Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

During my life, I have witnessed the extinction of two mammalian species: Liberal Republicans and Conservative Democrats. These formally coexisted and did their legislative jobs. No mas.

There is a sign over the entrance to the general store in Study Butte that says: This is the place where brilliant minds assemble to willfully pool ignorance with questionable logic in order to reach absurd conclusions. Every entrance to the U.S. Capitol needs one of these.

Let’s look at the Democrat candidates for Nov. 20. Bernie is a communist and wants to rid the world of American imperialism. Warren is running out of groups she can pander to and would bankrupt us if elected. Buttigieg’s qualifications are only that he is bright and gay and has no experience. Biden is not a bad guy but has been dragged so far left that he couldn’t find the political center with a GPS. He is also one TIA(transient ischemic attack) away from lala land. The Episcopal Book of Common Prayer has a Litany section where the congregation response to questions is “Good Lord deliver us.” Americans should learn this response for use this fall.

Mr. Thompson, I would just say that anyone of the candidates you mentioned would recognize the power of Congress and the need to work with them (us) in good faith to form a more perfect union. We certainly do not have that with this president’s divisive tendencies and his one way aspirations...”Good Lord deliver us”....Glen Ullman

I hate Bernie as much as the next guy, but claiming he's a communist is just...dumb. It torpedos your entire point, since you can't be bothered to accurately assess someone's positions. He's got enough issues without slandering him.

Janice, I hate to publicly admit such abysmal ignorance, but I'm unaware of any credible Republican candidates for POTUS in 2020. Isn't the general assumption that Trump is running unopposed by other Republicans?

Glen or Janice Ullman

Mr. Thompson, you failed to label the Republican candidates. I noticed you have the Fox Talk Show talking points on Democrats. You might want to check other media sources to broaden your knowledge of facts.

Janice Ullman

And on the other side we have a president that has been impeached but he won’t be convicted because they are not 20 principal Republicans in the Senate.
