Letter: Explanations offered

Letter: Explanations offered


On April 23rd, Art Fanter wrote a letter titled, "Explanations, please". He wanted to know why "liberals" adopt so many positions "but never elaborate why". He says "they are fanatics" about abortion.

Women who find themselves pregnant may have their reasons to consider medical means to end it; it's their right to control over their bodies. A provider may also advise an adoption.

Families can plan when they have children, using pills or other means to do so. For instance, when their incomes are stabilized. This isn’t 'killing babies,' as Fanter put it. It’s planning to have them.

Liberals don’t hate firearms. We want our armed forces to have all the rifles, bazookas and planes they need. But the mothers on the south side of Chicago, which is a case in point, would rather not be on camera on the nightly news, hysterical over the murder of their sons.

Liberals don’t really love socialism. Share and share alike? Christ’s suggestion to care for the least of us? These are worthy thoughts, but no way to run a country? So what if it works for Sweden and Iceland?

Liberals don’t "love illegal invaders (immigrants) and using tax dollars to sustain them". They aren’t paid a salary. There are no "compounds where they remain predators on citizens/taxpayers". Where are these compounds?

Liberals don’t dislike energy generated by coal, petroleum, or natural gas. Our air, water, etc., used to be cleaner before the EPA was turned over to people like Scott Pruitt.

Explanation, offered.

I have known Bobby Schilling since he ran for Congress in Illinois' 17th District in 2010. He ran out of a strong sense of duty and with a patriotic calling to serve the people of Illinois. I helped on his campaign and was extremely happy with his service to the district during his two years in Congress.

Our local newspapers have always wanted us to believe they are politically neutral. They should be. However, with the constant barrage of anti-Trump political cartoons and the printing of endless columns from Trump-bashing columnists, it looks like the papers are leaning to the far left.

We have shut down our economy and spent trillions to service 5% of this country. Within a 100-mile radius of New York City, 60% of COVID-19 cases in the United States have occurred. Add the cases from New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, etc., and the west coast sanctuaries, and we find that almost all of the nation's cases are occurring in, or propagating from, Democrat-mismanaged areas.

In these troubled times and uncertainty, with so many people not working and our economy looking to take months or years to recover, maybe it's time for all of us to consider buying only American made products.
