To the Editor:

Philippians 2:14-16

Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Wow! Watching the ads and debates of the personnel running for the presidential office amazes me and surely brings that Bible verse to light. They are saying they have come to clean up the corruption in Washington. Have you ever seen the corrupt clean up the corruption, seriously? The Democrats are the majority in Washington right now, so are they saying they are the corrupt and are going to clean themselves up? I don’t want to see how that works.

One socialist Democrat is going to take our tax money and hand over $1,000 a month to everyone over 18 years of age, so now more people are not working so our taxes have to be raised again. Can you guess who will pay this? This is all socialism, and it does not work, people.

Some say they are working to give the vote back to the people. Did I fall asleep somewhere, as We the People do have the vote and are winners of every election as long as we vote? Then when they tell you this program is funded by the government, I truly pray you do not buy into that, as the government has no funds, they only have our tax dollar to pay their high overburdening salaries. Term limits?

One or more of the loose-cannon persons running even wants to stop our Second Amendment right to bear arms passed by Congress Sept. 25, 1789, ratified Dec. 15, 1791. The first 10 amendments form the Bill of Rights. A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Wake up, people, the problem is the person, not the gun. We have a mental-health-issue problem, not a gun problem. And now Congress wants to limit the president on using arms so it has to be approved by Congress to act. What about a nuclear bomb headed our way? That may sound way off for now, but that is where we are headed if these people get elected.

One person running declares it always comes down to the economy in any election, and we need to elect them to fix the economy. Our economy is the best it has been in decades, so I’m not sure what they want to fix.

It appears the Democrats are really depressed that they lost in 2016 and they want to turn our government into a socialist government so they can be king of the world, America be darned, it would appear. One person running also says if we give Trump eight years, we will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation. What? That don’t make any sense as we have had many, many presidents, and the political agenda swings back and forth the same as the pendulum of the clock.

Oh wait, the Democrats have the pendulum swinging way to the left and are afraid we want everything back to center as our vote indicates. If we win, we may learn to work together again for the good of America or even return to the people and country of God we once were.

Even at President Trump’s worst, he is far better for us than anything I hear coming from the far-left-pendulum swing of the socialist left Democratic Party.

Have you ever noticed those of the Democratic Party pushing for impeachment talk longer and more than anyone else in the whole proceeding? Mom always told me those talking the most were usually saying the least and usually were wrong with no actual facts. The truth is that if we hear things over and over, we begin to believe them.

Please, I pray, don’t fall for this old one-sided con game that is being played out at our expense right now. Kneel for the cross, stand for the flag, support our Constitution, throw out the phony impeachment, put God back in charge and we will be back on His path of greatness.

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
