Letter to the editor: No reason to vote Democrat

All of the presidential politics letters seem to fall into two categories. They either praise President Trump and his accomplishments for our country, or they spew deep, seething rage, hatred and vicious name-calling at him and his supporters.

What seems to be missing is an endorsement of any Democrat and a reason to vote for him or her. I’m open minded and maybe I could be convinced if someone could give me a couple good reasons, other than just hating Trump.

I’ve seen letters from people stating that they are proud, lifelong Democrats. The Democratic Party is the antithesis of what it was when I belonged, so maybe these folks are just voting for anything with a “D” after its name, and they have no core values.

Another writer stated that he will always believe that the Russians were responsible for Trump’s election, even though more than three years of what I view as harassing and multimillion-dollar investigations have turned up little more than baseless accusations. Facts, truth and common sense apparently mean nothing to mindless folks such as these, and they certainly provide no good reason to vote Dem.

So other than hating Trump, why should I vote for a Democrat? Is it abortion on demand with no restrictions, socialism, open borders, the Green New Deal, antifa, and the eradication of God and patriotism from our society? How about a little help here?

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.
