Letter: 2 bad options for President

To the Editor:

My first vote was in 1959. We had to be 21 then, 18 was still several years away. I have voted my choice for president 14 times.

I have usually had no problem making my choice. This year, I haven’t yet decided. I lean Republican but always try to keep an open mind and listen to the candidates spiels.

This election offers a choice between the two worst candidates I have ever had to choose from. I won’t consider a vote for the others on the ballot.

With Trump, I find a man whose views on immigration, taxes, law and order, trade, energy, judicial choices, are closely aligned with mine. However, his personality leaves a lot to be desired.

Every day brings another reason to reject him for his latest tweets and statements made while speaking at rallies. Falsehoods, exaggerations, errors, rude demeanor and lack of respect for those he disagrees with are some of the reasons to not like him.

His recent attack on Dr. Fauci is an example. And then there is Biden, a much more likeable guy, but bland. It is hard to tell if his age renders him suspect for the job because he is rarely asked tough questions by the fawning media.

Speaking of the media, I can understand their dislike of Trump, but they really should try to make Biden earn the job. The trouble with him is what he brings with him: a very left wing party.

There is a very liberal VP, AOC and the squad, Pelosi and Schumer, Warren and Sanders, anti-business laws and regulations, unrestricted immigration, and even bigger deficit spending than the Republicans.

The Democrats never saw a trillion dollar problem they couldn’t solve with $3 trillion. The Republican Party of most of my life would not have endorsed Trump for this office.

It has sadly changed since 2016. Likewise, the Democrat Party has moved so far left it is now hostile to anyone with a different point-of-view making compromise almost impossible. Heads or tails? Sad way to pick a president.
