Letter: US voters must reject authoritarianism | Letters
This country had really taken a bad turn under corrupt and authoritarian leadership.
You have crazy people running around with assault rifles looking for trouble, killing people and pretending to defend themselves. I have a feeling that a “wrongful death” trial is coming up, so don’t relax too much.
There is a shortage of police officers. If you want to run around playing police, why not just join the department? But we’ve all seen the outcome of the Rittenhouse case even before the verdict was read. It’s sad, but that’s what this country has become. And you’ve got some deranged so-called pastors claiming that 45 is the real president and how God will restore him to power. But get this, 45 must want it.
I didn’t know there were so many nuts in this country until the hate rhetoric of the ’45s brought them out. Listening to some of these false prophets, if the God that I know and love thinks is doing His will, then it’s time for me to go back to my Bible and resort to atheism.
But on another more serious note, it’s astonishing how the newly formed Fascist Party can give tax breaks to the dirty rich and then manipulate the poorest in their party into getting off the hook. Real men have always been doing this – all we want is equal pay for equal work. But through this pandemic, the rich got richer. Some have even made space flights just for the fun of it. I don’t hate the rich, but God blesses us so that we can bless others.
But if you have a pastor who, like the old Republican Party, continues to perpetuate the “Big Lie,” grab your family and leave this congregation. God doesn’t like liars, and if you can’t tell when someone is lying to you, you’re in serious trouble. But if we are to survive as a democracy, we have to show up and vote against an authoritarian regime. Apathy and complacency can cause this country to endure again what happened in 2016.
The former Republican Party had no problem passing expense bills for 45, no matter what the cost. Now that he’s a Democrat in the Oval Office, they want to pretend they care about the deficit again.
False prophets come out of the woods. Read your Bible for yourself and don’t rely on a egotistical interpretation of a nutcase who has never been called by God.
