Letter: Trashing Trump, Barr will not win Democrats the presidency

Now that Robert Mueller’s exhaustive two-year, $25+ million investigation of President Trump’s so-called collusion with Russia has proven to be a hoax, the frustrated Democrats have a new two-part strategy: Trash Trump by accusing him of a cover-up and threatening impeachment. Bash Attorney General Bill Barr by destroying his credibility and deflecting attention away from his investigation of the Democrats’ devious plot to keep Trump out of the White House.

It’s quite obvious that the Democrats haven’t accepted Trump as our president two-and-a-half years after he was duly elected. Instead of working with Trump and Republicans on behalf of the American people, the Democrats are obsessed with destroying a sitting president in spite of his many successes.

It’s true that President Trump doesn’t always have pleasing methods in fulfilling his promises, but it’s hard to argue with his pleasing results. Yet, the Democrats, aided mightily by the biased media, would rather waste time harassing Trump than doing the work of the people who elected them.

The hypocrisy is appalling. The Democrats were all in on Mueller’s probe of President Trump until it didn’t turn out the way they’d hoped. Now, the Democrats are against Barr investigating their plot to help crooked Hillary Clinton win the 2016 presidential election. And bless her excuse-making, sore loser heart, Hillary still doesn’t understand what happened.

Can you imagine how the Democrats would have reacted if the Republicans had tried to impeach President Obama? They would have been called racists and a lot more in spite of Obama’s scandal-plagued administration. Let’s see, there was the IRS, VA, NSA, TSA, Secret Service, Fast & Furious, Iran, Benghazi, Hillary-gate and, of course, the coup by the FBI, CIA and other departments to hurt Trump and help Hillary.

This Trump trashing and Barr bashing is going to backfire on the Democrats, who have an incredibly weak field of presidential candidates trying to defeat Trump in 2020. Moreover, most of these leftist loonies are supporting socialism, single-payer health care for all, free college education, higher taxes, gun control, open borders, abortion-on-demand, ICE abolishment, sanctuary cities/states and, yes, the elimination of “so help me God” in swearing-in ceremonies. Seriously, is this the horse they plan to ride to the finish line?

Conversely, President Trump is running on a booming free market economy thanks to tax cuts and massive regulatory reductions; huge job creation and the lowest unemployment rate in decades; health care competition; the second amendment; border security, including a big wall on our southern border; stricter abortion laws; loss of federal funds for sanctuary cities/states; religious liberty protection; stronger military and a tougher foreign affairs strategy; and 100% support of ICE and all first-responders, to name a few of his conservative initiatives.

The choice is clear. Vote for an out-of-touch liberal who will destroy our economy and the Judeo-Christian values America was founded upon. Or vote for a common sense conservative who has the guts to “drain the swamp” and put America first. Your vote matters in 2020.
