
We don't fear being arrested for dancing in a You Tube video.
We don't scan the skies for incoming missiles during backyard barbecues.
We don't suffer the horror of having our school girls kidnapped en masse by masked terrorists.
These are just a few of the things going on in the world today that we Americans don't have to worry about happening to us because of the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives in the name of our freedom.
Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough, but it's the very least we can do.
Thank you to all of my comrades in arms, past and present, who died so that I can sleep peacefully in my bed.

If you listen closely, every once in awhile a career politician will accidentally give their true position away.
such was the case recently with State Senate Majority Leader Martin M. Looney, who has been the Democratic state senator from the 11th District for 22 years.
MarryE. O'Leary, of the New Haven Register, quotes Sen. Looney as saying, Republican strategy since the 1980s, is to "dismantle government, disable government and prevent government from being able to run effectively and then blame it for not being able to run effectively. Democrats recognize that while government may not be the answer all the time, effective government is an important answer a good deal of the time.
Translation: Democrats tend to believe that more government and more of your tax dollars is the answer to many of our problems.
I respectfully but vociferously disagree.
More regulations won't make more businesses move to Connecticut and hire people. If that were the case, our state unemployment rate would be near zero right now.
More government intervention doesn't mean better education for our children.
If that were the case, Connecticut's educational achivement gap wouldn't be the largest in the entire nation, which it is. And such large numbers of mostly black and brown young men wouldn't be going directly from high school to hard time in prison.
More taxes dollars on candy and so-called junk food, as proposed by Democrat Sen Richard Blumenthal, won't make our fat children suddenly shed pounds by switching to carrot sticks during their hours in front of the Xbox. But this sweet deal would most certainly lead to another cavity in the taxpayer's pocketbook.
Some things, like Parenting, Personal Responsibility and visionary Free Enterprise which drives innovation and puts people to work are all NON-LEGISLATABLE.
Benjamin Franklin, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, wrote,
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have need of more masters."
Apparently Senator Looney and his peers believe that we the unwashed peasants are too stupid to look after ourselves and are in need of more master government to look after us, at our own expense.
