A certain Republican wrote a vicious letter to the State IAP Chairman and the State IAP director criticizing our party for taking votes away from Republicans and so getting democrats elected and he used very foul language in his text. What follows was the State Chairman's response:
Your text is obscene and vulgar. Using the "F" word is not helping your case. Although you have the right to believe as you want, a right protected by the First Amendment, so do we of the Independent American Party, and your vicious and vituperative attacks are not going to change that. You are wrong if we you think that swearing at us is going to change our life long dedication to supporting the constitution and traditional American values. The Republican Party has failed to stop the conversion of the United States into a socialist nation. The leading Republicans openly opposed with great hostility the election of Donald Trump, because he was upsetting their apple cart. The Republican Party leadership as a whole is not committed to stopping the headlong rush of our nation into fascism, socialism, and tyranny. And it is not committed to stopping the invasion of our country by illegal aliens. The IAP is keeping alive the traditional values which have largely been abandoned by the Republican Party--the protection of innocent life, of the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, of the right of our citizens to keep and bear arms and to be free from confiscatory and oppressive taxation, to name a few. And Aaron Ford nor any other democrat was elected because the IAP candidate took votes away from the Republican.
If the Republican Party had been doing what it has claimed to believe in, we wouldn't need the IAP, but sadly, it has abandoned the Constitution and has become a go-with-the-flow party of make believe conservatives. The IAP is a lifeboat where people who believe like the Founding Fathers can go when they realize that the Titanic we once called America is sinking. Rather than attacking us, you should be helping us keep the lifeboat afloat, so when the republicans and democrats and others finally wake up and realize that the two party system is really a twin party system which offers no real choice, they'll have a place to go. You ought to grab your life vest and swim to a place where the beliefs upon which America was founded are cherished and treasured.
I invite you to rise above your filthy language and stop attacking the party which wants to keep America independent and wants to preserve the right of Americans to their independence from tyranny.
Sincerely, Joel Hansen. IAPN State Chairman.
Then this dyed in the wool Republican wrote again and said that Joel Hansen had gotten Aaron Ford elected AG and excoriated the IAP again for destroying the country. Joel Hansen responded again:
I don't know where you are getting your information from, but even if you assume that all of my votes in the AG race came from the Republican candidate, he still lost to Aaron Ford by more than that total. So you are the one who is 100% wrong. Besides, your assumption that everyone who votes for us would have voted republican is wrong. Many democrats who are fed up with the radical left which has taken over the Democratic Party vote for us because the can't bring themselves to vote for a Republican. In other words, we are giving honest and sincere patriotic people who really believe in constitutional government and traditional American values the opportunity to vote their consciences instead having to choose between the lesser of two evils which is still an evil choice.
I hope you'll rethink your position. And even if you don't, you still ought to stop hating us. Hate can canker your soul.
Sincerely, Joel Hansen.
