Letter: Some points for people to consider

Published 9:08 pm Thursday, January 2, 2020

As 2020 dawns, we need to have all U.S. citizens consider the following.

The U.S. is a republic of limited government with power to the states and people (see the ninth and 10th amendments).

Areas like health, education and welfare should mainly be handled by the states.

Both states and the feds need tort reform to limit cost and litigation.

Migration policy is mainly a federal issue. We need to screen both temporary and other migrants to ensure all are screened and have responsible private sponsors to fully support them.

People worried about climate change need to realize that a growing U.S. permanent population is a serious problem in resource use and worsens critical U.S. housing needs and shows why people living in the country illegally need to be removed from the U.S.

Many in the U.S. are seeing liberal overseers as failing big cities populations as crime, corruptions, etc. are not being dealt with. New plans and leaders are needed. The old ways need changes in the big cities.

In the U.S., the well-off tend to marry each other and not have kids to their 30s. How can others postpone kids to their 30s? Persons critical of corporate profits miss that pension funds and IRAs, etc. are big stock owners. Corporations are collections of real persons!

In 2015, a corrupt Ukraine government dealt with U.S. officials whose major leader’s son got a $50,000-a-month job with no known experience. In 2019, a new reform Ukraine president took over and was he good? Our president (Trump) asked him to investigate past corruption and held aid til proof of real reform was proven and the past dealt with. Real diplomatic proper efforts and policy per our U.S. president’s plans.

Real bribery in the U.S. is when politicians for votes promise free health care, free daycare, free college using others money.

In 2020 we need to back persons at all levels who want to cut laws, regulations and spending and support individual liberty.

President Trump and our congressman, Jim Hagedorn, have shown the best in serving the U.S. and Jason Lewis as our potential U.S. senator-elect in 2020.
