Concerned Americans need to speak out | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

I am writing because I am increasingly concerned by what is happening to this wonderful country.

We are now governed by a group that demonstrates time and again how little they are concerned with the rule of law. It seems that on an almost daily basis we are subjected to a new scandal. The people who put the person who presently occupies the Oval Office where he is today have been silent in the face of those who are relentlessly seeking to destroy the freedoms on which this country was founded.

I urge people of good will to stay silent no longer. It is time for freedom-loving and God-fearing people to speak out in support of those freedoms that have made this country the envy of the world I am urging your readers to insist that their voices be heard.

Please write congressional leaders, even if they are not in your district, and tell them that we the people of these United States will no longer tolerate these attacks on our fundamental freedoms.
