To The Daily Sun,
Mr. Meade completely misses the point about "old white people." We aren't denigrating their past! Heck, we've congratulated them, thanked them, and honored them. The POINT is that a vote for Donald Trump was an attempt to regain the glory of their youth, and that "glory" had a lot of buried ugliness they still don't want to see. It's a reactionary attempt to keep things the way they are, like some parents do by overprotecting their children.
In another decade, white people will be a minority behind what we now consider "minorities" — blacks, Asians, Hispanics, and assorted others. In 50 years, Christianity will no longer be the largest religion on the planet when it is surpassed by Islam. CHANGE HAPPENS and all you have done is to stick a crooked orange finger into the proverbial dike for the next four years. In the long run, it is only going to hurt us. And you.
What will you do when Social Security and Medicare are gone? What will happen to your retirement when the stock market goes haywire? Or to your taxes when folks can no longer afford to drive to this area to boat and ski? Or your medical insurance disappears? This country was founded on perseverance in the face of fear. Instead, you've surrendered to it. And MY generation and that of my children will end up paying for it.
