Letter to the editor: GOP, get behind Trump

Democratic leaders are urging Republican lawmakers to publicly air their displeasure with President Trump. I hope they are smarter than that.

There are three political parties in this country — the Democrats, the Republicans and the true conservatives. The conservatives vote for Republican candidates. However, too many Republican candidates are now RINOs (Republican in name only), or they are too cowardly to stand up to liberal pressure and will back down during a political fight.

True conservatives for 30 years have complained and were told this: “Hold your nose and vote for Republicans. Otherwise, Democrats win. We are changing.”

Finally a true conservative president is in the White House. Moderate Republicans attack him as much as the Democrats. I have a warning for these RINOs: Hold your nose and make Trump your 2020 presidential candidate. Otherwise, the Democrats will win. It’s your turn to be unhappy.

If Trump is not the Republican nominee in 2020, I will not vote. The conservatives will not stand with the Republicans. The Democrats won’t vote for your candidate. You will lose. I guarantee it.

I believe in Trump, but not the Republican Party.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
