    With opponents like this, I’ll sleep better tonight:

    Support for troops has to be visible

    Often I am reminded that not all of Huey Long died on the capitol steps in Baton Rouge, La. Huey Long was a Democratic, populist demagogue whose main goal in life was to separate money from those who earned it and give to those who did not.

    Roberta Waddle’s letter to the editor (“Support of veterans is more than words,” Sept. 10) is a case in point. Her attempted excoriation of Sen. Elizabeth Dole is filled with mild invectives attempting to rally her fellow travelers at the North Carolina Peace and Justice Coalition, who most certainty do not support the troops.

    Waddle’s main objection is that Dole refuses to vote the socialistic line of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.

    When I am at the counter-rally to the anti-war rally at Rowan Park, I hear the “international Socialists” — could they be Communists? — chanting “No more troops; no more war.” This in no way supports the troops.

    So when Roberta Waddle says support the troops, she means in a George Soros or Huey Long sort of way.

    This is perfectly in line with the modern liberal thinking of fewer rights to individuals (unless they are given by the government, not God). Liberals simply want us to be a nation unarmed, unprotected and willing to kowtow to any foreign thought or actions because we cannot defend ourselves.

    Kind of like France.

    Ralph Reagan, Cumberland County Republican chairman,

    Full disclosure: Roberta Waddle’s a friend.

    You reckon he means the same France without whose help there would be no USA?

    He means the same France that would not exist without the United States help.

    Although I completely disagree with the comments made by Mr Reagan.

    Just because they support peace and want an end to the war, does not mean they do not support the troops!
