I have an issue with Mr. Randleman's letter. The GOP is trying to strengthen the party and become more centrist. That is the very thing the Democratic party has been trying to achieve ever since Ronald Reagan took office.
I applaud the GOP for finally seeing that 80 percent of all Americans are centrist in terms of how they view our political system and the world (remember the bell curve?). If it includes revamping how they reach out to the gay and pro-choice factions, I’m all for it.
Not everyone has the ultra-conservative views that Mr. Randleman possibly possesses. And the GOP has been ruled by that 10 percent minority for way too long.
