Regarding Robert Olson’s “Depraved liberals” letter of Aug. 1:
Yes, Mr. Olson, we liberals have reached the depths of depravity, wasting our time trying to convince conservatives that climate change is real and that we need to save our planet.
Only depraved people such as we would want affordable health care for all. You know better, of course.
It was perfect before Obamacare, and the World Health Organization didn’t know what they were talking about when they ranked the U.S. health care system No. 38 in the world.
We’ve plunged even deeper, suggesting the wealthy should pay their fair share of the taxes, wanting to do something about the high cost of college tuition, actually believing that negotiation might be preferable to war, or that gun control laws might prevent further crimes.
Of course, it’s pretty depraved not to have the NRA’s hand with a big wad of cash in our pockets.
It must seem the height of immorality that liberals seem to care about the welfare of all human beings, instead of the continuing rise of the more deserving wealthy whites who dominate conservative segments of the population.
Most depraved of all, we have been accused of wanting to destroy the Christian values that made this country great.
Some of us might agree with comedian John Fugelsang, “If you don’t want your tax dollars to help the poor, then stop saying you want a country based on Christian values, because you don’t.”
