Letter: Polls predict any of Democratic candidates to win

Published 8:20 pm Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Did you watch the Democratic debate last week? Well, if you did and didn’t read, the polls predict that any one of those candidates would beat Trump if the vote was taken now. So it is up to the Democrats to lose the election next year by their own fault. It is hard to believe though that there is still 25% of the American people who believe Trump is going to build that wall on the Texas-Mexican border and is going to make Mexico pay for it. It is hard to believe there are so many weak-minded people in this country. They also say that 25% of the country still doesn’t believe Obama was born in Hawaii. They also think that taking modern-day machine guns away from the average Joe would be against the Second Amendment. They don’t understand that there are just as many Democrats who own firearms as there are Republicans. The Democrats have enough common sense to know they don’t have to worry about taking their firearm away from them unless it is a modern-day machine gun. Why would anyone want to own one of these firearms in the first place? The only thing I can think of is some little pip squeak  can show his buddies how he can maim or kill a hundred people within one minute, which makes him feel like a big man. Nobody needs a firearm that holds more that eight rounds at a time. If they didn’t get that deer, coyote, squirrel or rabbit with the first eight rounds, then they got away.      

If you ask a Trump supporter what it is they stand for and what Trump stands for, they can’t tell you. The answer you get is give that man a chance.   Trump supporters don’t want to talk politics because they don’t know what Trump’s next trick is going to be. Remember when the Republicans had their first debate? There were about 20 on that stage and Trump threatened not to show up unless they debated by his rules. This was the first indication that Trump was a wannabe dictator. I am still bragging. I didn’t vote for Trump.
