Conservatives seek to divide us

Two letters in the Readers Respond section struck a chord with me. One, "When liberals and libertarians unite" (March 10) upset me with the statement: "We can't tell the real Americans who love and defend our country from the liberals who hate America anymore." I consider myself a liberal. I don't hate America. What I don't like is when some Americans attack other Americans in the so-called name of defending America. A classic example of this is Mitt Romney's now infamous "47 percent" statement.

The other letter that struck a chord with me, in the same vein, is: "Ehrlich is wrong about Obama and SSDI" (March 10). Here is an example of a so-called defender of America, former Governor Ehrlich, attacking fellow Americans with mis-statements and mis-representations, which seems to be his modus operandi, which is attested to by the frequent Readers Respond letters that take him to task for his less than accurate columns. If you truly want to defend America then support justice and fairness for "all" Americans.
