Rationale for Clinton vote was not convincing
After reading numerous articles from people supporting Hillary Clinton, I have come to the conclusion that if they weren’t so laughable they would be scary. The letter from Mr. Fred Corriher (“The trouble with Trump,” Nov. 4) was well written, but I disagreed with him in every aspect.
My question is how can you support Clinton? I could certainly list items about Trump that I do not approve of. The list would be long but nothing like the list for Clinton.
Personally, you don’t have to look far to see numerous reasons not to support or vote for Clinton. She has lied in a hearing about the email situation, the FBI said she was extremely careless with classified information, this classified information may have leaked to hostile countries, the Clinton Foundation continues to be under FBI investigation, she supports late-term abortions, she wants to raise taxes, she wants free tuition to state universities and, lastly, she wants to open borders even more. Is this someone that you can place your trust in by electing her president of the United States?
Neither Trump nor Clinton can cure what ails this country. Only God can, and my prayer is that we turn back to Him, and soon.

Time to keep promises
How did we get President-elect Donald Trump? For years both political parties were busy making promises but had no intention of keeping them. It took a mob-mentality man to wake us up. That’s how we got President-elect Donald Trump. I pray he listens to the voters who got him elected, and I pray he makes an all-out effort to deliver on his many promises.
