The polls -- the same polls who predicted Hillary Clinton in the White House -- say President Donald Trump is going to lose. The people -- the packs and packs of people who have been turning out for his rallies in 2016-like masses -- suggest otherwise. Apparently, they've not gotten the message?
In less than one week, Americans will make a choice between two presidential candidates who couldn't be more starkly different ("Donald Trump for reelection," Editorial, Oct. 26). One supports an 'America-first' agenda to fortify our borders and stop illegal immigration; to stop bleeding American jobs, as well as technology and money to China (by addressing the massive trade deficit with this communist nation); and to maintain law and order. As a bonus, this candidate hasn't started any bogus, illegal and expensive foreign wars during his term in office, unlike many of his predecessors.
Restrictions on normal human activities have undoubtedly saved American lives that otherwise would have been lost to the deadly coronavirus. The all-hands-on-deck approach to fight the pandemic can be quantified in terms of the trillions of dollars spent, but there been other costs as well. Lives claimed as collateral damage in the battle have been given only secondary consideration. It's time to ponder whether it makes sense to rob Peter of life in order to save Paul.
I was conflicted whether or not to devote this column to a closing argument for President Trump. His success on the issues alone should be enough for the majority of Americans to excitedly vote him in for a second term.
