Letter to the Editor: Trump’s platform ‘creeping socialism’

Joshua Lane


International Relations

Donald Trump is a Democrat.

A democrat representing an economic worldview preceding America’s very own: Bill Clinton.

A Democrat who believes in protectionism where, in this current economic climate, would translate to fairer deals which is what supposedly he’s all about in his book, “The Art of the Deal” (1987).

With this, labor unions must be empowered and they will not be empowered by Hillary Clinton. Being for a common market and open borders will actually cause great harm to labor unions. Unfettered immigration simply does not work, especially with the rise of international terrorism.

A common market only works if fair deals are put into place with meat, and a substantial economic threat: A tariff. Placing a tariff, no matter how slight, to our competitors whose allegiances, or loyalties, are shady will make us better off in the long-run until those allegiances definitively change.

This is what the old Democratic Party was about. This is creeping socialism. This is what made America great in the 1950’s and the 1960’s despite its social ills relating to ethnic discrimination.

Vote your conscience.

And, write a letter to the Trump telling him to tone down his sarcasm, if elected.
