Letter: Vote for Trump was vote for better policies, security
I’m disgusted that politics/pop culture has devolved in our country. I, like most Americans, am a mix of races, nationalities and religious elements, so it’s deeply offensive to be labelled something I’m not. Identity politics, by its very nature, is divisive. Now, I’m supposed to hate one part of my self to please the left.
I did not vote for Trump because I was a racist, homophobe, Islamophobe or a female misogynist. I chose better policies: economic strength, energy independence and national security. I don’t hate immigrants, but I want them lawfully here and to take their turn and earn their way like the others who came before.
Why can’t the U.S. control its own borders, like other countries? And why must we sacrifice our national identity/sovereignty to please the international community? Much of what we are witnessing is an assault on our national identity. We can’t let these people win.
