Constitution Blocks Election Fraud
Should the Founding Fathers have recognized that challenges to the Constitution or election results might occur? Maybe, if they had anticipated that future citizens and elected officials would defy the will of the voters, they would include more specific wording.
Our Next Norwin Penn Trafford Meeting will focus on the Primary Results and how a poor Democratic turnout affects us all.
Come early for tea sandwiches and appetizers.
Our Democracy Depends On Citizen Involvement If It Is To Survive.
The majority of qualified voters did not vote in the Primary leaving less than 30 percent of our voters in charge of who will represent us.
Do not let a small group of people decide who represents you. Vote.
Then write to your Representatives and let them know what matters to you!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Letter of the Week
Elected Officials Should Be Held To The Same Standards ......
If the average person lies on an employment application, they can get fired. If they lie under oath, about their taxes, to the police, or on a mortgage application, it is a criminal offense; they can be fined and face jail time. Why do we hold our elected officials to a lesser standard? President Lyndon Johnson lied and over 58,000 American soldiers died in the Vietnam war. President Bush lied, and 4,000 to 5,000 American soldiers died in the Iraq war with many more wounded or suffering from PTSD. In both Vietnam and Iraq untold civilian lives were lost. Former President Trump lied about Covid. It is estimated that 40% of the over one million U.S. deaths could have been prevented if Trump had been honest.
Unlike the average person, none of these Presidents have been held accountable for their lies. These deceptions had enormous consequences, far greater than fudging a mortgage application. There should be consequences commensurate to the damage of their lies. If lies cause pain and suffering or death to others, there should be accountability. Political dishonesty has become so pervasive; it has reached epic proportions and is tearing our country apart. People do not know what or who to believe. They have become angry and are lashing out at one another.
We must insist that our government and public servants act honestly and with integrity. They must be accountable for willful duplicity that causes harm. If it is a crime for us to lie to the government, then the same should be true when the government lies to us.
