To the Editor:
I am writing in response to the letter to the editor by Diane Goss, “‘Spoiled brats’ are a blessing,” published in the November 16, 2016 issue of your paper.
Like Ms. Goss, I, too, have teen family members who are responsible, hard-working, and concerned about the future of our nation. I have no doubt that they will involve themselves positively in their environment.
However, I vehemently disagree with Ms. Goss when she said that the anti-Trump supporters are “… more inclusive, more tolerant, more accepting…” than the pro-Trump supporters. Really? Tolerant? Accepting? I don’t see it!
It was the ANTI-Trump group that refused to accept the election results. It was the ANTI-Trump group that protested after the election by blocking interstate traffic, and vandalizing police cars and personal property, and they had to be coddled by college professors with arts and crafts and exemptions from exams because they weren’t mature enough to accept the disappointment of not getting what they wanted. Yes, they acted like “spoiled brats” whether they or their parents admit it or not. Life is hard. You don’t always get your way. And sometimes you are the one who is wrong. You learn a lot from the hard experiences that hit you in the real world. Grow up.
Trump supporters of all ages know this. And they are far more representative of the mature, responsible, and working-class, people who are the back bone of a nation. Yes, our young people are the ones to carry our nation forward. And I thank God that so many are willing to work to make America great again.
