I don't see the Republicans nor people on the right, except for a few relatively rare extremists, as being hateful people.  They are the same people who wanted Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell to run for President.  As a whole, they are very accepting people.  The much maligned Tea Party had their favorite candidate, and mine, which was Herman Cain (who BTW died from COVID 19.)  Trump himself was supportive of minorities and LGBTQ people.

We had the most racially diverse and harmonious country in the world until agitators started fomenting division. Underneath the stated reasons for this agitation, were political agendas on the extreme left.  The actual number of incidences of police shootings is very rare, and studies have shown there is no racial bias to these shootings.  (Black officers are more likely to shoot black suspects than white officers.)

 The average person on the right believes in the founding principles of the country, which include economic freedom by the way of limited government.   They see the left as being increasingly extreme.  They do not hate these people but feel the need to defend the country by opposing radical agendas.

I personally, along with tens of millions of others, saw Donald Trump as a last stand against the extreme far left. Trump wasn't exactly a libertarian small-government conservative, but he also was not Bernie Sanders.

Most voters today are too young to remember the horrors of Jimmy Carter.  I personally think that Biden is going to screw things up so badly that the pendulum will shift back to the right.


P.S.  In early June I wrote this:

When I drove by the Columbus, Indiana Best Buy, I saw a hand-drawn message on the side of the building that said, "We are with you in this!" First of all, rioters have targeted Best Buy and Target stores. Second, who isn't for justice and racial equality? I'm tired of people saying that there is systemic racism, accusing a large group of people or an entire segment of society of being racist. In the year 2020, I don't know a single person who is racist. I'm sure that there are a few bad apples, but they don't represent the rest of us.

I'm sorry that you have drunk the liberal socialist Kool-Aid. The old socialism failed both economically and to catch the imagination of the public. The new socialism only had one resource remaining to promote its agenda, which was to divide people by ethnicity and to convince them that they are victims. As long as you think that you are a victim then you lose at least some control of your life because you think that others are responsible for what happens to you. Consequently, you will look to politicians, mostly radicals, to save you from your grievances.

The tools of the radicals are violence or the threat of violence. On the surface, they want to burn it all down. They sponsor thugs to go from city to city and from state to state to incite the mobs and to commit acts of violence. This is why shop owners, men and women, are being beaten. This is why Molotov cocktails are being thrown.  This is why buildings are being burned. This is why police cars are being overturned and burned.

The socialist left is not about helping people. It never has been because the results of socialism have always been the opposite of its goals. The socialist left is about Power and making sure that they are in control. Although they claim to give power to the people, it never turns out that way. The purpose of Power is to secure it for a small group of people.

The United States is one of the most diverse and racially harmonious places on the planet. Try going to Japan, Korea, or China, and see how racially tolerant they are.

The most prosperous and stable societies are the ones where people respect each other and the rule of law. The more we diverge from that then the more we degrade society and our common interests.

What we are seeing can bring down a society and lead to radical extremists rising up. I don't think that it will happen here, but the violence hurts the cause of the peaceful protestors who have legitimate grievances. And almost everyone wants to see justice done. We are with you in this!

Best wishes,

John Coffey

We need to be for good things rather than against people, whether collectively or individually.  I love all the Star Wars films (although clearly some more than others}, and I believe they promoted courage, honor, loyalty and other good things--at least to me. 
In politics, I contributed to Romney's campaign until the Republicans started sending me hate literature, demonizing all the democratic candidates.  It only worsened in this last election on both sides.  We can't successfully run a nation by hate.  We need love and cooperation, not anarchy.  Ultimately, Hitler and Stalin were not successful using hate and fear, and we won't be either.   Now is the time to be supportive of what we see that is still good in this nation, including in the new administration.  For those of us that believe in God, now is a good time to pray. I don't see anything short of a miracle to get us out of this predicament, especially with the untenable national debt.

According to LucasFilm, all white people are racist.
