Letter: Majority of Americans are good and decent people

Editor:

The office of the President of the United States should be respected. That’s precisely the reason why many of us boycotted the inauguration. Trump does not represent the values we hold in this already great nation.

With the women’s marches across every continent this is quite evident. And, speaking of women - any man who did not stand up for your mother, your wife, daughter or granddaughter with your Trump vote, shame on you.

Any woman who wouldn’t even stand up for yourself, how in the world do you face yourself in the mirror!

Trump’s foreign policy is dangerous. His latest rhetoric about China has them furious. Their foreign minister has made it clear that there will be no negotiations. If Trump gets us into a war we won’t need to worry about the wall, jobs or healthcare.

Trump’s gag orders and dictatorship won’t be tolerated for long. His repression of our constitution’s 1st amendment and our freedoms will be costly to him.

Lastly, to our foreign allies, friends and neighbors, although Trump is representative of “The Ugly American,” the majority of us are good and decent people. Please don’t judge us by him.

Eventually he will do or say something that will be unacceptable to even his most devout cultists. Probably something that affects their bank balances and stock portfolios. When his ordinary- not wealthy- supporters find they can only afford the most basic necessities, and his wealthy megadonors suffer loss of profits, the cost of this guy's shortsighted and hateful policies will hit home.

Less than 10 possible TERRORISTS are 'inconvenienced' at international airports, until they are vetted and the leftist liberals are chanting their slogans...'down with America'. The relevancy of the constitutional right to protest is soon forgotten by these so called 'justice' Democrats when Republicans claim the same rights. How quickly the 3000 that were ground to an unrecognizable pile of flesh at the WTC on 9/11 are forgotten; how quickly signs posted at the WTC 'wailing wall' pleading for help to find their fathers, husbands and wives is forgotten; how quickly the Boston bombings are forgotten; how quickly the 12 murdered in San Bernandino are forgotten; how quickly the 12 serviceman in Fort Hood are forgotten; how quickly the 50 young party goers, slaughtered in Orlando, are forgotten; how quickly the ambush on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on July 16, 2015 (Four Marines died on the spot.) is forgotten; how quickly the men murdered in Benghazi, because Hillary ignored their pleas, are forgotten. President Trump defied those that surrendered to tyranny in the name of diversity and sought to protect the majority of good Americans. The media has surrendered to the masters of hypocrisy.

Two points: 1) Why don't you stop blaming Dems in general (or protesters) for the stupid and sometimes violent acts of a few, and we'll try not to blame all Trump supports for the many American Muslims who have been assaulted and the mosques that have been defaced and/or burned down. How dare you accuse us of having forgotten 9/11! 2) Not one citizen of or immigrant from the banned countries has participated in an act of terrorism on American soil. On the other hand the Saudis are guilty of plenty, but then Trump has business dealings with them.

1-"Why don't you stop blaming Dems in general (or protesters) for the stupid and sometimes violent acts of a few, " A few?? Forget already? 2- "Not one citizen of or immigrant from the banned countries has participated in an act of terrorism on American soil." Most of the Syrian refugees are not Syrian. Do to the limitation on words I would have included the atrocities, rapes and slaughter of French, German and Belgian innocent civilians. Forget about them already?

It's a waste of time to argue with people like Lonecowboy. You can't reason with unreasonable. You can't argue with those who live in a bubble or those who choose to not believe verified facts. You can't convince the narrow minded.

Thanks for the tip. I see what you mean. He seems to be full of hate, and he takes no responsibility for the vile acts by his side of the political spectrum while throwing specious arguments against the wall to see what'll stick. I'd just be happy if all of us could disavow the unacceptable acts of both sides. All Dems aren't rioters, and all Reps aren't mosque burners.

Yep. When someone gets all their news from Pravda, oops I mean Breitbart, it's just impossible.

Unreasonable? The WTC massacre is a myth. The massacre in Orlando was fictitious. There are no terrorists. Only nastywomen2 can tell the difference between a terrorists and a peaceful immigrant. Are those the verified facts you are writing about? Verify these facts: Atrocities, rapes and slaughter of French, German and Belgian innocent civilians. Forget about them already?

Has the country lost its' will to defend itself? No! It has lost its' ability to defend itself. The temporarily ban on visas from countries with verified terrorist activity was placed by those that are playing with American lives to spread warped ideology and for personnel gain. They hide behind notoriety expecting protection from foreign intervention and civil unrest by the military and civilian authorities all the while diminishing the resolve of Americans to unite under a common flag. They are wrong. President Trump made the statement..."You think our country is so innocent....... There are a lot of killers around." We lost in Korea (Truman capitulated to the North Koreans); Vietnam, ( Johnson could't fight a war in the jungles of Vietnam) and sacrificed our military, fighting without positive results, in Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Syria. Thousands of Airman, Sailors and Marines are still suffering from these foreign wars. Banning the sovereign rights of the United States and ignoring our borders is the same as surrendering. Do you think you can hide from war behind rhetoric?

Has the country lost its' will to defend itself? No! It has lost its' ability to defend itself. The executive order temporarily cancelling visas from countries with verified terrorist activity was maliciously vacated by those that are playing with American lives to spread warped ideology and for personnel gain. They hide behind notoriety expecting protection from foreign intervention and civil unrest by the military and civilian authorities all the while diminishing the resolve of Americans to unite under a common flag. Naivete will not spare them. President Trump made the statement..."You think our country is so innocent....... There are a lot of killers around." We lost in Korea (Truman capitulated to the North Koreans); Vietnam, ( Johnson could't fight a war in the jungles of Vietnam) and sacrificed our military, fighting erroneously, in Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Syria. Thousands of Airman, Sailors and Marines are still suffering from these foreign wars. That is what the Establishment has wrought on the American public. Banning the sovereign rights of the United States and ignoring our borders is the same as surrendering.
