Dear Editor: It would be ideal if we the people can still vote for nice, decent candidates from either party who could represent our interests. Sadly, that time has long gone. If a Christian/Catholic, or Jewish person understands his/her religion, practices it and loves those same values that this country’s founding was based upon, I cannot fathom how one can vote for the Democratic Party. During the 2016 presidential primaries, I felt this gut-wrenching feeling of doom as my favorite candidate was eliminated and this obnoxious person emerged as winner.
A lifelong evangelical Christian friend and I discussed our options of moving to Canada but we realized that Canada’s progressivist politics has already taken them where we do not want to go and so, we held our noses and voted against the Clinton machinery. Hey, at least this guy loves America and he has the guts to say so!! And he will not force the Little Sisters, EWTN, Catholic Charities, Hobby Lobby, etc., to pay for birth control and abortions. Is that populist nationalism, and is it a bad thing for Americans? Did we likewise put a label on Obama politics? I don’t recall so.
