Letter — On the same page with Honest Abe

Concise is nice! Yet, when I wrote “Reason is immortal, all else mortal,” a respondent had the audacity to accuse me of not knowing what I was talking about! I was talking about how to measure our lives based on a truth existing around 500 years before Christ. The respondent did not address this truth.

I ask, does the philosopher’s rationale rate higher than the “erroneous rationale” of the atheist with California’s 9th Circuit Court? The respondent lives in “Christmas” Valley and insists Christianity is imposing upon him. I believe that is succinct; the whole answer which the liberal left operates under.

Life is not measured in a context of politics. Our national existence isn’t either. The first atheist here saw no Republican inconsistency. That is all there was — Republicans; a republic is what we are, the rest is mutation. Silly men and women beating each other over the head is not nice nor concise in the contest of our national purpose. Consider the great numbers of us now, who can be “civil” in respect for others and still respond, with grace and courtesy to our fellowmen. That is heart and soul, American! It was Abe Lincoln who said, … “A new nation under God.” We are a sacred design. Don’t dare trash us!
