Letter to the editor: Was Trump divine intervention?

We came together as a nation only after a ragtag militia made up of farmers, shopkeepers and the like defeated the greatest standing army in the world at the time. And men the likes of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Franklin and Adams, et al. were brought together at the same time in history to proclaim freedom and liberty for all. Was this divine intervention?

God has blessed America like no nation ever. Yet, there are those in power who hate everything about America. They say we are a racist nation, want to erase our nation’s history, do not believe America is an exceptional nation, want God out of our lives, and think rugged individualism is dead and that government must be the purveyor of everything to everyone.

Enter Donald Trump. No way he could be nominated as a presidential candidate. What were the odds he could win the presidency? His detractors proclaimed his candidacy a joke. A simple know-nothing political novice up against the powerful Clinton political machine — impossible, it will not happen. But it did. Was it divine intervention?

God will continue to bless America if we respect and obey his laws and 5,000 years of human tradition. We must end abortion, and those who represent us at all levels of government must not be guided by greed and an insatiable lust for power.

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.
