Letter: Work together to fix what is broken

(John Raoux | AP file photo) President Donald Trump delivers remarks to supporters at a campaign rally Friday, Oct. 23, 2020, in The Villages, Fla.

This is in response to Kathy Broadhead’s Oct. 11 letter to the editor.

I have been thinking about how to reach solid Trump supporters without denigrating them as the president does with others.

I worry that his supporters will stubbornly follow this president even if it is over a cliff. I want to open their eyes to determine what is important for themselves. Many conservatives and others recognize that this president says things that do not match what he does.

I, too, believe in God, and I also believe in what he says. I, too, love America and the Constitution and believe in their greatness. Part of that greatness is its beauty, clean air and water, and rule by “we the people.” I, too, believe in free speech and that a person is entitled to say what they want even if I disagree with them. I do believe in the right to bear arms according to our Constitution.

I believe in God before this president.

I am not sure what is meant by “cancel culture.” I believe the past cannot be changed and we can learn from it. The party of late-term abortions? I would never consider interfering with a woman’s decision to abort the fetus, early or late. That decision is hers, between her doctor and God. Raising a child is a great responsibility. Pro-choice does not mean pro-abortion. It probably should be renamed pro-access.

Bigger government? Socialist ambitions? Old, worn-out claims. Yes, I receive Social Security and Medicare coverage. There are many programs to benefit the masses. That is why America is great and we have a Constitution.

We agree on many things. Let’s embrace what we agree on and quit calling each other the enemy.

Let’s work together to fix what is broken.

Marilyn Marshall, Magna
