I am sick and tired of the media’s fear mongering tactics in the U.S. presidential election, and now I see it has spread locally as I read Mr. Nienow’s editorial in last weeks paper.
His statement: “The rest of the world should have been able to vote.” Who does Mr. Nienow think he is?
Flavio’s sentiment is what the majority of U.S. people said no to. We are all allowed to have our opinion; that is what a democracy is, however, it seems to me that being anything but far left is seen as threatening, hostile or illegitimate.
Donald Trump may be many things, but a racist he is not.
Up until this election he was well regarded by minorities and a champion in the black community. And it is unfounded that he will attack the gay community, Trump is well known as a LGBTQ advocate, even appointing a gay person to a Cabinet-level foreign policy position. Not to mention, Pay Pal co-founder Peter Thiel (who is also openly gay) is a huge Trump supporter. As long as you listen to CNN, CBC and the like you won’t hear this.
And lastly, Trump is a business man, he understands how to run a large organization successfully. The U.S. needs a strong businessman/woman at the helm, this will have benefits for everyone around the U.S. as well.
He doesn’t need Saudi money to line his bank account. As far as the lumber trade agreement is concerned, the U.S. has always played hard ball, always. We’ve seen the World Trade Organization tell the U.S. that they are wrong and they still fought it tooth and nail to the very last second. The U.S. has voted for change from the perpetual political elites that have been running things for far too long.
Please pull your head out of your “far left” buttocks, rub your eyes and take another look. They voted for change and they got it. Yea, democracy still works, whether you like it or not.
