Linda: “Why does Joe Biden want to destroy us and America, the country that has given him and his family, everything?”

COMMENT: You cite not one word of evidence which shows this to be true.

“Why does he want us to be beholden to foreign countries for our energy?”

COMMENT: Biden’s Energy Policy Act of 2005 established renewable fuel standards, mandating a two-fold increase in the country's use of biofuels, and provided energy-related tax incentives totaling $14.5 billion, all to increase our energy independence. The current administration’s energy policy consists of a dual objective: addressing climate change and reestablishing American leadership within the fight against climate change and in key sectors of the future low-carbon economy, while promoting energy independence here at home because green energy is not an import.

“Why does he bow at the alter[sic]of the Green New Deal that cannot supply us with the energy we need?”

COMMENT: A 2015 analysis conducted by researchers at Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley found that 100% wind and solar power — in conjunction with energy efficiency, energy storage and other advances to complement renewables — could provide electricity to the continental U.S. more reliably than the current system by 2050, and at lower projected costs. The potential supply is about 30 times that of current business-as-usual with fossils. Note that nuclear power is not even needed in the real-world scenario but should be rapidly developed as well which would add even more de-carbonized energy and independence.

“Why is he destroying our farmlands by demanding green energy usage?”

CCOMMENT: Farmland in the United States decreased by 31 million acres over a 20-year period, according to the American Farmland Trust (AFT). “Farms Under Threat: The State of America’s Farmland” is the most comprehensive assessment to date of farmland in the U.S. and reveals that the actual loss of farmland amounts to twice the previously documented land due to expanding U.S. cities and towns. Urban sprawl has absorbed agricultural land for commercial, residential, and industrial development. While urban development converted mostly cropland, low-density residential development took an equal toll on cropland and pastures. This has been going on for decades and predates Biden. It has nothing to do with green energy.

“Why is he destroying our industries by sending them overseas?”

COMMENT: He is not. American presidents have no authority or ability to move American industries abroad. Historically, American businesses have moved parts or all of their enterprises overseas because of cheap labor, inconsequential climate laws, scalability, and taxes. The motivation is, as always, profit at all costs.

“Why does he open the border to let everyone, including those that hate us, enter without restrictions?”

COMMENT: He does not. President Biden’s strategy is centered on the basic premise that our country is safer, stronger, and more prosperous with a fair and orderly immigration system that welcomes immigrants, keeps families together, and allows people across the country—both newly arrived immigrants and people who have lived here for generations—to more fully contribute to our country. His actions so far have been supportive of that policy.

“Why does he allow sanctuary cities that breed crime, drug abuse, mental illness, and death?”

COMMENT: Under the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Federal government “may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program.”

‘Why does he allow wokeness in our schools to damage our children?”

COMMENT: Wokeness: “a state of being aware, especially of social problems such as racism and inequality.” You have not defined the damage you allude to nor provided any data that it actually harms children. Moreover, you fail to show that a president has the authority to change local curricula.

“Why does he and his party demand the defunding of the police?”

COMMENT: False! They don’t. Fact-check by Reuters: “A video advertisement on Facebook from the America First Action SuperPAC misrepresents Joe Biden’s platform for criminal justice reform, claiming that he wants to defund the police. Biden has in fact resisted demands from liberal activists to defund police departments, instead proposing a $300-million investment in policing.” The DNC has no such platform plank. Activists in this matter do not represent the DNC.

“Why does he demand we bow to the altar of the CDC in overseeing our own medical needs?”

COMMENT: Individuals often do not have the requisite medical training to set national policy concerning the best response to pandemics. If private parties may do so, the inevitable result is the faster spread of the disease. The CDC and its staff are among the world’s premiere agencies regarding epidemiology and virology and are best placed to craft the most effective policies regarding pandemic responses.

“Why does he demand absolute worship of him and his political party? Why does Joe hate us?”

COMMENT: He does neither and you have not posted any data which show that he does.

Excellent response, Ron. You have provided a model for any side to support their argumens.

Who is this Linda Gilbertson and how can the White Mountain Independent post such a hate filled letter for our area to read. Don't we have enough Trumpers, "Let's Go Brandon" and Confederate Flags flying on the back of trucks, Machine gun decals and gun carrying nutcakes in the area who don't need more provoking to violence ?
