Dear Editor:

The GOP promotes the tried and true principles of maximum personal freedom, limited government, public safety, national security, and the American Dream, which are the values that have made America the greatest and safest nation on earth.

While we’ve experienced tumultuous times over the past six years, the pendulum is swinging back as a mighty Republican wave is sweeping the nation.

The 2014 midterm elections saw our party take control of the U.S. Senate and make huge gains in the House and in numerous gubernatorial and state races, as well as taking the NYS Senate.

However, here in New York City where we live in an ultra-progressive bubble, we often forget that the rest of our nation, except for some large urban centers that have been deteriorating under decades of failed progressive policies, lives by these proven Republican principles.

Where in our nation can you find a mayor who wins the election after campaigning on a platform of cop bashing, and then as mayor, charge every police officer with racism and brutality and call for retraining because of systemic racism?

However, the vast majority of New Yorkers support our police and believe in the greatness of our country and our system of laws.

The Queens Village Republican Club has been a highly visible participant in candlelight vigils for our slain police officers. We have joined the hundreds pouring out for the citywide nonpartisan “Support Your Local Police” rallies organized by retired NYPD captain Joe Concannon under the newly formed Square Deal Committee, leading up to the grand rally at City Hall on March 8.

We believe that the NYPD put their own lives on the line in order to protect our lives every day, and we have the moral obligation to stand up and show that we New Yorkers support our police.
