A rising tide floats all boats

Written by 

To the Editor:

The column written by Martin Dyckman in the Jan. 3 issue of The Smoky Mountain News attacking President Trump appeals only to the lowest animal instincts of jealousy and envy of others. Therein lies the reason I left either political party and am now amongst the growing Independent movement of people who think for themselves and don’t need a political ideology. And certainly not the sick ideology espoused by Mr. Dyckman.

Mr. Dyckman may be intelligent and I must assume he is, but nowhere do I see any evidence of wisdom on his part, nor do I see he is a student of anthropology or has a degree in psychology. His inferred criticism of the 149 million Americans who are happy to see their savings grow under President Trump is disheartening to say the least. Or, his criticism of the rich who already pay 80 percent of all federal taxes while he only pays a paltry 3 percent is outrageous.

President Trump knows a rising tide will float all boats, and that’s what his ideology is all about.
