Dear Red States Dear Red States copyright © 2008 Betsy L. Angert. BeThink.org Mail entered my inbox. No postage was necessary for this delivery. The carrier was not a pigeon or the United States Postal Service. The sender made use of the Internet. Jayne hoped for a speedier means to share what brought her such smiles. The enclosure began with an enthusiastic note from my friend. Jayne wrote of the glee she felt after she read "Dear Red States." Jayne was joyous. Who might have inscribed such a communiqué, she thought. Excited, as she studied the information offered in the script, Jayne was inspired to share the imaginative request for unity rather than investigate its origin. The passage was quickly forwarded to others, me included. Now, I share "Dear Red States" with you. Dear reader, resident of a Stated dominated by Republicans, or those amongst the Progressive population, you too may wish to pay particular attention to the text that has delighted many across America. Please travel through this "link" or follow along the path of words that will lead you to the ultimate "Dear Red State" recitation[s]. The first "Dear Red States" letter may have appeared on Craig's List in June 2005. Other variations have emerged as sentiments evolve. In 2008, as the nation is perhaps more divided or more desirous of togetherness rationalizations for secession and reasons to unite are revealed. Persons in the self-defined Red States may resent being but a fraction in a formidable county, one that is ostensibly "ruled" by a central government.

Yet, Conservatives, committed Republicans, will vote for change. Countless on the Right have openly endorsed Barack Obama, a Democrat for President. Numerous established and esteemed dynasties remain steadfast and staunchly devoted to what are commonly thought to be traditional mores. Yet, persons within these same lineages say aloud and in print the Democratic Obama Biden ticket will best represent them, their long held values, and the country they love. CC Goldwater, granddaughter of the renowned Republican, Arizona Senator and a Presidential aspirant Barry Goldwater illustrates this veracity.Betsy L. Angert :: Conservatives for ChangeMs Goldwater professes a profound connection to her past. She treasures her heritage and has faith in the principles Paka, her granddad, the father of traditional, time-honored values the Republican Party holds dear. CC, who speaks for her relatives and herself, cherishes the creed Paka avowed. "We believe strongly in what our grandfather stood for: honesty, integrity, and personal freedom, free from political maneuvering and fear tactics." However, the woman who penned her grandfather's biography said, "I am still struck by certain 'dyed in the wool' Republicans who are on the fence this election, as it seems like a no-brainer to me. Myself, along with my siblings and a few cousins, will not be supporting the Republican presidential candidates this year." Faithful in the doctrine she learned at Paka Goldwater's knee CC and her blood will cast a ballot for Democrat, Barack Obama. Chris Buckley, the son of the famed William F. Buckley also reveres Republican ethics. He respects his roots. This is the reason he cannot commend Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin. Christopher Buckley did place his confidence in the former prisoner-of-war McCain during...
