Reader's View: Consider candidates’ actions, not words

Our government is being overtly taken over, it seems, by people who want to control your way of life.

It's time to vote again. This year it's more critical than ever for citizens to speak up for their choice of leadership.

If you have been paying attention, you are aware of the attempted coup on Jan. 6, 2021 and the recovery of classified documents from Mar-a-Lago more recently. Our government is being overtly taken over, it seems, by people who want to control your way of life. That is not as the Constitution intended. Their propaganda is full of lies and threats. Their methods are devious and destructive.

Please vote and consider carefully the qualifications of the individuals and whose leadership they choose to follow. Don't be misled by what they say but how they have performed and will likely continue to perform.

Letters to the editor are a critical part of the community dialogue, and the News Tribune attempts to publish all letters of opinion meeting our requirements.
Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility. Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.
With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous, or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.
We will consider exclusive local view columns of about 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
Email submissions to: letters@duluthnewscom.

Why would he deserve a pedestal over the people who have actually accomplished good things to make Duluth a better place to live?
