Eager to inject a fresh voice into Orange County's political discourse, a squad of twentysomething conservatives have launched a semi-regular newsletter they have christened Illuminare. Although the name sounds like some new condo project in North Tustin, the publication is anything but pedestrian. The tone is irreverent and impudent, a desktop Mother Jones gone skittering off to the fringes of the political right.

Re "O.C. Latinos Are Key to Bush Carrying California in November," May 7 Orange County Voices: It sounds as if the column writer, Matthew Cunningham, was still hung over from Cinco de Mayo. How else can you explain his kooky "analysis" of Latino politics in Orange County? As a Latino who lives in Orange County, I must laugh at the idea that someone by the name of Cunningham can inform the public of what it is we want. What are his credentials for doing so? Being Steve Forbes' caddy?

In her letter (Sept. 13) about Prop. 174, Kathy McGuire seems to think it would "take" money from public schools and "give" it to--horrors!--"unregulated" private schools. She is plain wrong. It is not the public school system's money to be taken way. Education tax dollars belong to the taxpayers, and Prop. 174 will put parents in charge of their education tax dollars. Parents, rather than the bureaucrats who have destroyed public education, will decide where and how their tax money will be spent.

Regarding the Nov. 15 editorial "Right-Wing Bent Hurts County GOP": Wake up and smell the coffee, Los Angeles Times. Orange County is a conservative place. That's why the local Republican Party is conservative. Your editorial writers must be amnesiacs. In June, a slew of Times-endorsed moderates challenged conservative Orange County legislators in the GOP primary. The moderates were shellacked. Why? Because Republican moderates and liberals are simply a press-savvy, moneyed minority within the party.

I am so rankled over the ridiculous column by Matthew Cunningham--co-founder of the Conservative Roundtable--("Proposed ID Cards Threaten Liberty," March 17) that I'm writing my first letter to the editor. The points he makes--"illegal immigration will inevitably abate"; we don't need "massive, intrusive governmental machinery," including fingerprinting at birth, which Cunningham believes "erodes liberty"; "the argument that the ID card will reduce welfare fraud is unpersuasive"--are all patently wrong!

Apparently, Gil Ferguson's support is so wafer thin he must enlist two of his staffers--Dorothy Hughes and Steve Brody--to deny he advised Assemblyman Paul Horcher to vote for Willie Brown, a charge entirely likely to be true. Dorothy Hughes takes a typically cheap shot, linking Ross Johnson to the "political chicanery" of Pat Nolan and Frank Hill, both of whom are the innocent victims of a federal witch hunt. All three men have done more for Republicans than 20 Gil Fergusons. Hughes also impugns Johnson for moving into the district to run, apparently forgetting that in 1990, her boss, Gil Ferguson (who was living in Marian Bergeson's Senate district)

Now that the Republicans have told Doris Allen what they really think of her, would she consider joining us Democrats? I hope so! FREDERICK P. NIDITCH Irvine So, gadfly Gil Ferguson has decided to run in the 35th state Senate District GOP primary against Sen. Ross Johnson, who pummeled Ferguson in a special election earlier this year. "I simply want to give people a choice," Ferguson opines. Ferguson's egomaniacal self-absorption obviously knows no bounds. Republicans will need every dollar they can raise in order to capture control of the state Senate in 1996.

At that time we offered this page as a forum and invited readers to join the debate by submitting their views on the future of the GOP and what its themes, appeals and programs should be. The comments published here are a representative sample of the responses received. GOP's 'Conservatism, Pro-Life Stance Didn't Cost It White House' Rob Hurtt's (recent)
