Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

If Trump wins the 2020 presidential election, several things need to happen soon afterward. The opposing party must finally accept loss. Verbal abuse must end from each. Leaks in Washington must stop. Trust includes the endless and mindless pursuit impeachment. Trump must invite and encourage the Democrats to contribute ideas once that pursuit quits being their main and foremost reason for their existence.

I believe if the Democratic candidate prevails, their diverse in party spectrum will be their greatest challenge to solve. Their hope to success lies in a quick and quiet cohesiveness in the party.

In my opinion, taxing the super wealthy or targeting any one group would be a mistake. If the super wealthy individual and companies are targeted, these folks are masters at moving wealth and assets to avoid this unfairness. Industry and growth are essential to America and it must flourish. The super rich help drive America’s economy. Don’t drive them to seek loopholes and foreign investments thus depriving the government of valuable tax money.

We must move beyond these fruitless times. Good decisions, luck, timing and intelligence allows some to rise above others in all aspects of life. These traits also define nations.

Donald Cook, Port Lavaca

Fruitless times? According to the Don things are the best they have ever been. He is the one and only, that can fix everything. He doesn’t need any direction or authorization from Congress or any of the institutions. His name is in giant gold letters atop his monoliths around the world. He is the one. Plenty of fruit everywhere, just ask him..... Glen Ullman

You missed the idea of the letter, probably on purpose.

Another viewpoint from the RW side thinking Democrats is a single-issue party(impeachment). Democrats have passed ~400 bills that Mitch McConnell won’t submit for a vote.

The best thing about the Democratic Party is their inclusiveness aka diversity. We will never be a monolithic party.

Same old message from the right, leave the wealthy alone; haven’t you heard of “trickle-down” economics. Sorry, but I don’t go to bed worrying about the wealthy.

Btw, you put too much hope in Donald Trump. Just today Trump was fined $2 million for misuse of his charity foundation. I’ve known of him since the 80s,he’s not
