These Pa. patriots want to give us back our governmentEdit
One of your front-page stories on July 10 was headlined "House Rebels Try to Break Iron the Grip of Leadership," to which I respond: Hallelujah, it's about time!
This group of both Republicans and Democrats should more aptly be called patriots. Dependent on their determination and support, they have the opportunity to sound the clarion call that says wake up, America. Let's change the current local, state and federal governments that are of the politicians, by the politicians and for the politicians back to what the Founding Fathers specifically intended. Nothing could be more apropos than having this group have their origins in Pennsylvania.
They are trying to fulfill Abraham Lincoln's hope that this government of, for and by the people "shall not perish from the Earth." Let's rally to their support.
