To the editor,

“A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.” George Bernard Shaw. (From the Senior Go-Getter)

“In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.” (Voltaire, 1764) (Also from the Senior Go-Getter)

The above remarks demonstrate what motivates the socialist wing of the current Democratic Party. Its members clearly plan to live as parasites for the rest of their lives with their snouts and both front feet firmly rooted in the public trough. Let’s look at how they plan to accomplish this.

First, get rid of Trump by obstructing every move he made to “Make America Great Again” and at the same time spread lies about his colluding with Putin against the Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s moves included asking European countries as well as Taiwan, and Japan to pay their fair share in their own defense against more powerful enemies such as the former Soviet Union. He cut income taxes. This proved a greater benefit to the 51% of the people who actually pay income taxes. He also removed the U.S. From the French global-warming conspiracy to implement carbon taxes on so-called polluting nations who produced what some self-appointed pollution czar considered excessive amounts of Carbon dioxide. He advocated and started building a wall between the the southern U.S. Border and Mexico to impede the crossing of several million illegal immigrants, not all of whom were Mexicans, but most of whom sought all the freebies listed by Nation in my last week’s letter.

Trump’s insistence that the above countries pay their fair share in their own defense is unquestionably reasonable. And, apart from the fact that there has been no global warming for the past 21 years, and that what occurred before that was almost exclusively due to well-known recurrent cycles of increasing and decreasing numbers of sun spots, and we are now headed into a periodic global cold cycle that will last approximately 33 years, Trump performed a sterling service by getting us out of the French global warming conspiracy.

By starting the wall he hindered possibly millions of illegal immigrants from Mexico, Central and even South America from entering this country and benefiting from all the free handouts promised by The Nation, and Hillary Clinton in my last week’s letter. More Points to Ponder 2

When alleged Deep-State special Prosecutor Mueller, after months of investigation, could find no evidence of Trump or his aides colluding with Putin or Russia to disqualify Hillary, the mainstream media nevertheless continued its unrelenting drumbeat accusing him of doing so.

This leaves no doubt as to what their dedication to truth is, or which political side they identify with.
