Letter to the editor: Trump is the president we need

Some dislike President Trump’s abrasive style and long for the days of Mitt Romney and the Bushes, when Republican candidates respectfully faced unfair and relentless attacks from Democrats without fighting back.

Over the past 60 years, Democrats have befuddled Republicans with aggressive tactics invented by Chicago activist Saul Alinsky in his book “Rules for Radicals,” where he defined aggressive confrontation and intimidation tactics to shut down conservative opposition or to force businesses to meet their outrageous demands.

Republican leaders have politely taken insults, lies and intimidation from rude and aggressive opponents and protesters without pushing back. As a result, the radical left, which is in the minority, has imposed on the rest of us outrageous regulations, taxes, unfair guilt and unwanted cultural changes.

The reason our borders are out of control, so much money is being spent on climate change, hordes of homeless are infesting our major cities, and historic statues are being torn down is because we the majority have cowardly caved to the brazen intimidators from the left.

Although Trump’s style is sometimes not pretty, his behavior effectively counters the hostile tactics of the radical left which have thwarted Republican leaders of the past.

Trump is indeed the man for our time, doing what needs done.

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.
