Would Sid Schwab be happier in a socialist country?

Leave it to radical leftist columnist Sid Schwab to make something inspiring into something ugly (“Trump goes Fourth to boost his ego at home and abroad,” The Herald, July 6). Here it was July 4th in our capital city, colorful fireworks, a wonderful speech commemorating our country’s special heritage, impressive maneuvers by the Blue Angels, and many thousands of patriotic Americans flying flags; and Schwab, in his usual nastiness, looked for the worst. Schwab is no patriot, whatever he says.

He continues to vomit out his hatred of all things Trump every Saturday in the obliging Herald. Trump can do nothing right in Schwab’s eyes, and neither can those who agree with the president. As a Trump supporter, I encourage Mr. Schwab to move to a country run by socialists (which ideology he worships) — perhaps Venezuela or Cuba — and see how long he would last before crying to get back here.
