As a former Republican, I am deeply troubled by the direction
the Collage Republicans is taking the party with their campaign to
stamp out liberal speech on campus.
The Republican Party has a long history of great leadership. It
was the party that freed the slaves; it was the party that reunited
a country torn apart by racism.
Recently I see that this great party has lost its moral compass.
The Republican Party has strayed into spying on its own people with
the U.S. Patriot Act, killing its own people in war, deceiving its
own people with altered scientific documents and denying its own
people the basic right to marry.
I urge all Republicans to look within your own set of morals and
decide if the path of speech restriction is the one you want to
follow. Do you want to win elections because you are the party that
silenced the dissenters? Or do you want to win because you are the
party that represents justice, liberty and equality for all
Americans. The choice is yours alone to make. Choose well.
