On showing respect

— — — —  

Dear editor:

As we approach the final days of this election process, we all need to remember the dignity of the office of Office of the President. It is one thing to dislike the person who holds that office, but I cannot tolerate those who make a mockery of that office. Liberal or conservative, we must honor the position. After all, the person in that office was elected by Americans.

I fondly remember going with my parents to see the motorcade with Eisenhower going through Moultrie. That was so impressive to me. Paul and Christine, my parents, made sure that I understood the dignity of the office . That was the beginning of my love for anything presidential. They made sure that was I aware of the things that our President did and the great country that he represented.

Please be careful with your online postings that show disrespect for that office. I recently saw a picture of our current President being compared to Hitler and Stalin. That picture was reason I wrote this letter.

In closing, I encourage you as citizens to vote. Voting is the best way to make changes.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
