To the Editor:
J. Pym, in a speech said, “Actions speak louder than Words, and are more to be regarded.” in 1736. The phrase was used again by Abraham Lincoln in 1856: “Actions speak louder than words is the maxim ...”
The actions by President Trump show the truth of that statement. We have the midterm election this year and the Democratic Party thinks it can make gains in Congress by its rhetoric vs. what the GOP is actually doing with its actions. I think it’s time to let the loudmouth Democrats know that they can use all the words in the dictionary to explain why they did not do anything during the past administration about immigration, as they promised during the election primaries and control of the Congress and the presidency for two years. Now, that their words have been proved meaningless, why are they attempting to tell the GOP how to do business?
It comes down to who is taking the actions to make the United States better and who just thinks that saying they did a good job is enough. Look at the major cities and states with Democratic leadership. California, Chicago, New York, Houston and others are trying to pick and choose what laws they will follow. The laws they don’t agree with are the ones that are meant to keep our country safe. The ones they agree with cost taxpayers money for noncitizens who are not supposed to be here.
I was in the military under President Carter (the hollow military) and I felt sorry for the ones under President Obama, but now we have a President in the same vein as President Reagan who made sure the military could do its job. If President Carter or Obama had faced the first or second Iraq conflict, there would not have been a military to rely on.
Lastly, the main media outlets appear to feel that their coverage should be about words, not deeds. I think it’s time that they learn that although words may hurt you, actions can get you killed.
I truly believe that all the Democrats feel they are doing a “good” job, but when you look at their lack of action, it tells a different story, and the individuals who vote for their rhetoric should take a second look without their rose-colored glasses.
