Letter: Constitutional principles

Regarding James Odenkirk’s letter of Aug. 18, entitled simply ‘Republicans,’ if espousing conservatism is ‘inflammatory quackery,’ and desiring a return to constitutional principles is a “quagmire of falsehoods and propaganda,” what, pray tell, is the total abandonment by the Democrats of our Constitution, which intended a limited central government, not an all-powerful one?

It is truly amazing that in some minds the advocating of a return to constitutional principles is seen as ‘radical,’ while they themselves advocate the total desertion of those principles, including an all-powerful federal government as well as a dictatorial presidency — so long as that president is a ‘progressive’ Democrat.
