Taiwan good for U.S. economy

The U.S.-Taiwan relationship is very interlocked. For example, more than 600 Taiwanese companies have operations in the United States, which annually creates 500,000 U.S. jobs through trade and investment ("Bringing back 'stolen' jobs," Web, Aug. 15).

Bannon fitting pick for Trump

I greet the appointment of Breitbart News' Stephen K. Bannon to head the Trump presidential campaign as a positive development ("Stephen Bannon poised to do battle for Donald Trump," web, Aug. 17. Mr. Bannon has made his name as a radical, extremist bully, one who slashes and burns in an effort to drive home his distasteful ideology. Mr. Bannon's mark on the Trump campaign will be immediately evident to thoughtful, informed, intelligent voters.

Take a page from 'Mayflower'

In his book "Mayflower" Nathaniel Philbrick describes how the Pilgrims and Native Americans lived and worked together, in harmony, for 50 years after the landing at Plymouth in 1620. A generation later, however, through unfortunate isolated incidences, growing suspicions and misunderstandings, King Philip's War erupted. This horrendous period resulted in catastrophic loses to both the English settler and Indian communities. Instead of working together as Americans, they became separated based on racial divide.

No business being president

Hillary Clinton, never having run a real business, has not learned that businesses don't pay taxes. Customers of businesses pay the taxes on business ("Hillary Clinton: Nowhere girl," Web, Aug. 14). It's surprising that Mr. Moore overlooked Mrs. Clinton's ignorance of such a basic business principle.

'Experts' wrong on Trump

I certainly hope the 50 so-called security "experts" who signed a recent anti-Trump letter, as well any other Republicans who refuse to support Donald Trump for the presidency, are labeled what they are — RHINOS — and issued their marching orders from the party forthwith ("Anti-Trump letter reveals jittery band of GOP establishment power brokers," Aug. 14). I agree totally with Mr. Trump that these are the people who participated in and contributed to the total mess now existing in the Middle East.

The enemy within

Every significant action and decision made by President Obama and his secretaries have been made in favor of Islamists. Case in point: The withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq, which created a disastrous vacuum for Islamists to occupy.

Trump a tax genius?

After releasing her tax returns and saying that she and her husband had paid a 30-percent tax rate, Hillary Clinton tweeted, "Here's a pretty incredible fact: There is a nonzero chance that Donald Trump isn't paying *any* taxes."

Marine's discharge an outrage

It is fortunate that the Marine Corps was able to recognize Cpl. Monifa Sterling's workstation placards for what they actually were: a threat to discipline and good order ("Military court upholds Marine's bad conduct discharge over Bible verses," Web, Aug. 11). Cpl. Sterling could not be permitted to express her faith in such a blatant manner, and was apparently deemed unworthy of a modicum of common decency and consideration on the part of her supervisor.

Trump dangerous for America

There is an urgency facing this nation: Donald Trump is the Republican presidential nominee, but certain Republican leaders have failed to step up to the plate and address Mr. Trump and his followers. Republican leaders such as Sen. John McCain and House Speaker Paul Ryan are putting their love of power before country. And it's a shame, considering that they both clearly love America.

Better of two choices

American citizens should vote for Donald Trump. It's pretty clear that the Republican establishment is going all out against him. They're throwing the kitchen sink — and anything else they can grab — at him. They're attacking him, discrediting him and accusing him of all sorts of malfeasance. They're deliberately trying to turn the public against him.

Who's unfit for leadership?

So 50 Republican officials think Donald Trump is not fit to be president. I didn't see a letter from them regarding Hillary Clinton's and Barack Obama's fitness, so I presume these lofty, high-minded civil servants believe both of those folks are just fine.
