I want freedom from Republicans trying to control my personal life | PennLive letters

So what do you really want? I want freedom from government control of my personal life. Extremist GOP politicians, and almost all have jumped into that fascist sinking ship, want to control Americans’ personal decisions. Ever since President Ronald Regan the Republican Party has been against big government and in favor of freedom. Now, not only does big government control women’s reproductive rights in many states, but so many other things. They control whether children can learn actual truth about American history or a whitewashed version of what they want you to know as they attempt to rewrite history.
