Conservatives are the hated

No one needs tell conservatives “Hatred won’t help” (Jerry Jantz, Feb. 2). We are the hated.

Second, our “native liberals” are here organic to the process of a two-party system. In what was regionally an agrarian economy, where the hoof-to-table, farm-to-table distance is short, the indisputable fact is that produces conservatives. Outside the city limits, this is very much the case.

Anyhow, the balance is what it is. Or was. The influx of liberals who have ruined their native area (why are you leaving it, by the way?) will in effect make sure that my views aren’t heard in Congress (question asked and answered).

Third, I collect Medicare and Social Security because I paid into it. If that didn’t occur to you, I must question whether or not you ever received a paycheck.

I must admit that I haven’t heard every word the president has uttered. Where can I find the texts about “socialism for the wealthy”? And it’s not conservatives viewing socialism as a failed experiment. Please give me an example of it working. And don’t go all Scandinavian on me. They are democracies with some socialist programs (same as us).

Fourth, during the Kavanaugh hearing, I was in tears every day over what was happening to my country. I repeatedly tried to approach people I knew were left-leaning to talk about it. At best, I was dismissed. Usually, I got hatred back. The left foments it, rubs it all over themselves and when able, vomits it out.
