Letter: ‘Voters beware!’

September 27, 2022

When Oregon and Jackson County Republicans endorse the MAGA Big Lie that the 2020 election was stolen, they tell voters where they stand. Voters beware!

This confirms that local and state Republican candidates seek voter suppression, an end to women’s reproductive choice and other personal freedoms, and policy based on QAnon delusions rather than evidence and science.

In Oregon, the 2022 election is as much about defending democracy and our individual freedoms against the Republican onslaught as it is anywhere else. Republicans claim to be the party of law and order, but they now promote defunding the Department of Justice and rioting in the streets if they don’t get their way.

As conservatives across the nation desert the MAGA party, they argue genuine conservatives need to put country and state above party and vote for Democratic candidates who still stand for democracy.
