Reader comment on item: Why I Just Quit the Republican Party

Submitted by Boris Gorbis (United States), Jul 22, 2016 at 05:27

Dear Mr. Pipes.

I respect your right to have a most negative opinion about Mr. Trump and the Republican party in general even though this runs contrary to mine and your own stand on many world trends.

Just consider how much of your (Mr. Volk's, LA Times editors and an army of sophisticates ) perceptions of Trump's crudeness, impulsivity etc are shared by the detractors, competitiors and enemies of this country. I salute you for adding to this miasmic cloud of fear of Trump's Presidency for it will make those who want and plan to harm us feel a great deal less confident for precisely the same reasons. I too see a man with faults, but I also see a leader whose personality and presence fits the only criteria I expect from the elected servant in the White House. His primary job is to keep us safe and to make us safer. Everything Mr. Trump was accused of points to his dedication to and focus on this mission. That is why I count on your wisdom and your vote come November. As far as the Republicans are concerned, back in 2006, I penned an article "Would American Jews Abandon Israel". (http://www.jrtelegraph.com/2006/11/boris_gorbis_wo.html.)

I regret that the trend had become almost irreversible among the Democratic Party members and ideologues. Frankly, your jumping off the Republican bandwagon where your voice carries a lot of weight seems ... certainly ill considered.

Submitting....
