LETTER: Voting for Trump to avoid destruction of our country

To the Editor:

In 1971, my wife and I welcomed a young couple from Venezuela into our home through International Thanksgiving Fellowship. I recall them telling us how beautiful their country was.

Today, Venezuela is terrible, with their people starving and young children dying of starvation and disease for lack of medical care. About 15 years ago the citizens of Venezuela believed the lies of Socialism that their government would give them everything. They surrendered their guns, freedoms, etc., and allowed a tyrannical dictatorship to take over. Today, they are powerless to remove that dictatorship.

I believe this year's election is for the soul of our country. The left and liberal media are intentionally lying to the American people. The Democrats took "Under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance at the DNC two times. I was appalled by the Russia hoax and the impeachment hoax that was all based on lies. Rep. Bustos and Sen. Durbin were part of the hoax. They must go. If Joe Biden and the Socialist Democrats get control of all the branches of government, it will be only a few years before our country as we now know it will be destroyed. Why would anyone (including (Democrats) vote to destroy our country? I do not want my grandchildren to have endure that.

Our country was founded on the principles of God's word, but today we have strayed from God and His word, even in many churches. Would God allow the U.S. to be destroyed? Well, He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah approximately 4,000 years ago for their wickedness.

I am 76 years old and I will be voting for President Trump and Republicans on Nov. 3 in hopes of preventing destruction of our beloved country. I believe President Trump to be the most "truthful," most pro-Christian and most pro-life president of my lifetime. "May God help us, II Chronicles 7:14.
