Letter to the editor: Choice: Populism or compassionate socialism

By RON LEE | Tomah

I never thought people of Wisconsin would even have thought about electing a party that called itself socialist Democrats. But they did, but we’ve got rhino Republicans in our party I’m not fond of either.

Between the socialist Democrats and rhino Republicans, they passed legislation to block President Trump’s emergency crisis declaration to fund the wall at the southern border to keep the illegals from flooding the border into our nation. A report on TV one day said it costs us $70 a day and $70,000 a year for each illegal. President Trump vetoed the legislation.

I don’t support socialism or their big government ideology of universal healthcare, climate change, open borders, abortion or their “Green New Deal” and more.

I heard on TV 64 percent of college students would be comfortable living in a socialist country. For heaven’s sake, help them pay their airfare and put them on a plane. Keep them happy.

In fact, I love to see the schools out of government and teachers’ union control, and get rid of this socialist ideology of listening and reading about students forced to dress or read the Koran in the Muslim way. I even heard we don’t even teach American history, world history or civics anymore. Is that true? Where does all of this money go?

I just believe we could do better without big government. We did when I went to school in the 1940s and 1950s.

I support President Trump. He is a good conservative and supports our Constitution, has Christian faith, and supports free capitalist system of government. I think our society is just plain spoiled rotten and never satisfied.

    Over the years we have heard of horrific child abuse cases across the country involving foster or adopted children and wondered how the system could fail the children involved.

    I am not a “left-winger” or a “right-winger.” I guess I am somewhere in the middle.

    Enclosed is a $38 check to cover a year of the Linda Smith subscription that you lost. Since you’ve never claimed to be anything but a liberal, left-leaning is a fair charge.

    Last fall, I watched as almost all trees on one side of the creek in the park in Norwalk were cut down, leaving no shade on the bike trail in that area.

    Does anyone really need to point out the irony (to put it kindly) of the Wisconsin Supreme Court electronically hearing arguments and issuing a ruling to kill Wisconsin’s stay-at-home order?

    Is the man in the White House so afraid of truth that he hides any information he can?

    Wow … I had many thoughts as I put my bulletproof vest on for this post. All I can say is that it’s all true, but I know that the shots will come, but maybe the vest will hold up. LOL

    Stop and think! Since the Republicans took control of our legislature and governorship, think of all the benefits workers have lost.

    I have been subscribing to the County Line for quite a few years, since I have ties to the area with my great-great-grandfather, great-grandfather and grandfather farming and raising their families around Ontario and also still have family living there and in the surrounding area.
