Letter: Never seen a mess like country’s current state

Never seen a mess like our country’s current state

I have been to one World’s Fair, the top of Pikes Peak and watched, in person, a man stick his head in a gator’s mouth! But I have never seen a mess like this that our country is in! I understand the Democrats being upset to loose the White House, Senate and Legislature. I understand how the Republicans are upset that one of their regular politicians lost to an outsider.

For the Republicans who turned on their president and began acting like Democrats, it’s a deeper blow to their own party and presidency than anything else.

I don’t understand Americans who see but don’t see, hear but don’t hear and who would rather see our country taken over by an ultra rich group of men hiding behind the Democrats and main stream media, which is pulling their strings.

I don’t care if anyone agrees with me. I understand what is happening. I know the facts, and they speak for themselves. Anyone that listens to the main stream media and trusts what they hear will never know the truth. For anyone who does not realize that the Democratic Party are henchmen for the deep state, you haven’t been paying attention. You have been lied to for a long time.

It is not a question of being a Democrat or Republican or being right or wrong. It is about how much you care for your families, how closed-minded you allow yourself to be and about betting on your kids’ futures.

If you really believe in our Constitution, love this country and hold our country up to the standards of our Constitution, then you will accept life is as it is.

Donald Trump quit being a businessman when he was elected. He is our president. If you are with the Democratic Party, wait until the next election to make a change.

If you are with the Republican Party, stand united behind and with the president and support him.
