Letters to the Editor

Like Soviet Union

Re the July 27 letter “Senators are not Republican enough:” It is appalling that any American citizen would chastise a U.S. senator for lack of “loyalty” to a political party or a president.

The letter’s last paragraph was especially horrific. A call for a senator to be “punished by the president and party” calls to mind the Soviet Union of the 1950s or the Germany of the 1930s or even today’s North Korea. Punishment should only occur when an official has broken the law or collaborated with foreign adversaries.
