He'll take the boor over cloaked socialist

This is in response to the letter, "GOP must find a way to dump Trump," (Aug 16). First of all, I would be the first to say that Donald Trump was not my first choice, he is boisterous, loud, and boorish. That said, he is also hugely successful in the world of real estate globally, employing tens of thousands of people around the world.

Trump has been portrayed as having very public bankruptcies, which is true, but seven failures out of 530 businesses is a pretty good record. He lives in the world of free enterprise were productivity and results are rewarded. His opponent has made her fortune traveling through the labyrinth of political cronyism, and very apparent corruption, for decades, selling her positions of authority for huge paydays, and recklessly jeopardizing American security in the process.

Both are imperfect, but given my druthers, I'll go with the boor who can open the door to American prosperity, rather than a cloaked socialist who will further stifle that prosperity with a continuation of President Obama's abysmal agenda.

It's time for America to redefine individual achievement, and abandon the dead-end collectivism that led us into a no-growth economic and social ditch.

Lingering anger over Vietnam pushed politics far left

This theory is based on 20 years of war in Vietnam (1955 to 1975). The draft did not include college students until they graduated. As the war progressed, students began to agitate against the war: they didn’t want to be drafted on graduation. The above were serious...

All this time off for employees hurts small businesses, eliminates good jobs

Connecticut recently passed a law guaranteeing paid family and medical leave for up to 12 weeks at full pay. Someone needs to explain why every employee who gets a paycheck will pay an additional tax for this benefit whether they use it or not, except for government or municipal employees who...
