Youths misguided by president’s deviance

In reference to a July 24 letter to the editor regarding a Democratic homosexual candidate:

Using the writer’s misplaced priorities, one could much more readily say that all who don’t protest our president’s deviance are similarly misguiding our youth.

Donald Trump is a man who brags about sexually abusing women; who lies openly on a daily basis; and accuses those who call him out as being unpatriotic. He is a man who uses hatred and vitriol to strengthen his political base.

He seems to believe that because he said it, it has to be true, even though he contradicts himself repeatedly. He brags about his immense wealth, yet refuses to submit to the transparency of revealing his tax returns, as his predecessors have done.

He also seems to think that people of a different color, especially if their names seem strange, are foreigners and should “go back to where they came from” — strange words for one whose wives are immigrants.

I would very much like to see a letter which protests our non-Christian, lying criminal in the White House! Without such protest, we must assume the writer believes it is OK to teach our youth the value system our president exhibits.

Like many other Christians, I have a problem with homosexuals and transgenders. The other side of that coin is that they, like me, “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, and among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

America is doing just fine? A week ago 22 people were killed in Ei Paso by a young man that was filled with hate by Trump. A week ago 9 people were gunned down in Dayton because Trump knells before the NRA and won't ban assault weapons. What freedoms are way up? people like Trump hate minority"s and try to destroy a woman's freedom to control her own body. The border was secured years ago as of 2016 there were 1 million less illegals in the US than there were in 2000. The Democrats in congress have tried to pass immigration reform but have been blocked by Trump at every turn. Climate change is destroying the earth and Trump does nothing about it. Wages are stagnant or falling after Trump"s huge tax cut for the rich. The IRS says the middle class had to pay 90 billion more in taxes this year. We are headed into a bad recession because of Trumps foolish trade wars. Unemployment is good but that is because of the stimulus that was pushed through way back in 2009. Obama had 75 straight months of solid job growth a trend that continues to this day. Pasley must live on Mars or he is just delusional one. Sincerely David Rau

And yet in spite of all the lies you've told here, America is doing just fine. Minority and women quality of life is way up, freedoms are way up, our border is becoming more secured on a daily basis, congress has been brought to a point where they must address immigration reform, wages are way up, unemployment way down, I can go on and on.

The only thing keeping us from coming together now are snowflakes like yourself. Thanks a lot for nothing.
