Letter: Trump is right

{{featured_button_text}}

As a citizen of the United States, I cannot understand why we are putting up with the violence and destruction by people who claim they want fairness and reform. Is it fair to destroy businesses? Is it reform to tear down statues of people who are part of our history? Is it fair to target all law enforcement with hate and physical violence? Is there any logic to defunding the police in our cities? Banning books? We cannot erase history; we can only learn from it. Our leaders need to put an end to this insanity.

It’s ironic that abortion rights supporters in every city cried "unjust" and "unfair" when truly peaceful people stood across the street from their facilities and prayed and quietly protested the killing of unborn babies. Do "Baby Lives Matter?"

I believe in justice for all and fair and reasonable treatment by our law enforcement people. But I also believe that the good cops far outnumber bad cops. And why repay the evil done by some police officers with more evil? What kind of justice is that?

I am in agreement with President Trump sending in federal troops to cities that are being destroyed. Can you imagine living somewhere where rioters seem to be in control? This is fair? This is justice? The politicians who want the troops out seem to be more concerned in being politically correct. I challenge them to look out for the good of all your citizens. Keep them safe.

When capitalism is not working for the people, where do they turn? They need social programs, such as SNAP (food stamps), healthcare and housing programs. Also, public education, Medicare, Social Security and public transportation. All are forms of socialism.

Anyone who votes Republican has no right to complain about Washington’s inept response to the coronavirus. For the last 40 years, Republicans have argued that government can never be trusted to solve problems. When you ask people who despise government to run it, you can’t expect it to function well (or at all).

Kudos to the gentleman from Fulton on his letter the other day about how the Confederates were traitors, so why should we honor them. I would differ with him slightly on one point. He stated he considered the Americans in the Revolutionary War to be traitors as they too were rebelling against their government.

Deep faith in God played a major part in the founding of our country. Despite the faults of the founders and corruption in the institutions and systems that have been established in the last 250 years, America has brought more good to the world than any other in history.

I see in the published July 22 Davenport City Council minutes that a $30,000 payment was made to Melrose Pyrotechnics. Google tells me this entity is a fireworks display company in Kingsbury, Indiana.

The record needs to be set straight. The economic boom created by President Trump is a myth. It actually started long before he was the president of the United States. He didn't create it; he inherited it from President Obama.

Since when does a Viewpoint column become front page news? I believe this has happened twice recently with John Marx telling us about his disrespect for Governor J.B. Pritzker.

The devil is called the father of lies. It looks like Donald Trump is trying to replace the devil for that title. Since being elected with significant help from his Russian owner, Vladimir Putin, he has racked up more than 20,000 documented false statements, a great many at the "pants on fire" level. These lies actually led to the deaths of many citizens.
