Letter: My endorsement


The Oct. 11 headline states the Quad-City Times is endorsing Joe Biden for president of the United States. I'm pretty sure this headline was written and archived in 2016 and dusted off to be posted three weeks before the election. Because that is how liberal newspapers and news outlets operate.

The relentless tirade against the sitting president of the United States has been going on since that January day when President Trump took the oath of office. I would like you to notice that unlike previous presidents (Clinton, Bush, Obama) you do not see a tell-tale aging or wear and tear on the face or hairs of this president. He is unflappable and can take anything that the liberal mob throws at him and still maintain the will to do what is best for the American people, the people that put their trust in him in 2016 and, hopefully, will not be swayed by newspapers and news outlets and will give him the opportunity to continue to serve for four more years.

As the U.S. traverses through the pandemic, threats of violence from abroad and from within (anarchy) and all the other malarkey that comes from the liberal leaders of disgrace and the rest of the Democratic cronies who are hell bent on destroying the presidency and this country, I say I want the team that has kept us afloat through it all.

So to the Times, that is my endorsement and I pray that my vote cancels your endorsement soundly.

The White House recently threw Gov. Kim Reynolds under the bus regarding Iowa's response to COVID-19. She was criticized for her policies contributing to needless deaths, and skyrocketing positivity rates, some of the highest in the nation. So much for putting faith in Iowans making the right decisions. Who is really calling the shots in Iowa?

I doubt I am the only one who is exhausted by the financial and political corruption of the current Republican Party. As the saying goes, I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. Given what they did to block Merrick Garland’s nomination four years ago, the current Supreme Court nomination process in Washington is so cynical that Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham aren’t even trying to cover up their hypocrisy.

The Quad-City Times' endorsement of Rep. Cheri Bustos states, "We are disappointed that, when we spoke with her, Bustos was somewhat evasive when confronted with certain issues." Bustos, you say, talked of support for an "ambitious" climate change plan but "we got little idea, despite our probing, what that might mean."

Donald Trump’s most often repeated claim in his reelection campaign is that he’s been a great job creator. To hear him talk, you’d think that job creation skyrocketed after he became president.

The best measure of human misery caused by the pandemic is the ratio of deaths to population. If we had the same ratio as Germany, we would have about 41,000 deaths; France, 167,000; if measured against Canada, it would be 87,000. Instead, we have over 225,000 and rising.

The Illinois ballot this year contains a proposition for Rock Island County that reads, "Should the Illinois General Assembly protect a citizen's right to keep and bear arms as defined by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution?"

Synonyms for fair are impartial and equitable. The proposed “fair” tax is neither of those things, nor is it fair. The only fair tax is that everyone pays the exact same percentage, which is what is in the Illinois Constitution presently.

When The Dispatch-Argus, or any newspaper for that matter, endorses a candidate for president, is it the owner of the paper, one member of the editorial board, or all of them? In any case, who cares who four or five people like? Is their endorsement supposed to sway undecided voters or change the minds of those already committed to a particular candidate?

Anyone who wonders why so many among the very rich have traditionally supported communism while the working class has not should take a careful look at the cozy relationship of Colin Kaepernick and Nike, all made possible by the Chinese Communist Party. Nike reportedly generated $3 billion after pulling its Air Max 1 USA sneakers with its Betsy Ross flag design because Kaepernick said the flag was from an era of slavery. Instead of taking a financial hit, Nike stock shares soared. "What I am beginning to learn about Nike," said Kevin O'Leary of Shark Tank fame, "they know how to take controversy and blow it up into advertising".
