In Bob Layne’s Oct. 23 column, he states that “every citizen is accountable” under the “rule of law.” I agree with this statement, but also was wondering if this statement applies to Hillary Clinton also?

You know, the liberal Democrat who deleted over 30,000 emails and then BleachBit them so no one would ever know what was in them? If the ordinary citizen did this, he or she would be in jail.

He states that a liberal is “Free from prejudice, tolerant,” but it seems this is true -- only if you agree with them. Liberals, according to Layne, “favor progress or reform.” It is the “liberal” Democrat Party which favors abortion, illegal immigration, open borders, sanctuary cities and states, doing away with ICE and doesn’t condemn mob violence by such “peaceful” groups as Antifa and Black Lives Matter. These are not examples of progress. If this is what liberals stand for, then I am glad not to be one.

He concludes his column by stating, “ignore those who seek to hold us back to a trickle-down swamp where only the rich and famous enjoy the fruits.” Here he seems to be implying that it is the rich and famous members of the Republican Party. I don’t think that Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, Chuck Schumer and other leaders of the Liberal Democrat Party are hurting for cash.

These liberal leaders favor open borders but live in gated communities. And if they think having illegal immigrants in our country is such a great idea, why don’t they “put their money where their mouth is” by having some of these illegals live with them? How hypocritical they are!
