Letter writer: Thanks to Dems who support Trump agenda

“You cannot be civil with a political party (Republican) that wants to destroy what you stand for (Socialism), what you care about (the loss of power, money, and influence). Civility in America can only begin again if Democrats win back the House or Senate,” so says Hillary Clinton. So, are ordinary Democrats okay with harassing and hurting their political opponents, or are they too timid to put a stop to it?

Democrats recognize wealth is distributed unevenly and say you don’t get your share. They count on people whose health insurance is subsidized to vote against folk who’ll take it from them, yet with Medicare for All they’ll take away the insurance from the 80 percent who buy theirs because they’ll gain control of your healthcare which is 20 percent of our economy. They won’t build a wall to keep drugs and criminals out of our country because a wall keeps out illegal aliens who’ll vote for them.

Democrats slimed a decent man to keep him off the Supreme Court. They failed, so justices will no longer legislate from that bench, but Democrats can and are using federal courts to try to undo what they don’t like. The hoards coming to our border were enticed to come by them. Our Commander-in-Chief will keep them out while Democrats will go to court to bring them in.

Democrats say they’re for workers and the poor, yet their policies make it worse for them. When Obama was in office, good-paying jobs left the country, poverty grew and the middle class shrank. President Trump fosters independence by getting the poor off food stamps and into jobs and nourishes prosperity by bringing back manufacturing and mining and putting money into workers’ pockets.

President Trump is rebuilding our depleted military, and he tells allies to pay their share for defense. He’s putting our workers and companies first when making trade deals. He’s appointing judges who’ll interpret laws, not make them, and he’s opened our country to exploration, so we can find and use our resources.

President Trump wants to repeal and replace Obamacare, build a wall and fix our broken immigration system, drain the swamp of political corruption, and cut spending. I’m not a card-carrying member of any party, but if you’re unaffiliated or a disaffected Democrat who voted to support his agenda, thank you.
