To the editor:
President Biden’s inaugural address called for unity to bring the country together. His speech of healing showed promise of moderation. We soon learned that his actions speak louder than his words.
Biden’s executive orders set the tone for his Administration. He supports taxpayer-paid-for abortion on demand up to birth. He’s committed to the Paris Accord which places foreigners in control of our energy policy. Killing the Keystone Pipeline kills jobs, reduces our energy supply and increases costs. Allowing Chinese involvement in our power grid exposes national security.
Biden’s open borders stops wall construction, permits illegals to invade our country, counts them in our census and promises citizenship. Boys will now participate in girls’ sports, including using their locker room. Ordering transgenders in the military uses armed forces to advance a gender equity agenda regardless of consequences.
The President’s pandemic plan is a restatement of Trump’s. Biden trashed Trump’s achievements so he can receive praise for his own foresight and accomplishments.
His actions to date doesn’t demonstrate unity, rather widens the culture divide, attacks Trump’s “America First” direction and enhances a progressive agenda. Seeking unity and respect comes from compromises that seek respect on views; requiring conformity fuels a constitutional crisis.
