Re: “Reader: Spare us from a Robert Dear execution trial

Donald Spitz:

False equivalence. Diversion. A fetus is not "people."

Dear's actions are criminal. Abortion is legal. If you can't see the difference, you're not looking hard enough.

Your argument is why guys like Dear do what they do. They believe murder is justified to "save the babies." I repeat. Abortion is legal. Murder is not.

Re: “Reader: Doug Lamborn, you're totally out of touch with your constituents

Brian Scott:

"This is, overall, a conservative community.
If you want to vote him out, you have to give voters a reasonable alternative."

I agree in principle. In practice, however, El Paso county GOP voters wouldn't recognize a moderate Democrat (or Republican, for that matter) if that candidate wore a sandwich board stating "I AM A MODERATE."

The majority of voters in El Paso county are not interested in moderation. They want revolution. They hate the government. They hate taxes. They hate "policy" and prefer 1950 to 2017. Any electorate that would put Gordon Klingenschmitt in office is an angry and gullible group. That isn't going to change in my lifetime.

"All things in moderation" is good advice. Sadly, it does not apply to El Paso county elections.

Re: “Reader: The Indy's loaded with crap

Mr. Slocum:

"Whatever happened to decency and common sense?"

I think your President discarded all that when he started his campaign. Don't look for it to make a return for at least 4 years. It' just not his style.

As for the resistance that you seem to abhor, ask yourself this question: What, exactly, has Mr. Trump done to bring all Americans into his MAGA plan?

I'll help you out here. Nothing. Nada. Zero. Zip. And he won't be bothering to do so, since he is only concerned with his base. The rest of us are his enemies. And, as he has said himself, he crushes his enemies. He has no intention of uniting with anyone but his supporters.

Pardon my cynicism, but when the damage is piling up in DC, the Indy is doing a public service by tracking and documenting that damage for its readers. You need to adjust your tolerance for poop. DJT is feeding it to us daily.

Re: “Colorado Springs consultant tapped by Trump for EPA

Qualifications?

"Colorado State Director and senior advisor to the Trump campaign."

Yup....that's what I thought.

Re: “Suppression is the goal of many 'free speech zones'

CSIReader:

Apparently only "leftist violence" is a problem for you. Double standard, of course.

Thanks for your sincere concern. However, I don't take medical, musical or political advice from strangers.
