Letters to the Editor – Democrat for Trump?

Dear Editor, How could you?… my friends ask. How could you?… my family members ask. How could you vote for Trump? You a Progressive, a Progressive before it was cool to be a progressive, when progressive meant hearkening back to Roosevelt and Robert La Follette, pro-environment, pro-human rights, anti-concentration of power in both banks and self serving bureaucracies. You, outspoken in print and in person on-line. A Kennedy, early Clinton, John Edwards Democrat, all in for Bernie until he lost the nomination, an admirer of AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), how – could – you? I’ll tell you why. I read in Ralph Nader’s (book) Unstoppable, where he calls for an alliance of progressives and populists to take back the country. I also read Marc Liebovich’s This Town, where he shows that in Washington “there are no Democrats or Republicans anymore, there are only millionaires.” And then came Trump, down the escalator (as) the only person running. As Conrad Black writes in Donald J. Trump: “Only one person, Donald Trump, came forward to challenge the whole political establishment — to call the Bushes incompetent, the Clinton’s dishonest, Obama a failure, the press toadies, the pollsters flacks and lackeys, much of the financial community greedy hypocrites and Congress – a bi-partisan a group of self-serving and inept insiders.
