Speak Out: On the decline

Readers reacted to a recent letter by Lonnie Brewer headlined “Decline of Oval Office.”

• The entire country is declining. The idea of education has run amok. No one is being taught to debate or disagree or think for themselves. Idiocracy was not an instruction manual! — Yvonne Cole Herrmann

• Yeah Trump’s been president for 2 1/2 years and he’s the cause of all the problems in this country? How funny. The career politicians are the cause! Just look at how the country was 10 years ago before Obama took office.. Yes there was division but nothing like now. The left were given a permission slip under Obama. — Maureen McCartan Harris

• Yeah, how quickly “we” forget. Before Obama we had two unpaid wars going on and a stock market that was crashing. Obama helped millions get health care while turning around the stock market. Trump has given us an exploding deficit so he could give tax cuts to the rich. No better health care, no prescription drug price reductions, no infrastructure, no clean air or water, no Paris accord, or Iran deal or even Korea deal and how about those China tariffs? Yeah MAGA.— William Mazzariello

• Like all the socialist Democrats, he obfuscates facts with an incessant flurry of fictitious and meaningless “statistics” and fractions. This hate, egged on by the DNC and mainstream media will never allow people like him to see how the real “dregs of society” that Joe Biden espouses are eager to destroy our country. Donald Trump provided the country of our Founding Fathers a respite of mind control and communism. He has done more for the blue-collar patriots in three years than had been done in the last 30. — George Roof

• How can someone like yourself who is so proud of his military service support a man who dodged the draft with his wealth? A lot of what you said is false (or at the very least misrepresented) by the way, but don’t let facts get in the way of all your knee-jerk responses on these articles. Keep talking about gun rights and communism or socialism. When the baby boomers are all gone I guess it’ll be left to us millenials to pick up the pieces of what was once a great country. — Jeff Haycraft
