I disagree

Dear Mr. Tancredo I listened to what you said the other day about civics testing etc. and had to let you know that I wholeheartedly disagree with this premise. It is the job of those running for office to educate the public who by the way pay the legislatures taxes. If one side is enticing with free money it is our job as republicans to convince as many as possible that this has consequences on all Americans and that it is to their advantage to  vote our way.  but to deny voting priveledge on basis of any kind of literacy is wrong even if they are poor and in the end pay no taxes it is taken out of their pay and therefore their voice is immutable as conservative it is our duty to eliminate them by first convincing them and then by providing them sound policy that in turn gets them jobs and then they can see the folly of the other side. I think you should go on publicly and renounce what you said as you have stirred up a hornets nest of looney left wing pundits that are hurting our cause.

  1. Greg,

    A true Conservative would not make the two sophomoric mistakes you made in your attempt to pose as a "Conservative".

    1) The "job of those running for office" is not to educate, it is to represent the voters. As is done with any Republic form of government.

    2) There is not a "voting privilidge" voting is a right of citizens. A civics literacy test would ensure citizens understand why and what they are voting for.

    Lastly, policy does not get anyone a job, reducing taxes and regulatory reform will to that.

    Renouncing the Socialist agenda of Barak Obama and those who voted for him because of his "rock star" status and little else is not something that is "Conservative" or anything else.
