Leaders must support police

If we don’t have law and order by our police departments, we will have chaos on the streets.

We have reached less than 100 days until the 2020 Presidential election Nov. 3, heralded as one of the most important elections in history. The nation is embroiled in controversy, a war against COVID-19, economic havoc on the main street, and anarchists infiltrating peaceful protests leading to violence and looting. This is a tough time to be seeking re-election for president.

But President Trump is up to the challenge and his strong belief in law and order will prevail come November. If we don’t have law and order by our police departments, we will have chaos on the streets as we have never witnessed. Armed patriots will guard homes and streets while the mobs will continue to loot, rob, and tear down cities.

It is my strong belief that the silent majority of both Republicans and Democrats have been patient watching the younger generation blow off coronavirus steam. They can go out at night and terrorize the neighborhoods, break windows, and bring home some new shoes or a new television set without consequences.

Trump is sending Federal agents, not troops, to end violence and protect taxpayer property from destruction.

Civil rights have progressed a long way with men like congressman John Lewis receiving well deserved recognition this past week following his death. He was one of the last living leaders who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King. He believed in peaceful protests and suffered beatings for his beliefs.

He loved America and many of his steps moved racial relations forward. There is still work ahead and in a free enterprise system, the system is free, but not always fair. Hard work, luck, and birthrights have always been part of the equation. Lewis wanted America to succeed for all.

We need to support our police and maintain law and order at all costs. What must the Chinese, Iranians, North Koreans, and Russians think about what they see happening in America? We are weakening our country by these mob scenes. Violence and anarchy cannot stand in the United States and we cannot let our nation be destroyed from within by mob rule and intimidation.

I’m thankful that we have a president with the courage to support law and order and defy the forces that would destroy our country. Burning down Federal buildings and defunding police departments is a very dangerous movement. Anarchists moving from city to city and creating racial hatred and turning peaceful gatherings into mob violence is not what Congressman Lewis and Dr. King preached.

I’m thankful that we have a president who has the courage to stand for law and order and support our nation’s police departments.

One of the biggest hoaxes being pushed is to eliminate the Constitution mandated electoral college system allowing all states to participate in the election of the president by giving each state representation in Washington by population but limiting votes only to that state.

The Founding Fathers were very wise in not wanting any city or state to always elect the leadership on size and population. If the voting system is eventually overturned by misguided Colorado voters in November we can ultimately have little voice in presidential elections and California, New York, Florida, and Texas will decide who is the next president forever by population.

Candidates will no longer need votes from Colorado or Wyoming and our votes will be lost to the larger more populous states. It is just stupidity for small states to overturn the present voting system and lose influence in national elections and leadership.

Colorado is expected to gain two more congressional seats after the 2020 census, based upon a growing population. All states have congressional members allocated by population. But, again the wisdom of the Founding Fathers gave each state two United States Senators, not based upon population thus protecting the smaller states.

We should not rewrite the Constitution and dilute the political power of our state.

Regardless of your political affiliation this is not good for Colorado, but great for wonderful New York and sunny California.
