For the third time, someone came onto my property and stole my Hillary Clinton sign. From what I've heard, I'm not the only victim. Quite a few signs were stolen recently in what appears to be a coordinated effort.
I realize that in Hempfield, I am in the minority in my support of Hillary. But I believe in the process. Everyone has the right to support his/her candidate without fear of having her property damaged or stolen. I do not know of any Donald Trump signs being stolen, so I can only assume that Trump supporters are behind the thefts.
My question to them is this: What gives you the right to believe you are above the law? Do you somehow feel justified in the support of your “law and order” candidate that you are no longer bound by the laws of our community? Do conservatives no longer consider “thou shalt not steal” part of their value system?
I was a Republican for 42 years. It is this type of mentality, coupled with the meanness and hatred that has become the cornerstone of conservatism, that chased me away from the party. Regardless of whom you support in this campaign, we should all respect one another's beliefs and choices, not to mention property.
Consider your actions before you commit another crime. In the meantime, kindly stop trampling my flower bed.
