Re: the Dec. 3 editorial "Political donors should be known."

The push to publicly identify political donors is a blatant attempt by the political left to pin down conservative donors so that the left can smear, bully and boycott them. This is not conjecture, but has been the tactic of the left whenever controversial issues are at stake and conservative advocates are identified.

No one is afraid of a negative response and in fact diverse opinion is welcomed by the right to better illuminate and clarify differing opinions and allow the electorate to make their decision. However, this has not been the way of the left, who have meant to destroy opponent's reputations and livelihoods and therefore stifle opinions with which they disagree.
