Letter: Observations of the 2016 election

I would like to start by stating that I am a registered Democrat and have been since 1955. However, I do not vote a straight ticket. I have not voted for a Democratic presidential nominee since JFK. He is the last of the true Democrats. He afforded opportunity to the masses.

After his assassination, a list of awful people followed who only want to perpetrate the taking over of our party and our country. They found by offering goodies and giveaways to people who were downtrodden and in despair, regardless of color or ethnic background, that they could secure their vote and retain their power over the masses. They have taken over our party and have misrepresented themselves to the people who don’t realize who they (evil and plotting) are and have used them for their own self-interest.

The party that I joined at the ripe old age of 18 was a party of the working man. Please note, I said working. People now of all colors, white, black and Latino and others, have bought into their diabolical plan. I learned at a very young age growing on a farm/ranch in western Kansas, that there are no freebies. Someone has to pay and all that does is increase the price of goods and services to those who pay, even the poor and downtrodden.

In the election that has just finished, the people have spoken and risen up to debunk these people and have taken back our country from the likes of Clinton and her mercenaries. Our last eight years has seen this country deteriorate to what it is today.

Like it or not, Donald Trump is our president. He won the election and we will abide by it.

My only hope is we move forward together as a country and throw our differences aside. Hopefully, we have burned the Clinton legacy once and for all and that they will not rise from the ashes.

In closing, I would like to state that I have seen a lot in my 79 years and I’m proud to have voted for Donald Trump. God bless America and guide her on the path of future greatness.

Thank you!

STEVE SEBELIUS: Was Trump campaigning or trolling in Nevada?

If Trump’s visit was primarily a political stunt rather than a legitimate attempt to court the Nevada vote — and there’s reason to suspect it was — then give his campaign credit for a well-played weekend.

Will America be the next great civilization to fall?

As I watch and read the news reports of the shooting of the police officers in Compton, California, my faith in humankind’s future has doubts creeping around the edges of my thoughts.
