Country Comes Before the Party

Editor, News-Register:

I’d like to respond to a recent published Letter to the Editor from a Mr. Denny Longwell from New Martinsville. I don’t know if Mr. Longwell has ever ran for a political office, is running or will run in the future. But he sure does have the political speech and rhetoric down pat.

Only a politician can use that many words and in effect not really say anything.

Mr. Longwell is the perfect example of a major problem of the growing political divisiveness that is spreading throughout this great country. Liberals like him love their party more than they love their country. In their eyes the Democrats can do no wrong — no matter how wrong it is. They just blindly follow and believe everything their leaders tell them to believe and when the results turn out bad, they blame conservatives for roadblocking them.

To the contrary, conservatives love their God first, their family second, our great country third and then they love their conservative party.

With all the Democrat pep-talk words that Mr. Longwell wrote in his letter, here is what I believe he was really trying to say: It’s OK if gas prices skyrocket as long as the Democrats are in control. It’s OK if inflation skyrockets as long as Democrats are in control. It’s OK if crime rates around the country skyrocket as long as Democrats are in control.

Being in a recession is not a bad thing as long as Democrats are in control. It’s OK for parents to have no input as to what is being taught in school as long as Democrats are in control. It’s OK that we as U.S. citizens need a passport to travel anywhere outside our country but millions of illegal immigrants can cross our southern border and be given the benefits of citizenship, and you guessed it, as long as the Democrats are in control.

It’s OK that we are now dependent on foreign oil to provide the energy we need as long as Democrats are in control. And he also believes that life begins on the date of birth and that disrespectful kneeling for the National Anthem is OK.

I also saw recently where Mr. Longwell wrote that on President Biden’s worst day that he is still a thousand times better than President Trump was on his best day. I wish he would tell me what day that was because I sure don’t remember it. And no one else here in New Martinsville that I have talked to can remember it, either!

According to Mr. Longwell, no matter what happens in our country all is OK just as long as his beloved Democratic party is in control. That’s the mindset of people who love their party more than they love their country.

Remember, even 98% truth is still a lie!
