I hope President Biden understands he has to do more than speak in a slow monotone and folksy manner to create unity.

I also hope he will not brag about Sen. Romney and the like, as if they were the leaders for the Republican voter base. That makes folks like me less trusting and more suspicious. 

The path to unity is paved with brush, rocks, pits, snakes and jackals. Why? For the past four years, I have been called a white supremacist, racist, deplorable, unpatriotic, a Nazi fascist, gangster, xenophobic, Red Army sympathizer, traitor, fear monger, a “that’s not who we are” person.

All this because: I voted for a president who has done more for the average American than any other president in my lifetime; for voting for an authentic leader in an inauthentic world; a pragmatist not an ideologue; a hard liner against our enemies; one with a clear vision who hasn’t played by the Washington rules; who is for honoring the men and women in blue; for wanting border protection against illegals; for protecting the unborn and freedom of religion; for promoting free enterprise; and for bearing four years of abuse by a Democratic Party and media who created non existing issues.

We are 74 million strong Americans who are sick and tired of being called names. We want the same respect that they want, we want them to compromise on the major issues.

To create unity, I suggest President Biden and his party to stop name calling, appoint a really impartial committee to see what really happened at the recent Capitol events and start to compromise with the GOP on major issues. That would be a good start.

This is very interesting. You suggest that our ex-President was, “a hard liner against our enemies”; a man “with a clear vision who hasn’t played by the Washington rules.” Can you explain to me who these “enemies” are and how and why they came to be in a position of subservience to the USA? Did they attack us? What exactly do you mean by Washington rules? What rules do we make for other countries that they do not comply with? Why is it incumbent on these countries to follow rules set by the USA? Moving on: It appears that the NYT and MSM deceived us again regarding the officer said to be killed after being struck with a fire extinguisher; but, all in all, it might be considered that the police were set up by Trump. Did I hear an officer lost some fingers? That doesn’t sound very supportive. Couple more points: In the USA you are free to howl at the moon and call it religion if you so desire. I’m free to not join you. We can both mind our own business and conduct our lives with consideration to our own moral parameters. That includes abortion. To question your resolve, integrity, and possible penchant for hypocrisy, how much effort, or even thought, have you given to the fact USA’s “clear vision” has caused, is causing, the deaths of untold numbers of the “unborn.” Also, I can get you numbers for the millions of children that have died of disease and starvation due to our “vision.” Do they count? Finally, why would anyone think Biden will do anything any different than his predecessors? He can’t keep his hands to himself either, and you can spend an afternoon watching him lie, plagiarize, and threaten to take away your social security and medicare.
