Letter to the editor: Next presidential pick will be easy

Boy, I’m glad the next presidential election is still far away because it’s going to be a very difficult decision for me.

On one hand, we have President Trump: booming economy; 4 million jobs added; record low unemployment, lowest ever for blacks and Hispanics; renegotiation of lopsided, detrimental trade agreements negotiated by wonderful, refined, gentlemanly and “presidential” past presidents; hostages returned without ransom; the end to nuclear weapon and missile testing by North Korea; the rebuilding of Obama’s weakened military; improved health care for veterans; happiness, optimism and love of country.

On the other hand, we have 30 or 40 Democrat clones: abortion on demand; socialism; gun control; opening borders with little effort to protect our citizens from disease and crime; education, health care, housing and welfare for immigrants but denied to many who pay for it; disdain for God, patriotism and Judeo-Christian people of faith; seething anger, pessimism, bitterness and criticism of our country.

Yeah, this is going to be a real difficult decision.

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.
