Election 2020: Time for a change in White House

Use your vote to send a candidate this presidential election year that will stand firm on his pledges and promises after the election is over. The only way to defeat bad government is to go to the polls. President Trump’s promises have gone unheeded, so our nation needs new leadership.

We do not need our country headed down the the wrong way on a freeway, as it seems to be going. Things in our country are out of control.

President Trump blames everyone else when things don’t turn out his way. He must be afraid of the consequences of truth. Trump should not have shifted federal dollars to building a wall along the Mexican border. Too much was spent on the wall that could have been used to fight Covid-19.

Trump is the third president in U.S. history to be impeached. He blocked U.S. military aid to Ukraine in an effort to have Joe Biden investigated.

The Rev. Tom Lambrecht, director of a conservative United Methodist magazine, said, “Our country would benefit from a return to the kind of civility and grace reflected in Jesus’ work.”

President Trump must be very insecure, trying to look strong, but he has built his career on racism. He has denied the Russian election meddling.

Those in the administration that stick to Trump like glue don’t dare act otherwise or they will be fired. They know he is lying. They are destroying democracy for all.
