This is encouraging.
Also the New York Times (you know, “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”) recently printed letters from people explaining why they voted for Trump. Below are a few excerpts. To read all the letters go here.
Steven Sanabria of Oakdale, CA: “Donald Trump has succeeded where Barack Obama failed. Who knew that all it would take to make progress was vision, chutzpah and some testosterone?”
Jason Peck of Holtsville, NY: “I voted against Hillary Clinton more than I voted for Donald Trump. That said, President Trump has exceeded my wildest expectations.”
David MacNeil, Chatham, NJ: “I voted for Donald Trump and, considering the alternative, I would do so again. I would give him high marks for policies and programs that are stimulating the private sector, which, after all, pays the bills for the Democrats’ extravagant welfare programs. We desperately needed a seismic change in the pusillanimous foreign policy pursued during the Obama years, which emboldened our adversaries, including China, Russia, North Korea and Middle East militants. I also support a more robust approach to border security and illegal immigration, which could still entail legal residency for law-abiding Dreamers but not an undeserved pathway to citizenship. We are weary of the Democrats’ tiresome focus on identity politics, class warfare, and disparagement of corporations and the “wealthy.”
Ellen Mackler, New Haven CT: “Not only did I vote for him, but I also made more than 5,000 calls on his behalf (and I’ve been a registered Democrat for 40 years). So far I am thrilled with his performance.”
Dan Lorey, Cincinnati, OH: “A president like Donald Trump only appears every 100 years or so. His positive agenda can be boiled down to national security and economic growth. I am proud when I see the First Couple representing us on the world stage. Tens of millions of thoughtful, compassionate Americans agree with me.”
There are more of us than them!
