To The Daily Sun,
This letter is in response to Mr. James Vevereka's letter to the editor in your fine newspaper, this Saturday, Nov. 19. Please Mr. Vevereka, back away from the cliff because four years is a lot of time to be living on the edge. Donald Trump won the election fair and square. I won't debate the electoral college, but our forefathers were certainly smart people.
Although he did not win New Hampshire, this was the state that started the locomotive of the "Trump Train." Mr. Trump spoke to the citizens of our state, and the rest of the nation, in terms that resonated with the populace. The main theme was jobs.
Now, I am not a stalwart conservative or Republican and I actually campaigned for Paul Tsonagas in 1992. I remember a group of us taking his wife, Nikki, out on Meredith Bay during the Rotary Fishing Derby. He had a pamphlet called a "Call to Economic Arms" which spoke about the loss of manufacturing jobs in the United States and the fact that this was the "engine" that drove the economy.
President-elect Donald J. Trump resonated this message and, I believe, that won him the election. The United States of America is the greatest country in the world. The reasons are obvious. Mr. Vevereka will have to get used to the next president and his cabinet's vision for America. If things don't work out, then see you in 2020.
