Letter to the editor: Honor, integrity & Trump
In response to Terry E. Swindell’s letter — “America’s self- destruction”: This is one of the best summations I have read concerning our current leadership.
His supporters say his bankruptcies don’t matter, cheating on his wives isn’t significant, comments about grabbing genitals (sexual assault) has no relevance, sex with prostitutes (while married) and clandestine payoffs are not a concern, regularly disrespecting a deceased POW and U.S. senator is not an issue, mocking a handicapped person is not significant, evading the draft is no big deal, asking Russia to locate Clinton emails during his campaign is a joke, golfing in Japan on Memorial Day while recently siding with a murderous dictator against a U.S. vice president doesn’t matter.
Hundreds of lies have no bearing. They knowingly compromise what is left of the integrity and honor of our nation because they are frightened and they despise what America is destined to become regardless of their petty efforts.
I would like to add a quote from Nelson Henderson that applies to Swindell’s acknowledgement of limited time left in America and his own mortality: “The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”
