Letter to the Editor: Republican Seeking Reasons to Reelect Trump

As a lifelong Republican, I’m still looking for some valid arguments in favor of reelecting President Trump. Please, someone make the case so that we can have a civil discussion about the most important decision I have to make in my lifetime.

I’m not a Democrat. I don’t believe in the party’s progressive agenda, tax-and-spend policies or divisive identity politics. However, I can tolerate all of that better than the current damage so willingly inflicted on our country, our national security, our health and our institutions by Trump and his followers.

Joe Biden has his flaws just like the rest of us, but he has demonstrated his competence through decades of public service, a willingness to uphold the Constitution and the rule of law, and the basic human decency and civility I look for in any leader.

I’m more confident in a future with Joe Biden than four more years of incompetence, chaos, corruption and hate-mongering by the current administration.
