Letter to the Editor

Jim Kutz: Letter writer explains stance on election result

Saturday, January 23, 2021

Dear Editor:

I am one of the 81,283,098 people who voted for Joe Biden.

I do not love Joe Biden. I do not think he will be one of the greatest presidents ever. I just feel he was a much better match to my values.

John McCain, Bob Dole, the Bushes and Mitt Romney were honorable men with a good set of morals and ethics. I have voted Republican at times. Trump never displayed morals or ethics. 

Joe Biden does not espouse Socialism, and yes, he will raise taxes on people who make $400,000 a year. I don’t have to worry about my taxes going up for  that increase.

I also recognize 74,223,744 people voted for Trump, so in a room of 10 people, at least four of them voted for Trump. So, respect for others views is critical if we are to recover.

Trump continues to spout the “Big Lie” that he won. People who want to heal need to reject Trump’s “Big Lie” that he won and reject the White Supremacy he advocated with MAGA.

I hope this will be my last letter on this subject and that the inauguration will be peaceful, and my next letter will be about some pleasant memory of life in SW Missouri.

Jim Kutz
