Reader’s Opinion on Election

By Staff | Oct 29, 2020

To the Editor:

It was nice to see a response to my last letter; in rural Iowa we can express our different views and still greet each other on the street with a friendly hello. Awesome place to live.

During the last debate, both candidates were talking over each other, and President Trump was definitely the worst of the two. President Trump isn’t a smooth politician and he is a little rough around the edges. But think about it, for three years he’s been accused of working with the Russians to undermine our last election because of a fake dossier. In reality, it was Hillary Clinton and the DNC who were working with the Russians. Then there was the Impeachment because of a phone call to Ukraine, financial dealings with Ukraine, China, and Russia. With all that going on, President Trump has still been able to get done what he promised when he was running for president. The latest example is nominating another conservative justice, Judge Amy Barrett.

As far as President Trump saying “don’t be afraid of COVID” and “we have good drugs to treat it” and “a vaccine is on the way,” I think we needed some positive news. Do you know we have a pandemic within the COVID pandemic? A survey shows 38% of people are depressed because of COVID, mental health hotlines are overwhelmed, drug abuse is up, divorces are up, domestic abuse is up, alcohol abuse is up, and more people are being exposed to pornography because of home containment. Parents, keep on top of your kids’ internet use – pornography is more addictive than cocaine. It seems the lockdown is causing as many health issues in our society as the virus itself.

Last Wednesday we were in front of Planned Parenthood in Sioux City, praying for an end to abortion as part of the 40 Days for Life. While visiting with a volunteer from Mary’s Choice (which is next to Planned Parenthood), she showed us a picture of a young boy whose mother had planned on aborting him. When the young mother had gone into Planned Parenthood, they did an ultrasound and told her the baby was deformed and she needed an abortion. Because of the people out front praying for her and by the grace of God, another nurse told her the baby was normal. Well I’m guessing you can figure out the rest of the story. It’s a happy one. My point: this is Planned Parenthood’s M.O. That’s how they make their money. Do you remember the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood by David Daleiden where they were harvesting and selling baby parts? What did Planned Parenthood do? They didn’t deny it. Instead they tried to “destroy the messenger”. In a secret meeting with then Attorney General of California, Kamala Harris, and Planned Parenthood’s top lawyer, it was decided Senator Harris needed to get all of David Daleiden’s undercover videos. I think they eventually charged him with using a fake link: www.youtube.com /watch?v=IOh7Itz9vy0.

In closing, if you cherish religious freedom, the right to life from conception until death, and you don’t want to go down the path of socialism with Kamala Harris, AOC, and Bernie Sanders, then vote for President Trump and the Republicans. When you vote, it can’t be about your feelings, it has to be what is good for the country and our democracy. Thank you for taking the time to read and inform yourself.
