Re: “How can voters support Dems’ deceit?” by Johnny Jakey, Tuesday:
In response to the letter about Democrats’ deceit, what is wrong with the writer? Does he never watch news, read a newspaper or obtain general or political information from any source beyond Fox News or the right-wing internet?
Donald J. Trump has turned our once esteemed democratic nation and constitutional form of government into a joke “heard around the world.” It appears that Trump is being led by Vladimir Putin rather than our intelligence and law enforcement services. Our traditional allies have often been ignored or even denigrated, with praise going to Russia.
Trump is a pathological liar, uncouth misogynist, lacking in empathy and morals and a fantastic salesman who has effectively brainwashed a lot of very good and decent people. The swamp is getting deeper. Mexico has not paid for a wall to be built. His policies will damage the environment for future generations. They will damage our cherished democracy, the visions of fairness and inclusion we have all benefited from and much more.
If you want more of the same, go ahead and vote for him. It’s your choice as guaranteed by Amendments XV, XIX, and XXVI of the Constitution of the United States.
