I’m writing to express my complete agreement with Lisa Jochner’s letter of Oct. 22. I’m 77, have lived in this county for 40 years, have voted in every election, and read a lot of history. A democrat leadership is trying to take this country in a disastrous direction. Extreme liberalism, socialism, and Marxism have never worked in spite of their idealistic appeal to many. A small group ends up with all the power and everyone else suffers. A president is often a flawed person, so I will choose to vote instead for the principles and ideals that have made this country unique, worth preserving, and the country I love.
