Letters to the editor: Trump, Boise council resolution

Donald Trump

Make America great again. Get rid of the most unethical, immoral, dishonest person to ever be called POTUS.

While Trump is making daily headlines with his constant lies and accusations against those investigating his misdeeds, his appointed swamp rats are doing everything that they can to destroy the U.S.A. The Environmental Destruction Agency is repealing every regulation that they can to provide us with dirty air and water. The Department of War is flushing billions. We spend more on war than the next 10 countries combined. The Department of Home Schools/Private Schools is doing their best to destroy public schools. The Department of Fossil Fuel wants to burn more fossil fuel to help warm the atmosphere and enrich Trump’s supporters.

A recent U.N. study determined that “Trump administration’s policies designed to worsen poverty and inequality.” That report went to the U.N. Human Rights Council on June 18.

Trump is holding thousands of children hostage in an attempt to get Congress to fund his border wall, which he promised would be paid for by Mexico.

His tax bill is creating over a trillion per year in debt.

Your vote to send a Republican to Washington is a vote to support these policies.

City Council resolution

Recently I received an email from Boise City Council President Lauren McClean which stated that, “Last night the Boise City Council unanimously approved a resolution condemning the separation of children from their families at our border and signed a letter to our Congressional Delegation urging them to use their positions of leadership to stop this action that flies in the face of American values. I’m including the resolution so you can see it below.”

I was very impressed with the resolution and especially the hand-written note on it saying that it was unanimously approved. This went a long way toward restoring my faith in our country’s basic humanity following so much garbage coming out of Trump’s Washington. I forwarded that email to the circle of friends and relatives of my wife Barbara and I with the comment, “One of the important reasons that Barb and I choose to live here.”

Donald Trump

Trump said during the campaign, “What have you got to lose voting for me?” We’re losing everything, our democracy, our dignity, our morality, our respect, our lifelong allies and the list goes on. Trump is trashing our country and our rules of law. He was going to drain the swamp, instead he turned it into a sewer, declaring himself King Rat. In government class we learned this couldn’t happen as we had checks and balances. Those checks and balances are crumbling, and we Americans and our country are in trouble, deep trouble. We have spineless politicians who won’t speak up and are putting their jobs before their country. We the voters are the last line of defense. We can’t vote out Trump yet, but we sure can cut off his legs in the midterms. A vote for a Democrat is a vote to save America. If you can’t do that then don’t vote. Let’s make America sane again.
