Excerpts from a letter in our local newspaper.
The writer starts out by saying that although he was not originally a Trump fan, he simply couldn’t support Hillary because of, well, all those BAD things she’s noted for. (He actually wanted Cruz.) However, as you will see from the following excerpts, he’s now a solid supporter.
First, he points out that “Congress has wasted 2 1/2 years to try to dump Trump because of so-called collusion with Russia, when the Democrats actually worked with Russia to get that info in the first place.”
(Note: I don’t think he understands the big picture.)
He continues by saying what a “waste of valuable time” it’s been in the attempts to “dump Trump” when we could have used the time to … “rebuild infrastructure to close the border with Mexico and stop the drugs.”
He continues …
What angers me most is that Democrats thought Trump was more important to dump than fixing roads and airports, stopping illegals flooding into America, ending drugs killing our younger population and the murdering of our newborns.
(Note: I wonder if he realizes that “fixing roads and airports” is part of the “infrastructure” that was supposed to be discussed at a recent meeting between the Democrats and Trump … that ended rather abruptly.)
Then he scolds the Democrats! “Shame on all of you that are still in that Democratic camp” … and tells them to “Stop hiding behind that donkey.”
And finally, the coup de grace:
Trump has decreased the tax rates, increased jobs, increased trade, appointed great men as Supreme Court judges and hundreds of district judges, eliminated federal regulations, fought MS-13 gangs, destroyed 95% of ISIS, reduced the killing of our policemen, backed up our military and 200 other important items.
He has kept his word in every aspect except where Democrats have blocked it in the House. Wake up people. You are destroying all we have built upon the last 200 years.
(Note: The Democrats have only been in control of the house for less than six months.)
I actually liked his phrase, “Wake up people.” In fact, I couldn’t agree more because it’s pretty apparent he and others like him really need to wash the sleep out of their eyes.
This letter clearly demonstrates the views of approximately 40-45% of the U.S. population. Less than half. Yet that group of people have dug their heels into the ground and refuse to see their “leader” for what he truly is — a man who is simply incapable of effectively running a country. Few are aware that many of his “accomplishments” are nothing more than the termination of actions made by someone else. Rarely has he offered anything to replace them or set up new and better options (e.g., Affordable Care Act).
Further, they look the other way at the MANY harmful actions of Trump as regards our relationship with other countries. They’ve become so enraptured with MAGA that they refuse to accept the importance of cooperative interactions.
And of course, since most of them refuse to accept climate change, they’re blind to Trump’s fateful decisions related to the environment.
I can’t help but wonder if they will like it if/when he puts on the robe and crown that he is so ardently seeking.
