A letter received & my answer to it

A letter I recently got:
The main vice of capitalism is the uneven distribution of prosperity.
The main vice of socialism is the even distribution of misery.
Isn’t it interesting that virtually everything Trump does is in the interest of Americans and the development of a greater, more successful, more secure America? But in contrast, everything the Dems do is to destroy Trump and regain power and control for their own self-aggrandizement and the return to the path to serfdom.
I guess that's why the world is laughing about Trump
and why most world leaders - especially those who were
good allies of the USA before he took office - are
treating him like a bad mannered child?
Self-aggrandizement is all Trump manages to achieve.
A typical case of mirroring one's weaknesses and
blaming others for the decay he & the Republicans are
Sorry, but a person like Trump, unable to admit
a mistake and using his lackeys to back up his sharpie
drawings on a map, is laughable at best.
Do you realize that official travel around the world
has to stop at Trump-owned Hotels to fill his pockets?
That his daughter is sent on diplomatic missions instead
of career diplomats - missions she doesn't have any
education for? His son-in-law wanted to sell manufacturing
secrets for atomic weapons to Saudi Arabia?
The Trump administration is pushing for a war against Iran
with fake evidence as Bolton used for attacking Iraq?
To just state it once more:
We ¹ are a country with social security & health care for all,
tuition-free colleges and a social safety-net supporting people
for longer than two years if needed .... and we still are
thriving among the top of the top ten of countries in the world.
Socialism is what good Christians - other than those
in the United States apparently - refer to as
helpfulness, charity and care in times of need.
I think it is a good thing that I pay a little more taxes for
a purpose like this instead for the upkeep of 800 (!)
military bases around the world with all the polluting logistics
But what do I know .... I didn't inherit billions and didn't go bankrupt several times.
