Liberal agenda is damaging nation

In response to a letter that appeared on March 10, let me ask: Why should conservatives do all the compromising?

When it comes to principles such as limited government, lower taxes, more adherence to the Constitution and holding fast to certain key moral principles, what is wrong in standing firm and not backing down? Conservatives, largely in the GOP, are looking out for America’s better interests and should be respected for taking the stands they do.

Maybe the liberals need to start seeing that much of their agenda – such as more and higher taxes, giving more to those who don’t do the bare minimum to fend for themselves, and other things that are not in keeping with the general welfare of the nation – is so wrong and unacceptable that they need to start rethinking how they do things.
