Editor’s note: This letter is by Gregory M. Thayer of Rutland.
I believe in our great nation and our center-right principles of liberty, small government, low taxes, freedom, reduced regulations, “America first” and personal responsibility. I want my fellow Americans to have freedom and opportunities to take risks, be innovative and grow individually.
I believe President Donald Trump and Republicans will save our religious freedom and the right to freely worship without any fear of the Left. They are protecting the unborn and believe in our national motto: “In God We Trust.”
I believe that they are creating a health care system for all with private markets, not with mandates nor taxes nor fines for not purchasing insurance. That will create competition, and transparency in pricing, and cover per-existing medical conditions. They will cut prescription drug costs.
I believe that they will protect our borders, stop illegals from getting into the states, stop drugs from coming across the southern border, and stop child trafficking.
I believe that they will protect all Americans, and that they believe in law and order. They support our men and women of law enforcement across America. They support the Second Amendment.
I believe in their support for our great military, and they have built up our forces. They have not started any wars but instead are taking us out of bad, hot regions.
I believe in their support for the U.S. Flag, free speech, individual rights, and the American Dream.
I believe they support our Constitution, the Electoral College and the truth. Our Electoral College provides the most equal treatment of voters.
I believe in their policy of low taxes and all Americans receiving more of their pay in their weekly checks, and fairer trade agreements for all Americans. They are repatriating businesses back to American soil and opening real estate, auto, steel, coal, and other industries.
I believe in their hard work for minority communities, especially the black community, in jobs, lower unemployment rates, more small business startups, home ownership and killing the Clinton/Biden 1994 crime law that imprisoned more blacks for longer sentences and low level crimes, including first time offenders.
I believe they are excellent stewards of our environment getting America out of the Paris Accord; I believe in doing the right things environmentally and planting 1 trillion trees nationwide. I believe Vermont’s new Global Warming Solutions Act is anti-business.
I strongly feel that this election is about good versus evil and light versus darknes, and that Trump/Pence and the Vermont Republicans are the good and light.
I am voting on Nov. 3 for a positive and healthy future for my country and my great little state of Vermont. I want to see Vermont turn red. The Democrats are bad for America.
