Letter: Democrats don’t recognize their own errors

Statements made recently on the opinion page moved me to respond.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made it abundantly clear from the day of President Donald Trump’s election as president of these United States of America that her agenda was to discredit and dispose of Trump.

Pelosi is a long term politician, looking for her own personal glory rather than serving “we the people.”

The Democratic Party didn’t impeach their fellow Democrat Bill Clinton during his time in office, despite many wrongdoings, both moral and devious matters.

Clinton, a Democrat, and former President Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat, “borrowed” money from the Social Security fund to balance their budgets. Those monies were never repaid into the Social Security fund.

Now, with all the illegal alien’s babies on our Social Security system and we, those who put money into the system, are being told that it will run out of money.

The money was paid into Social Security for retirement for citizens of the United States of America. Taking money out of the Social Security system to make themselves look good should be impeachable. But Democrats don’t see their own errors.
