Letter: Who will damage us least?

Our nation has experienced crises and turning points, beginning with the War of Independence, followed by the Civil War, WWII, the Civil Rights Act, and now we are at a turning point with possibly greater changes than ever in our history.

One party dominates by sheer voters registered. It has used its executive power to influence the Justice Department, the IRS, the Department of Homeland Security, ICE and the Border Patrol. It encourages sanctuary cities. It sends undocumented illegals into areas to influence voter registration – suing states that seek to require proper ID and failing to clean up voter registration rolls, thereby allowing fraudulent votes. The past party chairman, now governor of Virginia, is, by executive order, restoring voting rights to 206,000 convicted felons. This party advocates entitlements with no accountability, endeavors to rewrite our Constitution by judicial decisions and circumvent Congress by executive actions, pandering to their base, all with one determined aim: a single party nation. This is called “progressive liberalism” (a euphemism for socialism).

Both major political parties have defaulted in governing wisely and responsibly. It has come to a point of choice: who will do the least damage to our freedoms, endeavor to get our fiscal house in order and restore justice, civility and wise, cooperative leadership in our presidency? In my 83 years as an American I have never observed a more important time to give full attention to our great nation and the choices we will make at the polls.
