Letter to the editor: Saving Democracy
I’ve been perplexed about the turn of events coming to light, about how many of our elected officials had a hand in trying to overthrow our government, and the 2020 election results, right here in Pennsylvania!
Now these elected officials are sworn to protect our democracy, and were doing just the opposite creating fake electors, and then tried to steal an election, knowing all along how illegal it was.
Call me old-fashioned, but if someone commits a crime they should go to jail! Trying to overthrow your government is a crime, no matter what your party affiliation is. Treason against our government, I believe, still carries a death sentence.
These elected officials cannot be trusted anymore. I am a Republican, and I can’t see myself voting for them. You know if the Democrats pulled this kind of stuff we would be setting the country ablaze. It seems like nobody can tell the truth anymore. That’s not the world I want to live in, and neither should you. We deserve better!
