Letter: Help America first

Kovach writes, "We all sympathize with Ukraine, but it is time for European nations to take up the slack in dealing with problems in Europe. America has done more than enough."

While I condemn Putin's brutal invasion of Ukraine and feel bad for the people of Ukraine, there is a limit to American largesse.

We've sent billions of dollars to Ukraine, and now that goof ball in the White House and Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, are going to send Ukraine another $40 billion in aid. That is very wrong.

We have plenty of problems in America and the American people should come first. We have a dangerous situation on our Southern border where thousands of illegals are pouring in daily. We have no clue as to what diseases they may carry and a number of them are criminals, murderers and sex offenders.

Our supply chain is non-existent as the shortage of critical baby formula is a shocking example. Our cities are overrun with crime and inflation is pushing Americans to the breaking point financially. Not only is gas and food very expensive, there is even the danger that we could be on the verge of running out of gas and certain foods.

No, sending a corrupt government in Ukraine another $40 billion is not in the best interest of the people of America. We all sympathize with Ukraine, but it is time for European nations to take up the slack in dealing with problems in Europe. America has done more than enough.

Backer writes, "Without a doubt, we’ve had our challenges. We’ve made a few mistakes, some serious and painful, along the way. Through it all, we’ve persevered; we’ve learned and become better. And we won’t stop learning and becoming better."
Kooyer writes, "Even though considered protected free speech by the U.S. Supreme Court, usurping our collective, beloved, enduring emblem of democracy for the purposes of making a political statement is something in which thoughtful Americans of good character simply do not engage."
Martin writes, "Our Jan. 6th Capitol riot is a dark and dismal day in recent history. The day was bad enough and our reaction is worse."
Carpenter writes, "My attitude toward political involvement has changed, for a lot of reasons. One reason is that I have gotten to the age where I’m thinking more about the world that I am leaving to my children and grandchildren."
