To the editor,

This is a response to the letter published Friday, Oct. 16, 2020 “The Presidential choice is easy”

II Chronicles 7:14 says: “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Four years ago, our country voted in Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America. He isn’t a politician. He’s a successful businessman who loves our country. He’s a patriot who saw the corruption and the path our country was headed down. He had a past and needed forgiveness, but so do we. He risked having his past exposed but was willing to take that risk.

He loved our country so much that he left his billionaire lifestyle to enter Washington politics in hopes of “cleaning the swamp,” but the swamp goes much deeper than anyone can imagine.

In the past four years the Democrats and some Republicans could not accept the people’s choice and tried relentlessly to remove Trump from office. Three years and millions of dollars spent on the Mueller, Russian investigation proved nothing. They tried to impeach him over a phone call to the Ukraine.

The biased media hammered him daily with lies and false accusations. In spite of all this, he continued to lead our country. He brought God back into the White House and continues trying to return God to our schools. He supports religious freedom and the sanctity of life. He upholds the Judeo-Christian principles and values our country was founded on.

He’s building a wall to protect our borders from illegal immigrants and is attempting to stop the sex trafficking of women and children. He is pro life, pro religious freedom, pro second amendment and pro freedom of speech.

Under his leadership, we have the greatest economy in history and the strongest military. He lowered taxes, brought back our industries, defeated ISIS, brought back American prisoners from hostile countries (and paid them nothing). Baghdadi and Saleimain were killed and he’s brought our precious military back from the endless Iraqi and Afghanistan War.

These are but a few of his amazing accomplishments, all while donating his pay to charities. The media and liberal democrats have done nothing but spend four years hating him and dividing our country.

He has been nominated for three Nobel Peace Prizes, having accomplished was said to be impossible — the Abraham Accords Peace Agreement (Sept. 15, 2020).

You don’t see Trump supporters burning down our cities, looting and killing people. President Trump supports our police and has offered assistance to all state governors and mayors to help calm the riots.

He worked tirelessly with doctors, scientists and manufacturers to slow the spread of COVID-19, offering non-stop assistance to all states.

I’ve only mentioned a small portion of what he has accomplished in the past four years. I feel these things and others could only have been accomplished with the help of God. He’s like David, facing Goliath each day. He never claimed to be a saint. He’s a sinner, as we all are. He’s also a businessman with courage and common sense who loves God, our country and its people. He’s a warrior who fights for our country against all odds.

Now, for Joe Biden. He is among the most corrupt politicians in Washington and has been for the past 47 years. I pray he and his family will finally be exposed and brought to justice.

If you want more corruption, lies and destruction of our country — if you want Socialism that will lead to Communism, you should vote for Biden and Harris.

If you want a president who loves our country and is willing to fight for it, you should vote for Donald Trump.

At this point, I have no idea whether to laugh or feel pity for those who still believe anything that trump says or does. What is even funnier is that the author of this opinion piece decided to rationalize their support of trump by invoking the bible. Trump is an adulterous liar who does the exact opposite of what the bible teaches. For the author to claim any shred of faith and then turn around to support trump could only be the biggest slap in the face to other christians who actually practice what the bible preaches. I am not sure if the author remembers that trump’s demonstrable lies have contributed to over 200,000 deaths in this country. I really would love a straight answer on the author reconciles trump’s own words on grabbing women by their private areas. It is quite hypocritical to quote the bible and justify trump.

There is no way that trump would ever get my vote. Vote Biden. Hopefully, trump will end up in prison after he is voted out of office.

tRUMP lost the popular vote by over 3,000,000. BAN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE; BAN MINORITY RULE. He then created the hugest, biggest void between the haves and have-nots with the big tax breaks for the uber-wealthy, threatened governors with the witholding of federal funds, opened up oil leases in ANWR and off shore (except Florida), lied when he said he was giving soldiers a 10% pay raise (it was 2.5%), makes statements like: "Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away." Later that month, Trump tweeted that the virus was "very much under control in the USA.", disparages the heroic, late Senator John McCain with the statement, "I like heroes who weren't captured", calls out a Gold Star Family, the Khan's, saying Mrs. Khan "wasn't allowed to speak", went through cabinet members like they were sheep going to slaughter, several of whom are in jail, or should be, (remember Zinke's use of a charter flight to go to a fundraiser, at taxpayer expense?), and the corrupting of officials from coast to coast, including our own hiltun and his gross faux pas of a flying a tRUMP flag on my boat, while on my time. It will take Biden/Harris 8+ years to undo his harm, but they will prevail. BIDEN/HARRIS 2020, 2024, 2028 AND BEYOND.

This is a fine example of how that throughout history, Christians have been susceptible to both embracing and spewing political propaganda. Huge segments of Christianity were transformed into political machines, commandeered by political adherents for the purpose of administering all sorts of evils.   This ladies missive could not be further from the truth if it had been written by the Trump Campaign, "Under his leadership, we have the greatest economy in history and the strongest military. He lowered taxes, brought back our industries, defeated ISIS, brought back American prisoners from hostile countries (and paid them nothing). Baghdadi and Saleimain were killed and he’s brought our precious military back from the endless Iraqi and Afghanistan War."  these are absolute fabrications of reality.  Or how about her..." He worked tirelessly with doctors, scientists and manufacturers to slow the spread of COVID-19, offering non-stop assistance to all states."  these are but two hyperbolic statements, or complete fabrications, that are so egregious it would take hours to detail how misinformed she is, and it wouldn't matter anyway.  It's sad to see so many people with no actual understanding of the world in which they live.  I pray for them.

You cannot have a civil conversation with you people. People either think like you or you are trash or you get trashed. This is a disgusting and vile trait for a human being and someday this will come back and bite you in the butt. If you vote for Biden I will not hold it against you. If by any chance he does win, you have to live with the consequences like the rest of us.

Why would you hold it against anyone for voting for the greater good of society?

“You have to live with the consequences like the rest of us.” What a statement! This pretty much describes the last three and a half years. The majority of voters in this country had to suffer under trump. Just in case you forgot, he lost by over 3 million votes. I would say that we survived trumps presidency but even now that’s almost a lie. I will say almost all of us survived his presidency. Remember how he lied about the severity of the coronavirus and we now have over 220,000 Americans dead? Yes, anyone who lost a loved one, friend, colleague etc due to the poor management of the virus is still suffering the consequence of trump. A vote for trump is a vote against women, against people of color, against the LGBTQ+, and against socioeconomically disadvantaged people.

I will gladly “take the risk and live with the consequences” and proudly vote for biden and Harris. It will be amazing to have a competent pair running the country. I’m looking forward to my tax dollars not paying for a golf trip near every other week. I’m looking forward to not having to watch the news everyday single day to see what idiotic thing the president has said/done. I will be ecstatic when we have a president that doesn’t stoke the flames of racism. So, yes, I am looking forward to trump (hopefully) getting his rear handed to him at the polls. Go Biden!

"Civil conversation" what's that a conversation that agrees with your religious and emotional feelings ? These responses are intended and provide and enhance understanding of others positions. You might want to get used to the fact that a greater percentage of America doesn't agree with you. I don't know if you are Theresa or not but the statements: "He is among the most corrupt politicians in Washington and has been for the past 47 years. I pray he and his family will finally be exposed and brought to justice." And

"If you want more corruption, lies and destruction of our country — if you want Socialism that will lead to Communism, you should vote for Biden and Harris." mind numbingly feckless, judgmental and most importantly unsubstantiated. Save your sanctimony and put up some factual proof. That's America.
