Dear Ron Reagan,
We are all deeply saddened by the loss of Nancy Reagan, your mother and our First Lady. She was the light in your father’s eyes and a blessing to our Nation as she stood steadfast next to our President and his leadership. We miss them and will never forget them.
Conservatives like me acknowledge that you are a self-indentified “progressive liberal” and have sometimes been at serious odds with your father’s political ideology. However, we have never doubted the love you have for your father.
You have recently communicated your support for Bernie Sanders, a self-avowed socialist. I would like to ask you what you think about Bernie Sanders’ view on your father’s estate. I believe it is currently worth at least $40 million dollars. It is now all yours and the other survivors of Nancy and President Reagan’s estate.
If you could, please afford me some questions about your father’s estate.
Do you think your mom and dad worked hard for what they owned? If, given what your candidate for President wants, (which is a 55% estate tax on your mom and dad’s estate), doesn’t that make you and the other survivors of the estate a minority owner of such? Do you think you and the other survivors deserve your inherited estate? If not, why? Do you think your mom and dad think you deserved such? Do you think they would agree with the notion that the bulk of it should be handed over to the federal government?
Do you think Bernie Sanders and the federal government will be a better trustee of your fortune? If so, why? Have they proved to be more beneficent with your money than you have?
Do you think that the US government, confiscating the bulk of your inheritance by force, is somehow a benevolent measure? Why do you support a candidate who thinks he knows better to do with whatever he wants with the bulk of your inheritance than you and the other survivors do?
In closing, I think that you would find that most conservatives think that you are a better steward to your inheritance than the US Government, even if your own charity might collide with our ideology. I know that you are a self avoided atheist, but even still, God Bless you.
