I enjoyed Ray Holbrook’s guest column (“Don’t vote for Democrats in November election,” The Daily News, July 12). Blame everyone except yourself.

As a gay man, I defended this country during the war. Not like your president.

Thank you for your service, "Dom". Military service is not a pre-requisite for the presidency. Just ask Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Franklin Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Calvin Coolidge, Warren Harding, Woodrow Wilson, William Taft, Grover Cleveland, Martin Van Buren, John Q. Adams and John Adams who were not in the military. But as president, each, including Donald Trump served as the military's commander in chief.
By the way, Judge Ray Holbrook served in the US Navy during World War II. After the war he attended Texas A&M University receiving a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering and won the Engineering Achievement Award. At A&M he was an All-American Athlete holding records in 440 yard dash and mile relays. While a chemical engineer in Texas's Monsanto plant he attended the University of Houston Law School graduating in 1959. He went from Monsanto's Senior Process Engineer to Patent Attorney with his degree.
(La Marque Times, March 17, 1966 page 10)
So "Dom", Judge Holbrook is a one of your fellow veterans.
US veterans voted for Donald Trump by a 2 to 1 margin in 2016 over Hillary Clinton.

Trump also received a majority of active duty military votes.

I am amazed after a year and a half how so many are still bu** hurt over Trump winning the Presidency. And the level of angst is nowhere close to that of Obama's. All I have to say is get ready for 6 1/2 more years of being miserable or learn to deal with it, he isn't going anywhere. #MAGA

The 'resistance' doesn't even believe in the sage words of their (twice) defeated candidate.

I do Dom, it's my civic responsibility and privilege. I vote for the candidate that best represent my views and opinions, same with bond issues as well.

I have zero idea what homosexuality has to do with it, but, you are correct that as far as we know President Trump is not a homosexual....
