Like tasting something that doesn’t agree with your palate, I had to pinch my nose shut to swallow the smelling diatribe of yet another distasteful, inaccurate, liberal Don Long column (Times-Advocate December 23), as I know so much of the TA’s readership must do.
The Democrats must come into office to clean up what the Republicans did? This is yet again another example of the Democrats bringing to life George Orwell’s Newspeak and re-rewriting of history that his prophetic writing so accurately foretold in “Nineteen Eighty-Four.” No wonder our children are intentionally misled and have no concept of reality and real history by the time they are finished with middle school.
Does anyone remember Jimmy Carter? The Democrat President that embarrassed the United States with the Iranian hostage crisis? What do you know, within the hour that Republican President Ronald Regan was sworn into office, our citizens were released. President Reagan also cleaned up the economy Carter left behind.
We had some of the lowest GNP and general economic growth under President Obama, not to speak of a weak, erratic foreign policy that included fear of war with North Korea. President Trump had the U.S. economy at an exponential rate of growth along with the lowest unemployment rate in 55 years before China attacked us with biological warfare.
President Trump had a straightforward, strong foreign policy that included stepping over the DMZ into North Korea and putting our minds at ease that there would not be war with that dictator while he was President. He decreased unnecessary, political regulations by taking us out of the Paris Climate Accord. The list goes on and on.
What do we have to look forward to under the Biden/Harris administration? A reversal of all the progress that was made, and we all know how the story will end: Biden will not make it through four years, and we will have someone in office that never would have made it on their own if they were at the top of the ticket.
