Re: “Political hopefuls line up to replace Assemblymember Evan Low” (Jan. 3).
With the primary just two months away, the race to replace Assemblyman Evan Low is not just heating up but it’s going to turn into a candidate cram session. Most voters know little to nothing about the people who’ve made the ballot. With several of them having no or only partially made campaign webpages, learning about them is currently difficult. This won’t do ahead of selecting who should to go to Sacramento during tumultuous times in the Legislature.
California’s housing woes have been worsening. Prices and crime weigh heavily on people’s minds. The climate is becoming more unpredictable and needs immediate attention. Combine this with low trust in government and a gargantuan state deficit, and we need to ask what direct actions each will take to solve these problems while improving efficiency and reducing corruption. I definitely plan to; hopefully they’ll share the answers with all of us.
Christians for Trump
made deal with devil
On Christmas Eve and again on Christmas Day, Donald Trump sent deranged social media messages where he inveighed against all his perceived political enemies. In his mentally unstable judgment, all who oppose him should “ROT IN HELL.” He ended both messages with “MERRY CHRISTMAS.”
Trump has given some Christians his political assistance and appointments, and they give him their votes.
In view of his Christmas messages of fear and hate, have these same Christians made a Faustian bargain, a deal with the devil? Have they sold their souls for a mess of pottage?
Aversion to truth
key for Republicans
Re: “Biden’s administration is worse than Trump’s” (Page A6, Jan. 4).
Letter-writer Anthony Stegman points out the extremely low bar Republicans need to clear in the coming presidential campaign: Just find something in the world you don’t like and blame it on Joe Biden. Take the crisis in Gaza. All Biden can realistically be expected to do is try to chastise Benjamin Netanyahu into sparing civilian lives.
The boldness of the world’s dictators? Could that possibly be related to Trump’s fawning over the enemies of democracy, or perhaps his many ill-advised and ineffectual international dealings as president, or perhaps the current MAGA-inspired political chaos?
The GOP doesn’t need a platform. An aversion to the truth will do just fine.
