What is there to be afraid of?

Dear Editor:

Before you THINK about voting Republican in the upcoming election, turn off the noise of distractions about Russia and fake news and North Korea and take a long LOOK at what the GOP has been doing to America.

We successfully fought to keep the ACA and health care for 32 million Americans. The GOP then stripped the ACA of its requirement for insurance to actually cover care, so Americans can again buy junk insurance that pays for nothing and causes bankruptcies. They have stripped the provision that insurance cover people with pre-existing conditions at the same cost as healthy people, so millions are again priced out of health care.

We successfully fought to keep our public lands from being turned over to the states for mismanagement. So the GOP instead has stripped monument protection from millions of acres and turned the BLM and Forest Service into printing machines of mining, oil and gas leases, opening millions of pristine hunting and range lands over to oil companies. They've also reversed protections from mining waste for the rivers that water our crops and feed our families. They also removed any requirement for mining companies to clean up their sites when finished, leaving that to the taxpayer.

And the worst is yet to come. Those "entitlements" they want to cut that you believe are welfare and Medicaid, are not. They are YOUR Social Security and Medicare, which are NOT tax revenue, but they want to spend it as such.

Fox is telling Americans to "Be afraid of the liberal agenda." So just what is it that they are supposed to be afraid of? Our liberal agenda is education and health care for all, ending poverty, raising wages, protecting public lands and the environment. Seriously WHAT is in there to be afraid of?
