I applaud Joe Cadettes’ guest column [“Pursuit of liberty will sweep away ‘elitist liberalism,’” Gazette, Jan. 23]. He stated exactly how us people “on the right” feel about the current election bruhaha that is all over the news. Funny how you don’t hear a word about all the good Trump did when he was in office. He understood that elected officials get their “power” from the people, not the other way around.

Increasingly, officials at every level seem to think we are here to serve them, and to take what they say as the truth. It makes me think of a book I read in high school, George Orwell’s “1984” where the government was in total control. It’s time for “the silent majority” to speak up by the power of the vote, and get all the self-serving legislators out of office. Yes there a lot of good people in office who try to do what is best for the nation, but most of the time their ideas get trashed.

I could go on forever about this, but let me end with a thought for everyone. Vote with your head and sift throught all the baloney in the news, and cast your vote wisely. It’s the only way we can turn this country around. Hopefully the majority will elect the best candidate for the job in November. My choice is Mr. Trump.
