Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Has Troy Goodnough's hatred for our President blinded him to actual facts? Billy Graham's son, Franklin, now preaches the Gospel, not Billy Jr. Franklin Graham understands that we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. God is also capable of using Trump for His purposes. Graham understands that Trump has repented along with the majority of the American people who voted for him. Was a payoff to a porn star merely an act of making restitution? Isn't that a Christian value? If the Democrats who have committed the same sins and more would repent and make amends as well, instead of pointing fingers at Republicans in order to steal elections, we'd all be better off.

Has Goodnough heard of RINOs or Republicans In Name Only, such as John McCain? McCain is not a real conservative. RINOs have been running the Republican Party and getting away from true conservative values. They have no longer been a healthy opposition party as Goodnough says he would like to see. So, I hope and pray he is right about Republican elders calling it quits. Goodnough does not appreciate the positive influence Trump has had on the Republican Party and seems oblivious to the now true conservative values emerging in the new blood of the Republican Party.

Though Goodnough believes torture is immoral, he advocates for the Democratic Party, which advocates for torturing innocent unborn babies until they die in their mother's womb without having had a chance for life.

Real conservatives are for civil liberties. This is precisely why President Trump has been doing what he has been doing. That includes putting someone in charge of the EPA who will be as concerned as Trump is about taking the excessive power in Washington, D.C. and giving it back to the people, where it belongs.

Goodnough wants separation of Church and State. The Democratic Party does not. The Democrats legislate against our consciences and freedom of religion.

While Democrats are working hard to keep Planned Parenthood tax funded, Trump knows it would help our budget deficit tremendously to be free of the millions in taxpayer funding each year to Planned Parenthood.

To believe as Goodnough does that it is the Democratic Party who is working to reduce our budget deficit is far from reality. Former President Barack Obama created the largest deficit we had ever known. If we don't get rid of the so-called Affordable Health Care Act, how can we recover?

Overspending in our government happens when the Democrats take control.

Conservatives are still concerned about fair taxes and overspending. Conservatives like the current tax bill because they realize in the long run it helps our budget deficit, not hurts it as Goodnough claims. People like Goodnough forget that corporations can't be overtaxed either so they can bring their businesses back to this country and that they will be able to provide more jobs and better pay to workers.

It was good to know that Goodnough cares about character. It was also good to see Trump chose such a man of character as his pick for the U.S. Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch cares about following the constitution and cares about religious liberties and conscience rights. Yet, Democrats fought strongly against Trump's selection.

I suggest we all pray for our mid-term elections and for one another so that God's choices may prevail for the sake of liberty and justice for all in our nation.
