Why the Democrats aren’t winning anymore

Mr. Sheridan, here are some statistics for you. The highest crime cities - Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Houston, St. Louis, East St. Louis - pretty much vote Democrat. The highest taxed cities in the country - Boston, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Oakland and San Francisco - all vote Democrat. States with the highest energy production - West Virginia, Oklahoma, Texas, Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota - mostly vote Republican. Safest places to live - Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho - almost all vote Republican.

Excluding Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, Seattle, Portland, Boston, Houston, Las Vegas and areas near Tampa and Miami, most of the country votes Republican by county and total number of states. In fact, it’s only California that has Hillary Clinton ahead in the popular vote. For corruption, the Republicans have nothing on the Democrats. Even this newspaper listed all the Democrat officials now serving or having served federal time for corruption in our towns.

In fact, another Democrat, Oliver Hamilton, who holds two Democrat offices, faces a federal judge in the U.S. District Court in the near future for corruption. He cheated local union members by hiring illegal aliens and barely paid them minimum wage.

According to your letter, over 62 million Americans are ignorant and overweight. This is why your party is not winning anymore. You and Mr. Robke are doing more to help the conservative cause than you’ll ever know. Please don’t stop.

Phil Henning, Smithton
