Letter: Power works against individual liberties

The GOP hierarchy won’t do anything contrary to the policies pushed by the current president because they support the current power structure, passively or actively. There may be subtle differences in the way the GOP would like those policies put into action, but nonetheless, the GOP wants all the power it can get at the expense of your/our liberty. The left/right paradigm is a false one — one that works against the individual liberties of every American citizen so they can retain power.
