Sore losers in SCV

When I moved to Santa Clarita a few years ago, I knew this was a GOP town.  

And some of the stuff I witnessed and heard during this last presidential election was pretty way out there, but nonetheless I took it in stride because freedom of speech and expression is what this country is all about. It should be encouraged.

A peaceful transition of power has taken place after every election and that is truly remarkable.

But when you start hearing things like President Obama is a secret Muslim who wants to implement sharia law, that he is a communist who wants to send our youth to atheist indoctrination camps, that he is fascist, that he is a Dijon mustard lover or whatever other stupidity is thrown out there, you have to seriously wonder what the heck is in the water out here.  

We are now even hearing talk about secession, for crying out loud.

But what really took the cake for me was a letter to the editor published May 8 that compared Obama to Hitler (“Sound familiar?”). Really?

I have heard of sore losers but come on, folks, this is getting to the point of lunacy. I guess the only thing my right wing neighbors and friends have to look forward to is that they have to put up with President Obama for only seven more years (hopefully).

Then using the same process in which President Obama was elected, you can try to get someone to your liking elected.

I am thinking a white male, evangelical Christian, compassionate conservative would fit the bill.

On second thought, we already tried that and we all know how that guy turned out.
