To the Editor:

I write you that I am so tired of being lied to that I could scream. All these lies floating out there are said as trustworthy statements, often with no substantive ideas to support or, even more egregious, are proven to be factually untrue by public reports. Lies built one upon another meant to make the public believe in something other than what is real, reasonable and rational. They deceive.

I am impelled to speak, to voice my opinion. The lies must be met head-on by the electorate, the “we the people.” We have a way to do this, but do it we must or we lose the treasure of our nation, our way of living and our democracy.

This way is enshrined in the vote which is the voice of the people. This voice must be heard during this national 2020 election of a candidate to the office of the president of the United States of America. It is necessary to vote a person into the office. So, please vote.

I know my vote, but that’s beside the point. We all have opinions which differ and support our personal reasons to vote in support of a candidate. I most assuredly am not telling you how to vote. I’m just urging you to vote.

It is a person’s way of saying to one’s self and to the world that we want to sustain our country and work toward “a more perfect union.” 

We want always to vote. It’s our freedom at work.

Thanks for your consideration.
