Kracht: have to realize why the signs are there'
To the Editor:
This letter is in response to the thumbs down on political signs on South Freeman Street. First, I would like to thank this newspaper for bringing attention to them. There have been a lot more people driving by and looking at them. Also, I would like to thank the people for the overwhelming support for the signs since it was printed in the paper.
But you have to realize why the signs are there. They were put up after 13 of our brave service men and women were killed in Afghanistan, as a direct result of Joe Biden and his administration’s disastrous decisions on the pullout of that country. So, for those who have a problem with the signs you are saying that you supported this?
More reasons why the signs are there:  The inflation that is destroying the country. The cost of everything is on the rise and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. This is a direct result of printing money that we don’t have, and injecting it into the economy. Now this administration wants to do it again with more money we don’t have. Then they tell us that taxes are not going to go up. So, for those of you who have a problem with the signs you are saying you support this?
The Russian collusion Hoax. Now everyone knows it was nothing but a bunch of lies! Hillary Clinton, Jerry Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Maxine Waters and most of the news media all lied to the American people and congress. Isn’t lying to congress a crime? How much of our tax dollars were wasted on this? 
So, for those of you who have a problem with the signs, shouldn’t your anger be directed to those who deliberately lied to you?
Socialism. When this administration took over,  they said that they don’t support socialism. But everything they have done tells us different. To the people who think socialism isn’t so bad. How much of my hard-earned money do you feel is your fair share? This is how I explained socialism to my kids. One of you will get $10 to clean the bathroom, but you have to give $7 to the ones that didn’t help. Does it seem right?
Since the Biden administration took over, the Taliban got a country and our military equipment. Russia got a pipeline for oil. China has a strengthened military. Illegal immigrants got a free path into the U.S. American citizens got inflation, high gas prices and increased crime. Are there really people out there who think this is going well?
Freedom is the right of other people to do things you do not approve of. So,  to this newspaper and the people who have a problem with the signs, why didn’t you just come talk to me about it? You don’t want to hear the facts?
Mert Kracht,
Editor’s note: The Star Herald gave a “Thumbs Down” to the expletive, “F - - -,” spelled out on the banner, not to the political persuasion of the banner. Since the editorial, the expletives on the banner are reportedly shortened to abbreviations.
