Editor: Mr. Glen Peterson’s Oct. 4 letter to the editor, “Not My Party,” does not describe the Republican Party I know. He claims today’s Democrat Party policies are preferable.
He must want open borders (no wall), but open borders with our welfare state will bust the budget and let in terrorists. He must want ICE abolished. He must be for gun control. He must want a collapsing economy.
Today’s Democratic leaders want the high taxes and stifling regulations that kept Obama’s economy tied up in knots. He must agree that certain Americans, like white conservative men, are guilty until proven innocent in a court of law or on campus. He must also be a globalist, where UN law will prevail over our beloved constitution that protects us from government overreach. He must prefer trade where we give away our money and technology in lopsided trade agreements. He must want Iran to build the bomb.
I guess Mr. Peterson hasn’t noticed the coarseness of Democrat activists marching in the streets and in the halls of Congress. He must, also, be for late-term abortion.
Change from Republican to Democrat? Not me.
