In response to a recent letter to the editor about the values of Trump voters, I appreciated the writer’s explanation about why evangelicals voted for Trump and the Republican party, despite Trump’s flaws. The writer goes on to say it is because they are for the marriage of one man and one woman, allowing the unborn to live, and that the Democratic Party is intolerant to these values.
I do not claim to speak for all the Biden supporters, but I sincerely believe they are not intolerant to these values, only that these specific values should not be legislated and forced upon the entire nation. That Biden’s supporters understand that many religious values are built into our culture, but separation of church and state is paramount, and that the character of those we elect is of utmost importance is carrying out the laws of our land in a fair and impartial manner in support of all Americans, no matter their religion, color of their skin, ethnicity, or gender.
Biden supporters believe every vote matters, and are deeply concerned of the shift to an authoritarian mindset of many in the Republican party, its demonizing the press and of all who disagree with them, and their continued efforts to suppress votes in the inner-cities.
Unlike Trump, Biden will be the president of all Americans, and he will not disparage others for self-promotion.
