Letter: Biden, Democrats have country on the wrong course

We are part of The Trust Project.

President Biden is breaking lots of records, but they are all bad ones.

His age and gaffs are not the primary cause. Biden's policies do not work. His rapid transition away from fossil fuels without adequate green replacements is causing record-breaking gasoline, diesel and energy prices. His border policies allow record numbers of migrants to cross the border and cause record numbers of fentanyl deaths.

His economic policies cause record inflation and his proposed solutions will make inflation worse. Record numbers of crimes are being committed due to ineffective law enforcement policies of Biden and Democrats at all levels of government.

Defunding the police policies are causing officers to leave the profession in droves. And appropriately, Biden's approval rating is at a record low.

We are familiar with the zipper principle when two lanes are attempting to merge on a highway. One often sees some vehicles jacking for position to resist the interposition of someone else coming into their lane.
Too many people think that any government-sponsored program that contributes to our general welfare is “socialism”; i.e., public parks, roads, military, etc. These programs are not unique to socialism and can be administered by any type of government.
No matter what we look like or where we come from, we all want to have our voices heard and valued in our democracy. But as of today, 60,000 Minnesotans of voting age living in our communities can't vote because they have committed a felony.
I am writing to express my strong belief in the importance of Boy Scouts for our youth. Scouting is a youth development program that helps young people become responsible citizens, active members of their communities, and leaders in their own lives. Through hands-on learning activities, outdoor activities, and service projects, scouts learn outdoor safety, problem solving, teamwork, self-confidence, and much more. They also develop important life skills such as mutual respect and understanding, communication, goal setting, creativity, honesty, and integrity.
