So what kind of person am I?
In his letter to the editor of Jan. 4 (“He won the battle, but we’ll lose the war”), William Watts challenged Trump voters to answer, “What kind of a person are you?” I take that personally, and so I’ll tr y to explain to him what kind of a person voted for President-elect Donald Trump.
We’re the kind who wants to keep Americans working at American jobs.
We’re the kind who wants to see a smaller, more efficient, user-friendly, federal government.
We’re the kind who wants to welcome legal immigrants who pledge their allegiance to our flag — “And to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God ... ”
We’re the kind who is finally fed up with political correctness and its devastating effect on the younger generations.
We’re the kind who is tired of being overtaxed and over-regulated.
We’re the kind who had enough of the last eight years of scandals, political spin and lies.
We’re the kind who does not believe the major media, or their polls.
We’re the kind who is ashamed that our allies don’t trust us and our enemies don’t fear us.
We’re the kind who believes our children’s education should not be dictated by Washington bureaucrats.
We’re the kind who earned what we have and do not believe in participation trophies.
We’re the kind who understands the value of a strong national defense as the best deterrent to conflict.
We’re the kind who see protest mobs and know they are the product of modern liberalism and the bureaucratic state, not the product of Trump voters.
We’re the kind who respect the rights of all and know all lives matter.
We’re the ones who may disagree with you, but will defend to the end your right to be wrong.
We’re the ones who put faith, family and freedom above the mandates of an out-of-control government.
Finally, your fears of “paybacks” are truly unfounded, as we were not the ones vandalizing Hillar y Clinton signs, creating violence or paying for instigators to incite mob protests. No, we just answered with our vote. Jim Crawford, Bryantown
