Parents and the election

Dear Editor:

In regard to the letter concerning Halloween, I’d be more worried about what my child was watching on TV or the internet than I would be about them dressing up and going out trick-or-treating.

The problem is not the children, it is what their parents are allowing them to be taught in schools and what the parents have given up — their parenting duty. You make the decisions that will shape their morals and character. Stop letting the government do what you should be doing and do it without any excuses.

There is an election on Nov. 8. Are you prepared to do your parental duty? To make the best selection of who will lead this generation and affect future generations or are you one of the people who believe that there is no choice but Trump or Clinton?

I can tell you now that no matter which one of those two wins the election, your children and grandchildren will be the real losers. Those two people are on a train that will take this nation over a cliff. And what will that mean? Certainly the long-term effects will not be known in the present older generation’s lifetime, but those from 1 day of age to probably 75 years will certainly feel them.

Chaos is going to reign in this country (it has already started). People are going to be divided by an economic meltdown and racial tensions. We will probably also be in a world war — the likes of which no one has seen. And it will be on our shores and land, something that no one is prepared for because we are arrogant. The chaos that this present president has helped to create will carry over to the next president and if that person does not have the morals, will and backbone to at least make the effort to govern constitutionally, this country as we know it will cease to exist.

I will not vote for either Trump or Clinton! I believe there are other people who are more qualified and I will vote independently — even if I have to do a write-in vote.
