Letter to the editor: Short memories

According to many people, President Trump is inept, a dictator, mentally unstable, morally corrupt and a horrible role model for children.

Fox News is a conservative, bigoted propaganda channel using false information, and if you voted for Trump you are considered to be a racist, bigot, hypocrite with the morals of an alley cat. Don't any Democrats and even old diehard Republicans want America to be great again?

All those men and women who died serving our country in over 200 years must be spinning in their graves with what is happening in our country today. With modern technology, cameras everywhere capturing every move you make, have Trump under a microscope 24/7.

Evidently, our esteemed politicians in Washington, D.C., have short memories going back to the escapades of former presidents over the years. John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton were notorious for their sexual antics in the White House, but they were forgiven, put on pedestals and idolized.

Today, if a conservative president tried that, they would be raked across the coals, tarred and feathered and driven out of the country. If you choose only to believe the constant negatives that are being served up by the far left and refuse to recognize that unemployment is the lowest it has been in over 40 years, strangling regulations thrown out, employment up for blacks and Hispanics, the economy booming and we are no longer letting our allies use us as a floor mat, then you evidently agree with President Obama that we are not an exceptional nation with too many skeletons hanging in our closets.

If so, this Fourth of July, go to a military cemetery with all its white crosses and tell those silent fallen heroes their fight was in vain. Freedom is not free. God save America.
