To The Editor:
I got it, you don’t like him! You’ve indicated repeatedly you would never support him, utterly hated and despised him and have wished him failure with every attempt he made to lead. How special of you.
Consider a fact many refuse to accept. As an independent, I voted for Trump with great reservations. And my problem was what other choice did I have? What were the options?
I’ll agree as a personality Trump is a good example of the south end of a horse going north. I wouldn’t want to sit down with him for a cup of coffee. I won’t be sending him a Christmas card or invite him to a family gathering. But we had to vote for somebody!
The fact is the platform Trump represented was far more palatable than the Democratic policies we’ll now face. Does this nation have the desire for a fiscally irresponsible, progressive, socialist agenda taking away our constitutional rights and economic freedom, while defunding the police, and destroying our social fabric? Really?
You get what you vote for and many of you voted for this. It’s going to be an interesting ride.
