LETTERS TO THE EDITOR – October 26, 2017

America as we once knew it

Dear Editor,

So much evidence has been discovered about Hillary, and former President Obama. So now what? Will justice be served, or will the Democrats once again get away with all their dirty deeds?
If justice is not handed down and correct punishment issued, then our constitution and all law books might as well be thrown away. Justice needs to be implemented even if protests and/or riots happen.
If justice is not served, it is my true feelings that America as we once knew it and what we know and have today will be flushed down the proverbial toilet with America becoming a communist country.
California has elections happening in 2018. Vote for candidates other than incumbents for state and federal lawmakers. Which brings to mind – shouldn’t there be an age limit for members of Congress? For example when a representative or senator reaches age 65, they should be required to retire.

Sincerely,

Nancy Eller, Hemet


Annex to Hemet? No, thanks

Dear Editor,

I can only speak for myself but I would strongly oppose an annexation by city of Hemet. In my opinion the city can’t even manage what it has and sucking more people into their cesspool is selfish and irresponsible.
Upper management is unstable to say the least, the police chief is on his way out, police officers are looking for brighter horizons elsewhere, and staffing levels in the Public Works Department are designed for the CURRENT amount of parks, surface streets, and road shoulder maintenance. Mr. Perciful claims faster response times? I hope and pray that the opportunity to prove that will never come!

Sincerely,

Craig Priest, Hemet


So many interesting topics last week

Dear Editor,

So many topics – so little space.
Question of the week: We shop in San Jacinto because we feel safer due to its lower crime rate compared to Hemet. Last week even Police Chief Dave Brown said crime is up in Hemet [in certain areas] since filling 18 full time positions. An added benefit to shopping in San Jacinto is not paying the additional 1 percent Hemet Measure U tax to stop crime in Hemet, which obviously isn’t working.
President Trump recently sent to Congress items concerning NAFTA, Dreamers, the budget, the Iran nuclear agreement and Obamacare funding. Congress has to do something about all of these before the end of the year, or Trump will. This is frightening.
Drug epidemic: Write senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris in Washington – these are the California senators who can change the law preventing the abuse enforcement against the opioid distributors. Mail to Dianne Feinstein: 331 Hart Senate Office Building Washington DC 20510. Mail to Kamala Harris: 112 Hart Senate Office Building Washington DC 20510. Tell them YOU are watching how they vote on drugs, so that you know how to vote for them.
Las Vegas shooting: Thanks, Rusty Strait, for your excellent reporting. Both articles were very interesting. Was there really only one shooter? It seems like automatic assault weapons for mass murder are supported in Washington, D.C. just like drugs. It’s a sad state of affairs for us all.

Sincerely,

Sue Savage, Hemet


The real problem with U.S. elections

Dear Editor,

Regarding last week’s opinion piece by Steve Gonzales, “The real problem with U.S. elections and how to fix them,” the author has it completely wrong. The Electoral College accomplished exactly what our founders intended in the 2016 election. They did not want a few very large states dictating policy for the whole country.
We have a perfect example today. It would be a total disaster if California and New York determined the direction of our country. Those two states are leading the nation into a death spiral. If California had its way, Hillary would have been president. Everyone with any intelligence knows she is incompetent and extremely corrupt. If she receives what she deserves from her illegal activities of her Clinton Foundation, etc., she will be spending time in jail soon.

Sincerely,

Ken Wolfe, Hemet
