It is sad that all the doom and gloom of Mary Jane Newell’s letter (Nov. 25) is based on fears that are not true.
President Obama is a Christian, an American citizen and was raised by a mother and grandparents from Kansas. He is not a Muslim, not a Communist and he works diligently to enhance the well-being of all citizens of this country and the world.
Susan Rice was born in Washington, attended Stanford University and was a Rhodes Scholar.
Here is my wish list:
The Affordable Care Act be accepted and improved where needed.
The wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. Hiding money out of the country to avoid taxes must be stopped.
The Citizens United ruling must be changed; get big money out of politics.
Everyone accepts that there is no voter fraud and that voter suppression is wrong.
Planning for parenthood is essential. Planned Parenthood should be supported and funded. The world population is growing too fast. Food supply will continue to grow as a real problem.
Global warming and climate change are happening. Pouring tons upon tons of pollution into the atmosphere is not healthy for planet Earth. Officials need to focus on alternative energy, now.
Jobs should be brought back from China, etc. People need to make a concerted effort to “buy American.”
People must accept that “separation of church and state” means they cannot force their religious beliefs and taboos on others.
