Dear Republicans,

I am writing to express my outrage about a phrase I keep hearing over and over again by both voting Republicans as well as members running for election, "Under Obama, we are losing our freedom." I have heard versions of this repeatedly both in interviews given on NPR as well as from those running for office, yet no one ever explains what it means. In his Super Tuesday speech given in Steubenville, Ohio last night, Rick Santorum said, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is the beginning of the end of freedom in America. Once the government has control of your life, then they got you."

You say you're in favor of smaller government. That you don't want the government to involve itself in your daily life. And yet your party seems to be incredibly interested in doing just that. I don't even need to provide links for your continual interest in inserting your government into women's vaginas or your overwhelming desire to stick your government into the bedrooms of Americans. That's common knowledge. What might be less known is your trying to legislate specifically who is allowed to raise children. What about your efforts to control what words Americans are not allowed to say? You have even gone as far as legislating for the government to control what bathrooms Americans can use!

If any party is trying to cause America to lose its Freedom, it is yours. I beg you to re-examine how your privilege is causing you to destroy the lives of everyone who doesn't share that privilege.

Sincerely,

Baz
