My definition of an elite liberal; Do as I say, not as I do

To The Daily Sun,

On Friday, July 22, Secretary of State John Kerry said, "Air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State." (I'm keeping a close eye on my A/C for any suspicious activity.)

Kerry is doing his part for global climate change by spending more than 2,300 hours — or 96 days — in the air since becoming secretary of state in February 2013, according to AP. I think only Al Gore, Obama and Hillary spend more time spewing jet fuel exhaust.

Is the DNC going to set an example and shut off the A/C during the convention? What temperature do you think Kerry keeps his several residences at? Will all the man-made climate change believers immediately shut off their A/C's and refrigerators?

The Trump family is only happy when everyone else in America is miserable

To The Daily Sun,

For Dennis Robitaille of Laconia:

If you are so naive as to believe that nonsense about the Trump family at the RNC, then you're like the rest of the Trump followers who simply hate Hillary enough to throw our country away, too.

Please sir, I implore you, do you homework about the Trumps, their history, his plans (including a governmental purge identical to Hitler's first act as chancellor), and his complete and total lack of ideas about how to "make America great again."

This is a family that doesn't want to make the world a better place for everybody. They'll only be happy when everyone else is miserable. They have to have more. They see freedom, liberty, and justice as a right only for them, and if others get more then they are ashamed. Just like these uber-Conservative Christians, heaven isn't heaven if everybody gets to go. America is only great if everybody else isn't. A Trump America is the one with the moat and the wall, and everybody else lives in the mud below.

I urge you to look at the Libertarian Party nominees. Two successful Republican governors, an intelligent platform, and on the ballot in all 50 states. Once they are in the debates you will see less bluster and rhetoric, and more intelligent plans and ideas for moving this country ongoingly forward. The Libertarians are the answer to Republicans who want someone they can like and trust.

Look, John F. Kennedy implored us to shoot for the moon, and we did. We need a leader to move us forward. To quote my friend Jim Wright, "Pessimists don't build starships." We need leaders who will explore the future, not aim for a replay of the past.
