Whither goest the left?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - TOM TYSCHPER Gil­bert, Ari­zona

I’m a life­long in­de­pen­dent voter. I’ve voted for both Democrats and Repub­li­cans in my 53 years of vot­ing, but to­day’s Democrats con­cern me.

Their grow­ing sup­port for so­cial­ism, their fright­en­ing loose in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the right to life, and their un­will­ing­ness to sup­port any wall at our south­ern bor­der does lit­tle to con­vince me they have Amer­i­can-cit­i­zen safety as their pri­mary con­cern.

Their loss of di­rec­tion was fur­ther am­pli­fied by the use of an elec­tion loser as their spokesper­son af­ter Tues­day’s State of the Union ad­dress. Couldn’t they find a more con­vincng per­son?

I just don’t see a uni­fied di­rec­tion to their party. Yes, Pres­i­dent Trump has of­ten in­fu­ri­ated me.

But he has shown an im­pres­sive num­ber of pos­i­tive re­sults that grossly over­shadow any­thing we have seen since Bill Clin­ton left of­fice.

Given the choice be­tween Pres­i­dent Trump and any one of the many po­ten­tial Demo­cratic can­di­dates I see to­day, Mr. Trump would get my vote.
