To the editor:
I'm amused by Dan Thomasson's transparent sally as agent provocateur to the Republican Party. (Leavenworth Times, Sept. 19, 2013).
He and evidently the editors advance such arguments in the hope of widening and deepening factional fighting among Republicans. They figure thereby to continue and worsen the U.S. situation of having no effective opposition to the administration in power.
To the degree they succeed, the administration is left free to continue strangling the U.S. economically while inflicting totalitarian measures such as "Obamacare" and "banking reform" on the citizenry.
Next up: expect attempts to move the U.S. toward absorption by regional government conglomerations.
