Responding to the Nov. 13 letter “So long, liberals”: I’m not an “anti-Trump protester, politician, media type, pollster or left-wing progressive.” I don’t have friends in Hollywood. That should make me part of the “balance of Americans” who voted for Donald Trump.
I didn’t and have trouble understanding many who did – military families (Trump’s denigration of John McCain and the Khans), those with Latino co-workers or neighbors (Trump’s bias accusation against a respected judge of Mexican heritage and his rapist/drug dealer comments regarding Mexican immigrants), those who know people with disabilities (Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter) or any female, or relative of a female, who dismissed Trump’s boastful groping of women.
In addition to the above, I didn’t vote for Trump because I don’t want Roe v. Wade overturned, Dodd-Frank rolled back, a U.S. pullout of the Paris Agreement or even the hint of quitting NATO. I don’t want an administration pushing an isolationist, restrictive, anti-immigrant, ally-alienating agenda.
I’m not moving to Mexico. I’m staying right here and making my voice heard, not the voice of the “balance of Americans” who voted for Trump, but the voice of the majority of voters (the popular vote) who did not vote for him.
