Following up on some recent letters to the editor, I thought I’d get my two cents in.
The EPA is not the greatest threat to America. Over the past 50 years, the EPA has gotten lead out of gas and paint, asbestos out of buildings, restored clean air and water across the country and begun to clean up abandoned mines that endanger the environment and public safety.
The only real 2020 election fraud came from the MAGA-supporting GOP, who submitted a slate of fake electors. Kelli Ward led that fraud in Arizona. Virtually every Arizona 2022 GOP candidate continues to spew the “big lie” as they push for more voting restrictions.
Voucher expansion has nothing to do with helping poorly performing public schools or low-income families. Its true goal is to siphon tax dollars to subsidize tuitions for the wealthy.
The GOP is no longer concerned with reducing government overreach into our daily lives. The rights of women to choose and LGBTQ+ to enjoy equality are being extinguished while books are banned and assault rifles proliferate.
When the MAGA GOP berates “wokeness," they’re attacking those of us who care about others besides ourselves. They want us to fear and hate rather than empathize and heal. They want to maintain the wrong doings, prejudices and misbeliefs of past generations.
If you want a clean environment, secure and accessible elections, quality public education, strong and autonomous personal freedoms secured by a government that fosters respect and care for all citizens, then you must use your vote as your voice. You must vote D in 2022.
