Lies, deceit, hypocrisy

To the editor:

Political behavior continues to be disgusting! However the political winds blow, these vultures are on board to make the most of what they view as being an opportunity to further their own ambitions. Who they step on or who they destroy has no bearing on their actions. Winston Churchill probably said it best when he opined; "Over time we have advanced in every area except morality."

It's shameful the way that some political idiots have been treating Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, as if there is nothing else pressing in Washington that needs immediate attention. Gen. Flynn has spent his entire adult life protecting and defending America. He has served us with honor and distinction. And he has earned the respect and admiration of all true Americans. This is not to judge and defend General Flynn's actions if, in fact, he has violated some rules and regulations.

This is to simply say that this general deserves better than innuendo and assumption all leading to public ridicule. The investigation should have been done quietly, behind closed doors, and without some elected officials making accusations simply because the disruption of the Trump Presidency is on their agenda.

General Flynn has a family ... a wife and children and more. If it was a misstep, that should be dealt with only when there is absolute proof and not before. Dwight Eisenhower hit the nail on the head when he said, "A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both."

And that's where we are today with Washington elected officials experiencing the lowest public approval in history, only interested in placing politics above principle - and America is suffering as a result.

There's no doubt that Obama left the office of the presidency in an awful mess. Our cities were on fire. Our police were being disrespected. Our veterans were mistreated, suffering and dying. Killing babies in the womb was considered normal and selling body parts had developed into a new and profitable industry.

We gave money to our enemies and turned our backs on our friends. Our military was depleted and demoralized. And we treated the terrorists as if this was a 21st Century phenomenon that would disappear if we didn't name it.

When President Trump took office America was in a state of total disarray. Americans realized this and Mr. Trump, promising to change course and make America great again, was elected President.

The Democrats, instead of admitting the truths, have made attempts to disrupt all the good that is happening.

It's shameful and it's time for these un-American wackos to wake up, grow up, and stop making fools of themselves. America deserves better!
