A certain letter writer this past week attempted to defend their dislike for the President of the United States, commander and chief and follower of Jesus Christ Barack Obama. He tries like so many others to connect our president to Islam but falls flat. He offers nothing that shows that our president leans upon the teachings found in the Koran.
The author also implies that there is something wrong with being liberal, socialist and radical. Liberals are as vital as conservatives in this nation. From the founding of our nation, civil rights movement and women's sufferage, liberals stood on the forefront of all these important events. I would also dare say that the men and women of these movements would be deemed as radical.
The author also commented upon the Bible but does he understand there are socialistic ideas within the book? In no way am I saying the Bible is pro-socialism or even pro-capitalism because those concepts never existed at those times. However, for a book that leans toward group security and economics, it would be very ignorant to imply that socialism is flat out evil.
The only thing this gentleman from Belpre says that I agree with is that people have lost medical insurance due to Obamacare. That is a fact that can be backed up with evidence. Sadly, the majority of what he says otherwise is unfounded and factless.
