Letter: Forget Sunshine Patriots, we need liberty lovers

To the editor:

Kenneth R. DeVoe


In today’s high school books, it is difficult to locate the revolutionary iconoclast author Thomas Paine. I harken to his historic words, “These are times that try men’s souls,” and he further writes of the “summer soldier and sunshine patriot,” who in time of crisis will shirk their duty ... I wish to nominate a few of my choices for the latter (dis)honor:

The CEO of food chain Chick-Fil-A, who was supported by millions of Americans when he was perceived as “anti-gay,” and now he has apologized to the homosexuals and is welcoming them with open arms! Hello! McDonald’s!

Next is House “Republican” John Boehner, who, while professing to be opposed to the constitutional-destroying Democrats, somehow puts up no resistance and nods approvingly.
