Lois Eisenberg | Reserving the Right to Speak Out

If a politician has a faulty character and it is a proven fact, then may we mention the flaw as the media does or the press?

The media and the press have been very vocal about the president’s negative ways, reporting the facts and truth to the dismay of many.

We do have freedom of the press and speech, and when the truth is the truth and a fact is a fact, I believe one has a right to express the truth and facts.

I totally agree about personal name calling or a petty remark to a comment that you don’t agree with, especially when you don’t know the person and there have been no negative reports about that person, only in the minds of the responding commentator.

When a person is in public office they are open to criticism, especially when they are destroying the democracy of the United States.

I cherish this country with all my heart, and I do respect the office of the presidency. That doesn’t mean that I have to respect the person who occupies the Oval Office when he or she has a negative agenda that is so harmful as to hurt my fellow citizens physically or mentally.

I have lived in this glorious country of ours for 90 years. Yes we have had our ups and downs, but not to the extent of what we are going through now.

When the truth is proven and facts are proven I will voice my opinion with a clear consensus and refrain from petty name calling, such as a person’s physical being or his or her family.

When the truth is being distorted and it is known as a lie, or when a fact is being twisted, etc., and when that person or any of their ilk do the same, I must speak out.

I’m hoping that this letter meets with the approval of The Signal, and I’m always open to constructive criticism.
