Reader comment on item: Blowback from Criticizing Trump
in response to reader comment: the problem in general

Submitted by Michael S. (United States), Jul 31, 2016 at 18:13

Hi, Vecragain

I am a paleo-conservative (according to an Internet test I took), and I agree with your "liberal" views completely -- every word. Something has happened to the English language, that this has happened.

Might I go so far as to imagine that you wholeheartedly support Donald Trump, as I do? Probably not :-)

If you are tempted to vote for Hillary, may I recommend the following:

Here is ONE part of the problem, as I see it: Once upon a time, when I was in my youthful 40s, people got much of their news and entertainment from TV. The various TV stations, therefore, tried to give out programs that has as broad an appeal as possible. With the dominance of the Internet, all this has gone to hell: People on the Right, Left, Top, Bottom, Inside, Outside, and whatever, each view only what they want to see and hear; and the Internet accomodates them. A person of any persuasion, then, can go through an entire election cycle, never seeing anything from the other side -- or, for that matter, anything with even a semblance of truth.

You probably agree -- so vote for Trump, like me (kidding again ha ha :-)

This nutty media circus that is wrongly called an "election" will soon be over. Then Daniel Pipes and I can go back to agreeing with one another about just about everything -- even though he is a confessed neo-con and I am a presumed paleo-con, and we are supposed, I imagine, to hate each other. Until a few days ago, we were also fellow Republicans: at least, according to our official registration. Now that Daniel has left the party, I suppose that makes more room there for you. Let me officially welcome you.

God bless and keep you and yours,

Michael
