First off I am an unhyphenated Patriotic American, but I have been called a "bitter clinger", a "deplorable -irreconcilable", and lately a "Neanderthal" thinker. And now according to Leonard Pitts' opinion piece in the April 1 DMREG - I am a coward, liar, and a fool because I do not fall for the Liberal/Marxist/Communist wing of the Democrat party. I have never owned a slave, nor have I physically abused any human of color or no color. Nor have I prevented any person his/her ability to cast a legal vote. If the author and Democrats as a whole are trying to change me to their agenda - it ain't work'n. We Americans are basically a good and moral people. We believe in freedom, liberty and the American way; all can achieve success based on their ability and willingness to work for it. Victimization is nothing more than a cover for underachievers.
Nationally this last election did not all go the way I had wished, but for the most part it went the way I wished in Iowa. Conservative thought won 3 of 4 House seats and 1 Senate seat. Even though outnumbered in the first District Mariannette Miller-Meeks was finally declared the winner. President Biden has shown within the first 100 days error upon error in administration. He has acted like only a one-term is possible. This is his only chance for top down governance. 2022 and 2024 can't come soon enough.
