Letter To The Editor

From La Vern Isely


To the Editor:

Democrat candidate Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election by at least seven million votes or more on November 3, 2020. On January 6, 2021, Republican President Donald Trump’s Vice President, Mike Pence, was supposed to preside over the electoral college vote count, state by state, which started out as planned but soon erupted in chaos as protestors stormed the Capitol urged on by Republican President Donald Trump which was covered by about every major network.

It took almost all afternoon to get things under control and it ended up by Democratic President-elect Joe Biden going on TV urging Republican President Trump to go on national TV and tell the protestors to stop the siege because everybody should believe in law and order. It’s time for Republican President Trump to acknowledge that he lost the election.

Now, what started on January 6, 2021 will have to continue to conclusion to count the votes of the electoral college by Republican President Trump’s Vice President, Mike Pence, because on January 20, 2021, President-elect Joe Biden is supposed to be inaugurated as President of the United States and the election was not stolen as Republican President Donald Trump has said.

If the Republican Party wants to regain their statis, they must have a vigorous Republican Presidential Primary in 2024 and have a number of candidates running with different views of how a democracy must work. Not what took place on January 6, 2021 when our country liked like a banana republic.

Looking on the brighter side, on February 16, 2021, there will be a primary for Green County Judge and one can vote for whoever they think is the right candidate and we believe Jane Bucher sounds like the best candidate.

Let’s all look for better days ahead in 2021, particularly with the COVID 19 pandemic as well as other problems.
