Letter: Leaders, not liars 

How much more blatant can it get? Everything this President Trump has done has been out in the open, from demeaning women, shoving dignitaries on stage, lying continuously, being with Putin in Helsinki rather than our own Justice Department, his Charlottesville comments, and it goes on and on.

Perhaps you can’t believe your eyes and ears because it seems so utterly evil and ridiculous. Believe it, it’s really happening, in plain sight. Your president has lied more than 8,000 times since taking office (proven lies).

From the denial of climate change, funding cuts for the EPA, cost of medicines and the cost of health care, ignoring the needs of folks affected by hurricanes, tornadoes, fires and floods, this president is destroying our very existence of the American way of life.

Last, but not least, is the gun issue and nothing being done to look at the part the NRA plays in the murder of so many of our young people and other citizens.

I’m praying for the young, intelligent open minded people of our great America to get out there in this next election to demand and accomplish what is needed to keep America great. I am an elderly person who remembers the greatest generation who believed in honesty, integrity, civility and just good old common sense. We are in great need of leaders, not liars, in our government.
