Letter: Why Trump will win on Nov. 3

Why Trump will win on Nov. 3

To the Editor:

On a scale of win-no win for the Nov. 3 election, President Donald Trump wins a second term because the scale (and it is not the scale of justice) is unbalanced.

On the win side, you have a great economy (for the 1%, or estimated
3 million people out of 300 million), a war machine (which provides hundreds of thousands of jobs), a president who verbalizes the negativity that many Americans feel, and a lack of respect for the law and the Constitution.

Plus a $1 trillion tax cut that must be preserved. 

On the no-win side, you have proposed cuts to Medicare and Social Security, the degradation of our national parks and the environment, a neglect of quality education for our children in public schools, prison and immigration problems, the infrastructure, and a dismissal of global diplomacy in favor of dictators – all things that we cannot afford because of the trillion-dollar tax cut!

In the battle of money versus heart, it seems like money wins again Nov. 3.
