Letter to the Editor: Deeds Speak Louder Than Words

To head off false accusations, I’m neither Democrat nor Republican. With that said, let’s break down some of the insanity in past letters.

Republicans say they are falsely accused of supporting violence. If the accusations are false, why are there so many videos (not to mention social-media posts) proving otherwise?

Republicans say they support free speech and religious liberty. Again, there are many videos showing people being attacked by your fellow Republicans for having a differing viewpoint.

Republicans say they want every law-abiding American to be able to vote. Is that why the Republican Party tried getting all mail-in/absentee ballots thrown out in an effort to rig the 2020 election? 

The Democrats say that if you cut back the supply of oil, gas prices will go up. The only way Biden could control gas prices (which also affects the others) is if refineries were nationalized. High gas prices are all on the oil companies and OPEC. Also, the Saudis bought one of our biggest refineries in 2017 – when Trump was president.

Democrats say that if you shut down 40% of the supply of baby formula in February, you’ll get a huge shortage. So you’re saying that contaminated formula should have been allowed to have been sold?

Republicans said that Biden, rather than uniting as promised, has given some of the most divisive speeches ever. Biden wasted 18 months trying to reason with MAGA Republicans, and they pretty much gave him the one-finger salute. He should have known better, as MAGA Republicans consistently prove they’re too far gone to be reasoned with.

The Republicans say that if people are tired of the divisiveness and gaslighting by the Democratic Party – stop right there. By blaming the deeds of Republicans on Democrats, you’ve proven to everyone how truly deranged you are.
