I’m a per­son who wants change

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Bernar­dine Abel­lSwann, Me­chan­icsville

I would like to an­swer the ques­tion, “What kind of per­son are you?” (who voted for Trump). This was asked by Wil­liam C. Watts, “He won the bat­tle but we’ll lose the war “(Mary­land In­de­pen­dent Jan. 4).

I am the kind of per­son who wants change — real change — and not afraid to vote for it. Just about every­one I meet says politi­cians are crooked, Wash­ing­ton, D.C., is a mess and we need to vote them out. But do they? No. The Amer­i­can vot­ers keep vot­ing the “same ole, same ole.”

This feel­ing of pol­i­tics be­ing bro­ken is noth­ing new. Mark Twain said, “It could prob­a­bly be shown by facts and fig­ures that there is no dis­tinctly na­tive Amer­i­can crim­i­nal class ex­cept Congress.” And the Clin­tons are the poster child for crim­i­nal acts and cor­rupt­ness. If this let­ter goes be­yond South­ern Mary­land, it will prob­a­bly be my last. I would not be the first per­son the Clin­ton’s have si­lenced.

In re­sponse to the sub­ject of lies: in mem­ory of J. Christo­pher Stevens. Ty­rone Woods, Sean Smith and Glen Do­herty, I would like to re­mind Amer­i­cans of the lies Sec­re­tary of State Clin­ton and the Obama Ad­min­is­tra­tion fed to their fam­i­lies af­ter Bengazi.

I am the kind of per­son who will al­ways re­mem­ber the suf­fer­ing and heart break th­ese fam­i­lies have en­dured.
