Print | This National Election is Truly Significant
Post Letter to the Editor - Nov 01 2016
by Post Editor : letters@portervillepost.com

Dear Editor, Generally, I am a quiet, rarely out-spoken individual but this national election is truly significant. I seriously doubt that I have clout to persuade any other voter but it is worth a try.

Early on, in the last presidential election, I decided that I wanted Newt Gingrich for my candidate, for he had already had experience, twice, in balancing the budget. He had served in Washington; therefore, knew what the pressures, private-interest groups might be, and still was willing to carry the responsibility. With his background in American history, he could have well-served these past four years.

It was not until Newt threw in the towel and endorsed/supported Romney that I also went that way; however, I never felt Romney would win, as I did not feel that he really represented mainstream America. True, Newt had previously been married, but he had an amicable relationship with the first wife; and their two beautiful daughters admired and respected their father. I still do not understand why so many turned thumbs, down, regarding Newt as a worthy candidate.

Everyone with an open eye, a reading, absorbing mind, and a clear set of American, moral values has observed the downward trend of our economic status, the lax foreign affairs, and the decreased military status as well as negative moral decay within the last eight years. When, Trump announced before the last election that he might run, I had HOPE, hope that someone could pull our country, upward from the clogged economy, foreign policy, decreased military status, and the moral trend downward. Then, he chose not to be a candidate.

However, this time around, Trump announced, again, that, possibly, because he had such love and loyalty to our country, he might run again. When I found out that he would campaign with his own financial backing, he became my candidate. Yes, we had some good men at the beginning, more than in a long time; but I felt their being funded by outside interests also suggested the candidate would be beholden, as usual, to those interests and life would continue in Washington, much as it had. I had thought when Boehner came on board in Washington, there might have been changes: no such momentum. Whydid he suddenly retire? Never read a real answer.

Then, Trump, I decided had become well known;{at least, his name had been well-known among the public from his television show} so, people would not ask, who is he? Also, Trump is a successful business man and he would seek the most knowledgeable, most capable assistants to advise and head entities within the framework of government. I remember as a retired educator that when Ronald Reagan ran, some students would say, "But, Mrs. Mead, he is just an old movie star." True, he was; but what a great president he proved to be!

Trump thinks on his feet; he uses no teleprompters. He is a man of integrity; devoted to all his family, believes in investing in people. I remember his remark, "We can survive an Obama; it is the people who put him there that are a concern to me." I understand that statement totally. My mother who was a registered Democrat her entire life but, she voted for the candidate, not always her party, would say, "The Democrats spend and put us into debt; then, the Republicans pull us out of debt." And, she remained Democrat her entire ninety years!

When I was in college, idealisticas youth, I saw what the Democrats had done duringThe Depression, creating WPA, CCC camps, and all the programs which helped me to think I would register as a Democrat until I graduated from college, had my first teaching job, received my first pay check and saw those taxes illumined before me. Iquickly decided we cannot pay forALL those programs. Other people need to work and earn a living.

My mother and father separated and divorcedwhen I was very young. My mother was the breadwinner. She never took commodities. She had personal pride.She gardened, canned vegetables and fruits; kept a cow for milk; chickens for eggs and sold the calf each year. If we did not have money for something, we did without. She sewed most of our clothes but we held our head high and knew within that we were proud citizens of this country. I am thankful for the values my mother instilled into me, the personal discipline of her life inproviding for us, and the example she was in her life.

John Adams in TheArticles of Confederation emphasized the need for a strong military defense. This, currently,in size, is far too low now, not current with the powers of the world as we know it.

Why were the Four and Five Star Generals, one by one, terminated for lack of authentic reasons? General Petraeus could have and was leading the European troops. He was an out front leader, not sending the ranks there without his leadership.

I liked the last sentence in an e-mail that I have sent to The Post. I like what Trump says better than what HRC chose to do.

Who will become the next two or more Supreme Court Judges? Please take time to look at who has been appointed and one by one the laws that are changing that are not based upon our Democracy.

Also, look at the failure of Obamacare. I do not see medical offices in our town that are accepting insurance from that. We surely do not want Socialized Medicine. For decades, Canadians have crossed the border and immigration into the States for medical care and surgeries.

I grew up believing that politics and religion are two topics we do not discuss. All people have the right to choose their value/belief system. We still do at this point; but lets continue to protect these rights as we have had them.

We want an honest vote, not voting multiple ballots, not voting the deceased, not voting un-registered people. People who know me will know that it took genuine courage to put my thought life out for publication; and, were this election not so significant to our country; I still would not have done so. Hopefully, may each reader have also read The Enquirer and the Wall Street Journal last week to enlighten truths that have long been disclosed.

Finally, including an e-mail from a childhood friend which summarizes information to be reviewed with an open mind.

The following is the e-mail ... Here is her answer:

Because I use my head to research and find out what candidates really are, not what the media wants me to think.

Because Donald Trump has more women in executive and managerial positions than any comparable company, which tells me he is not a misogynist.

Because he pays these women the same or more than their male counterparts, which tells me looks for capacity and skills in people, not color, gender or race.

Because he fought the West Palm Beach City Council to be able to open his newly purchased club, so he could include blacks and Jews as members, who had been banned until then. This tells me he is not a racist.

Because he has raised wonderful children who have turned out to be outstanding, hard-working and compassionate adults. He must be doing something right.

Because his economic plans makes sense, are conservative in nature, and I vote based of what is best for my family, my friends and my country.

Because everybody, the left and the right are afraid of him, the media is trying to destroy his image, and even foreign governments are voicing their opinions, so he must be doing something right. Clean house maybe?

Because I want a Supreme Court that will uphold the Constitution, not behave as minions of the administration. I have had enough with judges who are more like political activists than law enforcers.

Because I fear for my familys safety if the current trend of not confronting blatant terrorism continues which is a threat to our way of life.

Because I am fed up with the rampant corruption of this administration. Accountability in government is paramount, and as this administration has demonstrated, it is a foreign concept to them.

Because I am fed up with the political correctness gone wild, and because Trump is not afraid to say what everybody thinks but does not dare to say. A thug is a thug, regardless of color, and that's it.

Because it is about time someone puts America's interests ahead of other countries.

Because I know he recognizes and embraces America's exceptionalism, and will not tour the World, apologizing for who we are. That tells me he is a patriot.

Because, unlike HRC, he has actually held a job, worked hard and achieved success.

And last, but not least, because I am more offended by what Hillary does than by what Trump says.

Sincerely yours, Glenda S. Mead From Porterville, CA.
