While listening to the excellent speeches at the Republican National Convention of a diversified choice of Americans that truly love America; I picked up on two very excellent questions.

That being, “If not America, Who? and “If not America, Where?” What would happen to the hopes and dreams of so many people around the world that look to America for a future with endless possibilities and above all freedom. If America was no longer the country of opportunity and hope for them and their loved ones, would Russia, Iran, or Venezuela open their borders to them as safe havens and a promise of a better future to those yearning for it?

No other country could fill the void left by an America that was allowed to be destroyed by a socialist anarchist mob of way left infiltrators of her government. Americans want their country’s borders to be protected. But when tragedy and destruction strikes (whether man-made or natural) it is America that leads the way in the recovery effort.

America is the shining light that gives hope to people around the world just by being there. Whether it be the American Red Cross or America’s military or various other rescue means, America doesn’t consider politics in her decisions whether to go where our help is needed.

America sees human beings in tragic, often life-threatening situations, and we send our best to help. What kind of America do you want to live in? The one forgone described, or an America brought to her knees by socialists’ ideals.

An America that is no longer “One nation under God,” but a country ruled by evil men and women that want nothing but to wipe the America of today off the map. I know my answer, are you sure about which America you want to live your life in? You better think hard. Because once the America of today is gone, there will be no turning back. No America to turn to in times of need. No hope of a promising future.

Hi Mz. Carol, my name is Iyo Stephensbailey and I will be running for the county council position in 2022. I appreciate reading your comprehensive and while I disagree fundamentally, not as a Democrat but as an individual, I would love to have a further discussion and possibly learn something from it. My number is 2027901266.

Thank you,

Mr. Stephensbailey

I wake up every morning grateful to be born in this great country. We are not perfect, but in far better circumstances than others. How many Blacks are in Asia? How many Latinos in the Middle East? How many Asians in South America? I would love to know how other Non-European countries are handling their diverse cultures, how many people are flocking to get in to their countries and how much opportunity do their citizens have?

Sorry, but this is an idiotic LTE. America is a mixture of capitalism and socialism. Neither works by itself. To call it one or the other is wrong. It could not be further from the truth to say Democrats - even progressive Democrats like me - want only socialism. Trump on the other hand appears to want an authoritarian government with no free press and less of the help to other countries than the letter writer supports.

Wow, just wow! Hard to believe this author would want such a piece of nonsense published !

Trump helps himself and family and wealthy friends. To him, anyone else can go get bent.

“America doesn’t consider politics in her decisions whether to go where our help is needed.” Yeah, ask Puerto Rico how much all of Trump’s “help” got the lights turned on after the hurricane a couple years ago. And how much “help” do you think Trump would give to all “SH!@ hole” countries of the world. He’s a true humanitarian- not.

And Trump is actively subverting our most basic democratic right in this country which is to vote in free and fair elections by weaponizing the postal service to slow-stop mail-in ballots. News flash: Trump is president of one person only - himself. Please google the nearest clue store and get some.

America today, as we speak” has been RULED by ONE MAN/CHILD, Donald John Trump since January 20, 2017 at 12:01 p.m., who was declared Grand Potentate, Monarch, DICTATOR, free of the constraints of the Constitution of the United States and the Rule of Law, on February 5, 2020 by the COWARDS of the Republican Senate who found him innocent of the proven crimes he was Impeached for. EVERYTHING since then has happened on HIS WATCH, caused by HIS POLICIES. Donald John Trump is the “EVIL” man responsible for trying to sell America out to Vladimir Putin.

‘Murcia may have been under a god, but we need no god to do things right in the real America.

The American Red Cross (founded in 1881) is part of a much larger international organization established in 1863 by Swiss businessman and humanitarian Jean-Henri Dunant (the red cross flag is the Swiss flag, with the colors reversed). Currently there are national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies in 190 countries worldwide.

Vote Biden or end up with Trump as a Facist dictator.

We're unpopular and ridiculous.

"Trump’s re-election message, summarized:

Any bad stuff since I’ve become president is someone else’s fault

Any good stuff is the result of my visionary leadership

Also, the bad things didn’t actually happen — it’s a hoax!"

elmerchismo1

"so many people around the world that look to America for a future with endless possibilities and above all freedom." Obviously you haven't been paying any attention to what anyone around the world is actually saying about us these days. They're shaking their heads and wondering what the hell is going on here, what went wrong with the country they used to admire.

EBelt

Wow. Just wow. There are no words for someone who lives in an alternate universe. Joseph Goebbels name just kept popping in my head when I read such gibberish.

fjulia

Meant "bootlickers" of course. Hate autofill.

fjulia

So you mean an America led by those who are not adulterers, cheats, cowards, or buffoons. An America that does not tolerate injustice, has empathy for all, and seeks to bring us together. An America which doesn't have a liar as president,has a president who takes responsibility, who admits when they are wrong and tries to make amends. In other words, not what we have now with the Great Buffoon and his bootleggers. Good for you.
