Letters to the Editor

Letter: Gaming the system

If the attempted Jan. 6 insurrection taught me anything, it taught me Republicans are about as hollow as my pockets the day after Christmas. They committed all that upheaval because they didn’t like the people’s choice for president, and now they’re attempting to modify the procedure for determining who wins. This, on its face, is so evil you automatically know who’s behind it — for the record, Republicans.

This behavior of changing the rules because you don’t want to better yourself is not new; it’s been tried and tested for generations, and it will show the resilience of those who speak the truth versus the desperation of those who repeat and back the “Big Lie” that the election was stolen. I’m convinced it all started when we allowed perception to outweigh reality.
