To the Editor:
A week or so ago my wife received a letter from Progressive Democrat Gerald Carbone, a Warwick mayoral candidate.
After she read it she asked if I would care to. I must say it was one of the strangest letters I have ever read from a political candidate. While I am certainly happy he overcame his suffering, it escapes me why he felt the need to share such personal history.
May I proffer that I feel very strongly that after 70-plus years I have never ever been so afraid (yes, afraid) for my children and grandchildren of the progressive Democrats, a.k.a. the Democratic Socialists led by the man married in the U.S.S.R. To my friends and acquaintances in Warwick, I sincerely urge you to reject the politics of Mr. Carbone, Ms. Calkin, Mr. Regunberg, et-al.
To those who may require their memories refreshed, the U.S.S.R. was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics now relegated (thank God) to the ash heap of history.
Socialism in the 20th century was responsible for the deaths of 100 million people. The fear I alluded to earlier is that this one-party state of ours will fall for this socialist message.
Please, my friends, I ask you again to resoundingly reject this morbid political philosophy whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head.
