Letter: Vote to save our country, freedom and lives

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Our current government cares more about power and money than people — that means you and I. Money talks and destroys the truth of our American way! To put an end to this government — which is anti-Constitution, anti-American way, and filled with politicians who are guilty of failing to fulfill their oaths of office and who are also traitors to America for supporting our current traitor in the White House — if you have not registered to vote and are of age to do so, I urge you strongly to get out and register. And once you are registered, I [urge] you to vote blue for Democrats to save our country and our freedoms and our lives.

And I am directing this message to those who have been attacked and hurt by this current government, and that means women, the poor, the LGBT community, Muslims, Mexicans and anyone who is not white like they want, and finally the middle class. They care only about the rich and themselves.

    Believe it or not, there is a large majority of people who disagree with you and are very happy with the way things are going. Economy and employment are the highest they’ve been in years. Unfortunately, Democrats are incredibly out of touch with even their own constituents. They are completely oblivious to what moderate Democrats and Independents want. It’s disgusting how far off they are. Like or hate Trump, people are happy. Just because the far left is pulling their hair out and screaming everywhere you look, they certainly don’t speak for the quiet majority.

      LOL that’s why they want open borders. Cheap labor with subsidies is a left wingers holy grail. You people think these leftist are concerned with actual Americans? That they lost blue collar votes is the biggest sign that they are looking to others to vote them into power.

      Any blue collar voter that supports dims is a fool. Goes triple for white males that vote for people so hostile to them.

        • Lulz

          LMAO which former blue states went red?

          Dims lost the blue collar vote. They lost the white male vote. They’re slowly losing minorities. All that’s left for their base is increasingly Marxist and psychopaths. They need fresh voters. Too me, a caravan of overfed refugees from Honduras demanding entry into the country with the help of I’m sure Soros or Bloomberg is an invasion. Trump will send the military to the border where they can hold exercises for eternity. When the people tap stops, dims of course will cry racism but never look at their own.

    Lloyd Kay, your message sounds like you have your politics wrong. It’s the Democrats and the liberal leftist nuts that are using “the women, the poor, the LGBT community, Muslims, Mexicans and anyone who is not white” to further their efforts to change the United States into a socialist enterprise in which the Democrats are in total power over lives, destinies, and in saying who gets what and how. In contrast, just look at how the national economy is growing, the amazing number of jobs now available, the ever-rising employment figures, how paychecks are larger, and how the gross domestic product is growing beyond estimates. For those registered to vote in November, I strongly suggest that voters elect Republicans in order to have national growth and prosperity continue and not diminish as would be the case if the likes of Schumer, Pelosi, Waters, Sanders, O’Rourke, and others take control. We need to continue efforts to “drain the swamp” in Washington and we must do all possible to keep the likes of Obama, Holder, Lerner, Warren, and Hillary Clinton from having influence over our lives.

    what has ‘this government’ done to people you know? you have never had a better economy than NOW…if you cannot make it now (make hay while the sun shines!) then I’d say that’s a problem for ya…
    but…democrackkks have done GREAT DAMAGE to this country and I used to BE one! Now, I am an official BITTER EX Democrackkk! NOW, there are legions more people who feel the same way!
    THEY are loving this country and this economy again! Democrackkks only want to bring everyone down with political correctness and ‘social justice’ which ain’t real…democrackkks are America’s BIGGEST ENEMY, bar none. The ORIGINAL party of SLAVERY, as they still espouse, and the founders of the KKK. We don’t want them. They are a dinosaur now with waning support, thank God.

    While I don’t necessarily agree with the attack speech in the author’s letter, I do strongly believe in the United States as the leader of freedom and justice in the world, in a government which is supposed to work towards the common good for both it’s citizens and everyone else everywhere else, and which believes that the have-nots are equal to the haves.

    There is no argument I am aware of which convinces me that our current national leadership has those goals as a priority. That’s the United States I believe in, and the one most people I know believe in. I salute the courage of the letter writer for standing up for his beliefs and I for one will be doing my best to do my part to create change.

    Way to go Lloyd Kay. You probably just sent countless folks in the opposite direction with your angry, semi-racist, diatribe.

      “You probably just sent countless folks in the opposite direction with your angry, semi-racist, diatribe.”

      I don’t think so. It’s not like you had any doubt who you were voting for. You just don’t like how others characterize your vote.

      • Lulz

        LMAO you mean judge dontcha? Dims of course never ever judge people now do they?

        • luther blissett

          Repeatedly describing the local electorate as ignorant and/or corrupt seems kinda judge-y.

    Democrats are completely oblivious to real problems. It’s really become an embarrassment how dysfunctional that party has become. They don’t even know their base any more. When people would rather vote for Donald Trump than your candidate, you have a YUGE problem.

  7. Mike

    Ok- how is current national leadership promoting Reagan’s vision of the United States as the Shining City on the Hill? Or George W. Bush’s Thousand Points of Light? If you don’t know what I’m talking about it, the googles is right over there.

    Perhaps nothing is more amusing than watching those who have been frantically trying to undo the result of a constitutionally correct elction accuse the victor of being an enemy of the constitition. If our president was actually the murderous tyrant leftists call him – a “Hitler” no less – the cattlecars & firing squads would have gotten busy some time ago. Instead we see the opposite as Demonicratic violence, from James Hodgkinson to Antifa, runs amok. Vote not only to chasten & banish the Demonicratic Party, but vote for prosperity & the rule of law. Vote for the survival of our American way of life which, regardless of whether or not you are “too smart” to realize it, is a blessed gift from God.

    I find it interesting and alarming that those on the margins of traditional American founding ideals and beliefs evidently do not understand that they are indeed on the margins. Surely, that must be frustrating. The liberal media does the best it can to try and convince those willing to listen that their marginal ideas of values, culture, genderisms, and entitlement are actually in the middle of American values. Nothing could be further from the truth. Liberals and progressives have much hard work to do in convincing middle and right leaning America that their ideas belong in the main stream of American thought.

    The ranting and the raving does nothing but to point out the fact that those on the margins belong on the margins until they can participate with ideas that merit a thoughtful dialogue. Yelling in someone’s face should not be considered acceptable behavior. To promote incivility on the wings of being a sore loser, out of touch values, lawlessness, and disrespect for the sovereignty of America is the wrong message. To vote for that assumes that the marginal liberal ideas are worthy of American values. Americans will not do that.

    Speaking of civility, one place to start might be to try reading an old book; Getting To Yes by Roger Fisher. You can find it on Amazon. It used to be a part of a business curriculum at most higher education institutions. By contrast, incivility can be found on 7th grade school yards, and there is where it should be learned – the futility of such behavior.

      Reading this from Stan just now. Extremely well put.

      I decided to not reply to Mr. Kay earlier as I did not feel it warranted a response.
      It is hate speech. It is a rant. Which defines his ability to discern relevant and important political and social issues of which we as citizens have a responsibility to be informed of, and to debate in a rational and civil manner.

      But I’m glad that you and others were able to bring yourselves to formulate a response in a manner that brings into sharp focus
      the empty nastiness of his words.
