A Letter To The Editor

THIS IS A LETTER TO THE EDITOR IN OUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER THAT WAS POSTED ON NOVEMBER 1ST. HOW COULD A MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL WRITE THIS AND WHY WAS MY RESPONSE TO IT NOT PRINTED UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION? FOR THE PAST WEEK THE ONLY THING PRINTED (99%) IS ANTI TRUMP) BECAUSE ELECTION IS TOMORROW. BELOW THE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE IS MY RESPONSE TO REV. LEES LETTER

America loses if GOP wins
Nov 1, 2018
I am a 75, almost 76, year old minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I am an African-American who grew up in the Jim Crow era in America.

I thought I had gotten used to the hatred, the mean looks and the prejudicial attitude but it appears to be getting worse since Donald Trump became president. If you don’t believe it, walk a mile in my color.

Donald Trump is more concerned about Donald Trump. His agenda is about me, my and I. He doesn’t really care bout his supporters. He is a con man and they are being flim-flammed. It’s really his wallet that he is concerned about.

A vote for the Republican Party is a vote for Donald Trump and a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for cuts in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, no health care insurance, new diseases caused by deregulation of everything that needs to be regulated to keep us safe, contaminated drinking water, pollution like you have never seen before, crumbling infrastructure, and no pre-existing conditions being covered.

This election is not a joke. If you really care about this country and democracy we all better take it seriously.

What is this president teaching our children? It’s okay to lie, it’s okay to be a big bully, it’s okay to disrespect women and little girls as long as you win. It doesn’t matter how you win. It doesn’t matter if the Republican Party uses corruptive tactics to suppress voter registration. If the Republicans win, America loses.

And for all you haters, you can’t take that hate to Heaven with you. God is Love. Think about it!

This letter is in response to Sarah Lee’s letter to the Star Democrat on Thursday. “How much easier it is to be critical than to be correct.” Therefore, to set the record straight, I wanted to address some of the criticism directed towards Trump. What has become worse since Donald Trump has become President? The hate is from the liberals and the Democrat party, not President Trump. They are the ones who are spreading the hate. Since you have brought religion into this you as a minister of the Gospel should recognize this and Call for the good. Why do you as a minister of the Gospel align yourself to a party that promotes just about everything the Bible Condemns? I do not have to walk a mile in your colour as you have stated. I have walked many a mile in my own colour which is white and I have had many a trouble in my lifetime. I was poor, bullied by others because of being poor and looked at as second class, but yet by God’s Grace I arose above that. There are many people like me that rose above the hate and the bullying. The hate is getting worse in this country but Donald Trump is not causing it. Donald Trump’s agenda is not about his self or his wallet. It is about the American people and what is right. He has done so much already for this country, while not taking a cent in pay. More people in this country and this includes the black people have gone back to work and unemployment is at an all-time low. The economy is thriving. There is an all-time high of black people joining the Republican Party. How can one blame Trump for our crumbling infrastructure when it has been there for many a year and our inner cities are crumbling not because of Trump but by the management of the elected officials who are in most cases are Democrats. And you say Trump is disrespecting women. You are wrong again. I would say any party or president that promotes men using the woman’s bathroom is by far disrespecting woman. You are right this election is no joke. A vote for President Trump is a vote for America. Hate comes in many forms and should never be tolerated in any form. You are right you cannot take hate to heaven with you. You also cannot stand with people that go against what the Bible teaches and expect to go to Heaven.

Democrats Lie And Mis-lead Again.

   There was an article in our local newspaper (The Star Democrat) on October 19, 2018, called (“Time for Plan B,”). The person who wrote the article stated that Senator McConnell who is a Republican indicates that the only way to cover the $1.5 trillion deficit created by the tax cut is to cut Medicare and Social Security. That statement is far from the truth and just another false statement to help the democrat cause.

First of all, at this point, it is not certain there will be a deficit as large as some of the Democrats say. But there again one lie is as good as the next This number or the estimated amount of deficit at best is speculation and a theory put forth by the Democrat Party for election purposes. Every day, as the election grows closer we see on liberal television stations many times during the day an advertisement run by Democrat State Senator Jennifer Wexton running against Barbara Comstock for U.S. Representative in Virginia that the Republicans are cutting Social Security and Medicare. This is a misleading statement which I would like to call an out and out lie! Something the Democrats are very good at.

It is misleading statements like this and others that have been reported by the Democrats as far back as 1992 when Ross Perot was running for president as an independent. The Democrats have worn this untrue comment about Social Security out long before now. Voters have seen through this kind of trickery already so they might want to get off of it.

The Washington Post reported the following this week

On Wednesday, McConnell told a group of reporters that he did not foresee an effort to cut Medicare and other programs under Trump, who has put Medicare and Social Security largely off limits. Trump himself said again in an Associated Press interview this week that “I’m not touching Social Security.”

But Democrats are telling voters that McConnell’s remarks signal plans for an all-out assault on the retirement and health care programs that millions of older and low-income Americans rely on. After Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation process and Republicans’ attempts to go on offence over what they’ve characterized as liberal “mob rule,” Democrats jumped at the chance to redirect the conversation.  It is this kind of behaviour by the Democrats that are going to assure them that they are going to come up very short on Nov. 6. I believe the public has had more than enough of this distorted reporting by both the Democrat politicians and the mainstream media. Both are truly a threat to our country and as far as I am concerned are evil and news is no news at all when it is lies. I fully expect that the Republicans will hold on to their lead in the House and pick up between 6 to 8 seats in the Senate. If the Democrats thought the 2016 election results were a shock, they are very apt to be extremely shocked on the morning of Nov. 7.
