Why is socialism OK for rich, but not rest of the America?

Letter to the Editor

Frank Watson (“Socialism is a one-way trip to disaster,” Cheney Free Press, Aug. 1, 2019). I will defend his right to say whatever, but to allow this white-privileged, right-wing individual to spew without any rebuttal is what I really find objectionable.

His latest diatribe about the horrors of socialism is too much. We have in this country socialism for the richest, ever since Reagan’s trickledown nonsense. Why is it OK for them and not the rest of us?

I too am a vet. Unlike Frank, I was a grunt with frightened 18-year-old kids armed to the teeth hopped up on drugs or alcohol or both behind me. I wager Frank never experienced that sensation.

Next football game I’ll place my right hand on my heart and take a knee. Just for all the Franks in the world.

For the record, I’ve spent the last 40 years witnessing the GOP lead us down to this point, the absolute worst person posing in the Oval Office. If you think he’s all that and a bag of chips, I’m going to think you too are a physically and intellectually lazy white supremacist incapable of empathy or sympathy or factual reason.
