Letter to the editor: True Democrats should revolt

I do not know what letter George O. Curry (“Democrats want balance,” March 27, TribLIVE) was reading, because I did not praise President Trump in my letter (“Not true Democrats,” March 13, TribLIVE). I did not call the Democrats socialists or communists. I did not even mention the Republican party.

I praised the Democratic Party for what it used to be and wrote about how my family loved the Democratic Party of Harry Truman. I did state the “socialists” who call themselves “Democrats” are motivated by their hatred of Trump. You are allowed to disagree with me, but only on what I write.

If you are a true Democrat, then heed my warning as I stated in my closing paragraph: The true Democrats have to revolt against this cancerous invasion and bring their party back to represent the people — or lose it to socialists.

As for where I stand with God, that is up to him to decide when he decides my fate. If you are over your hatred of our president and his party, please read my letter again and see how you have misinformed yourself. President Truman should be one of your heroes, not President Clinton.

May God bless you and yours and may God make America great again.

Rev. Tony Joseph

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.
