Letter to the Editor: A Commitment to America

Recently Republicans have created a “Commitment to America” document to lay out how they will govern when they retake control of the House, Senate and presidency. 

The plan includes four categories: An Economy That’s Strong, A Nation That’s Safe, A Future That’s Built on Freedom and A Government That’s Accountable. A parental bill of rights is also in the plan because Republicans believe that parents should have a say in their child’s education (Democrats voted against a similar bill in Wisconsin). Republicans have solutions to the problems we’re experiencing right now.

Our economy is in decline, and retirement funds have taken a huge hit. Inflation is hitting people hard through the cost of gas, groceries, housing and vehicle prices. The cost of propane and other energy sources we need to heat our homes has dramatically increased. I believe the unrealistic push for sole dependency on green energy is responsible for this. We need a realistic, all-of-the-above approach when it comes to energy.

Biden has undone everything Trump did concerning securing the border, with more than three times as many illegal crossings now versus then, according to data from the U.S. Border Patrol. The number of deadly drugs pouring through our southern border is wreaking havoc on our nation.

And when it comes to crime, the statistics show a dramatic increase in our state – specifically in Milwaukee. I believe this is due to low-bail policies and movements to defund the police, largely from Democrats. 

And through public-records requests by Wisconsin Right Now, it’s been discovered that since 2019, Gov. Tony Evers’ Parole Commission has released at least 884 convicted criminals, freeing them early on parole, mostly into Wisconsin communities, including more than 270 murderers and attempted murderers. In my opinion, this shows that Democrats are soft on crime and are not making our communities safer.

We need a change. For those reasons and more, please consider voting for Republicans up and down the ballot this November.
