To the Editor:
In response to Mr. Miles’ opinion letter which appeared on September 12. I am familiar with Turkey’s ethnic cleansing in 1922 (my mother’s family is from Aivali, Asia Minor) and my father’s town in Cyprus 1974 (Tumbou). However, America first. I love Greece. My children and grandchildren speak, read and write Greek. I think in Greek, but our country, America, comes first. That is what President Trump has been trying to do. The Democrats from day one (Schumer, Pelosi) said they would veto everything the president would propose. Maxine Waters said “to disrupt the lives of all Republicans … go in their face,” etc. The Democrats are ruining everything we stand for. My parents were Democrats. I, too, until I witnessed the disgraceful Kavanaugh hearings which was Feinstein’s farce. Democrats are jealous because Hillary lost and Trump gets to do the things he promised. The Democrats espouse Communism. I saw firsthand Communism in Venezuela. Barefoot children begging for money to buy food. The mud houses on the side of the mountain. Also a close relative’s grandfather was shot and killed by a Communist neighbor in the southern Peloponnese. Communism is reprehensible.
I feel religious leaders should not influence voters one way or another. They should focus on the killing of full term babies. That should be on their conscience. Also we should put all the haters of American laws and traditions on a slow boat to China.
