Letter: Democrats must stop trying to derail Trump

Democrats must stop trying to derail Trump

I am sure that I am not the only one dismayed at what I see and hear going on in our world today. I have been a lifelong Democrat, but no more! When a politician from Missouri states, “I hope Trump is assassinated,” then it is way beyond time for faithful Americans to step up. That representative should be immediately dismissed. Vandals to public property should be jailed and/or fined and parents and teachers should return to teaching the principles that earlier generations were raised with – love for country, family and especially God. If one truly believes in these fundamental ideals, most of this craziness would stop.

Americans need to take back our country and our schools. We need to gain control over what professors are teaching and politicians are spouting. Let’s elect new representatives to Congress who are concerned with the people they represent and not what the party line/leaders dictate. The current Democrats’ sole purpose seems to be disrupting the Trump administration at the cost of the common people; i.e., Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.

We also need to step up and hold accountable people who advocate or accept speech against our president, sitting down during the playing of our national anthem or destruction of public property with seemingly no repercussions. We must not tolerate disrespect to peaceful debate over diverse ideologies, or disrespect to the police or any president. It’s time to return to some of the old ideals that made this country great before it’s too late!
