UPDATE: Deerwood man dies in head-on crash with semitrailer

Reader Opinion: Check 'The Donald'

Now that my "evangelical" friends have two new Supreme Court justices (Gorsuch and Kavanaugh) that may overturn Roe v. Wade and old white men have taken over the executive, judicial and legislative branches of our government can we please elect Democrats on Nov. 6 so we can check Donald Trump and his authoritarian tendencies?

We, the voters, have a chance to elect candidates that care about Social Security, Medicare, poor people, women's rights, public education, racism, our environment, affordable health care for all, the middle class, gun reform, unions, our infrastructure, raising the minimum wage and, most importantly, bringing civility back to our divided state of America!

Democrats are not "the enemy." Liberals are not "a mob." The free press is not "the enemy of the people." This is the language of a dictator!

Putin, Kim Jong Un, Duterte (Philippines), Jinping (China) and Salman of Saudi Arabia are Trump's friends? Trump loves thugs? We must resist!

The resistance (protesters) knew that Vietnam was a losing proposition, that Nixon was a "crook", that Iraq would be a quagmire, that trickle down economics has never worked and that Trump is one of the least ethical people on politics. Seven lies per day!

Trump, the bully, is gaslighting (sowing seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or group so as to have them question their own sanity) the citizens of our country. We're living in a "Twilight Zone."

Fox News, especially Hannity, Ingraham, Pirro and Carlson, spew "alternative" facts and hate-filled rhetoric. ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN are on the same wavelength. I would read various newspapers in search of the "real" truth.

Patriotic Americans that care about decency, honesty, morality, the common good and our democracy need to check "The Donald" by voting for Democrats on Nov. 6.
