Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

This letter is for Democratic politicians, not Democratic voters.

What President Trump did to Soleimani was the right thing to do. This man killed hundreds of Americans over the years and needed to be taken out. What gets me is how low the Democratic politicians reacted. As low as the Democrats are, I never thought they would stoop this low, especially with the terrorist country of Iran involved.

Every single Democratic politician in the House or Senate should be kicked out of office. The so-called Squad and a few others should be booted out of the country. All of the Democratic senators and representatives have no minds of their own, they do whatever Pelosi tells them to do.

Let’s start over and elect Democrats who have their own minds and our own country at stake. It’s hard to believe how Democrats hate President Trump, even when our country (not politics) is at stake. I would like to talk to these idiots face to face and see what’s between their ears. But I know this will never happen.

If the Democrats are not voted out of office, their hate for President Trump will continue ever after the man is elected in 2020. I would bet that half the Democrats don’t know why they hate President Trump. I think it’s because of the media and a few of the lying Democratic leaders like Pelosi, Schumer and Schiff.

We all have differences of opinion, but not like the class of Democratic politicians. Hopefully the Democratic voters (who I know are not stupid) will stop voting for their party and vote these idiot clowns out of office.

I really did not like writing this letter, but it needs to be said.

Only the epithets have changed

To the Editor:

I find it more and more distressing that so many people now seem to find it impossible to discuss current affairs without hurling epithets and invective at anyone and everyone who could possibly hold an opposing view. I have not seen such a level of weak logic since the 1960s, when those opposed to the Vietnam War, including priests and grandmas in tennis shoes, were routinely disparaged as “left-wing, long-hair, pinko Commie hippies.”

Please, if you cannot come up with a cogent defense of your views, shut up!

By the way, if I am not mistaken, those who were against the Vietnam War turned out to be right, but not before thousands of Americans died, billions of dollars were wasted and a president resigned his office in disgrace. Yet, here we go again. Only the epithets have changed.
