Letter to Editor: Ink By The Barrel 



By: Nat Humphreys 

Surprise setbacks in the recent midterm elections have the Republican Party in a froth.

What went wrong? What was it we said, they’re asking, that wasn’t a bedrock American pushback to the lawlessness progressives have seemingly blessed? 

One question appe...

  1. Expect the same results for the Republicans in 2024 if Trump seeks the party’s nomination and endorses candidates. Most of us had enough of his sophomoric name calling and insults in the last presidential primary. It’s too bad he didn’t deliver the policies and legislation without the drama and conflict, and was not smart enough to clean house at the White House, FBI, DOJ, CIA, and Joint Chiefs of Staff right after his inauguration.

    • I agree with you completely. For all of the “good” that Trump did accomplish, there was also some “bad”. We DO have to get the ship righted, however. Take a look at your IRA/401K/403B, and what has been done by the Democrats in just two short years. For all of the Republicans worried about Trump, there are an equal number of Democrats worrying about “Sleepy Joe”, who can’t even find his way off the South Lawn. Pray Ron DeSantis comes through. I agree with you — Trump did not treat the departments, like he would’ve a new company he had just purchased. He should’ve taken Elon’s approach @ Twitter.

  2. If Trump does actually run again for President, he will split the Republican Party even worse than in 2022 and hand the Democrats another 4 years in comtrol of the Presidency and Congress. If MAGA is truly his mantra, then he would quietly go away.

  3. Trump will destroy the party…He will not get the nomination, DeSantis will (it is his party now) and Trump will run as an independent, hence splitting the vote and the dems (even Biden) can’t lose that election!

  4. Both parties play to their base, but Trump’s “sophomoric name calling and insults”, as Ted said, turned me off from the beginning. Then the concerted efforts to interfere with the peaceful transfer of power sealed the deal. I cannot support anyone who had anything to do with that, especially those who STILL push the conspiracies.
