I submitted a letter a few weeks ago and then decided not to have it published for fear of being too harsh. Today I decided that I am tired of being politically correct, and I am tired of being nice about what is happening to our country.

The good old USA needs to wake up. Everyone in our country needs to take a long look at themselves in the mirror and ask: Do I feel hate and contempt for women, children, the disabled, the LBGTQ community, the poor, people of different races and religion? Do I agree with the KKK? Do I think it is OK to say disgusting things to and about people on a daily basis, to continue destroying our earth, to ruin our country's standing with the entire world? Do I want more war? Do I think sexual assault is OK? If your answer was no to many of the questions then I would have to ask why would you continue to support this president? The current administration continues to attack all of the above.

If you do not believe me read Trump's tweets, listen to any speech he gives. The Republican Party and John Katko are standing behind this president which, as far as I am concerned, means they agree with the horrible things he says and does. The recent tax bill is an attack on average citizens. John Katko is proud to have voted for it. Many may believe they have won something with this new bill, but in the end the wealthy have won. It saddens me greatly that so many in our country do not care about our future generations, our own children and grandchildren, for they will be most affected by what this administration is doing. In closing I would like to say that this is not about Republicans and Democrats; this is about morals, ethics and values. This administration has shown that they have none of these.
