Letter to the editor: Democrat votes for family values

The Democratic/socialist debates were the same old soup just warmed over. All basically promise the same thing: give-aways, higher taxes and gun confiscation. I don’t need free college, loan forgiveness, Medicare for all or a $15 minimum wage.

I was born in a Democrat family and grew up in a Democrat town, Arnold, where the main attraction is Roosevelt Park, named after President F.D. Roosevelt. I am a registered Democrat for one reason only: I vote. With Pennsylvania’s closed primary elections, I would miss this opportunity if I wasn’t registered.

Republicans in our town are as scarce as hens’ teeth. Registering and voting are two separate items. I vote family values and will never knowingly vote for a politician who promotes abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, open borders or mob rule. I think every mentally stable person has the right to own a gun. Schools should offer gun-training classes to teach proper use, just as they do drivers’ education. I support the Nation Rifle Association and think it is an aid to our country.

I handle criticism fairly well, and name-calling from Hillary Clinton voters won’t change my opinion. You have your thoughts; I have mine and will vote accordingly. I still think Trump is the best president since Ronald Reagan. Those talking impeachment should remember that Bill Clinton was impeached but never removed from office. Do you really believe that you can impeach Trump?

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
