To the Editor-
To begin my letter, I will quote our first president, George Washington, from his address of March 15, 1783, to the officers of the Newburgh Conspiracy, who sought to have him lead a coup’ d’e tat against the Continental Congress following the glorious victory of Yorktown: “…And let me conjure you, in the name of our Common Country, as you value your own sacred honor, a you respect the rights of humanity…to express your utmost horror and detestation of the man who wishes, under any specious pretenses, to overturn the liberties of our Country, and who wickedly attempted to open the flood gates of civil discord….”
What a great person George Washington was.
Our first president could not tell a lie. Our current president cannot tell the truth.
I am glad I did not vote for Trump. If you did, you should reflect upon the wisdom and humility of Washington, as opposed to the rashness and braggadocio of Trump.
In any event, if you consider the words of George Washington and the actions of Trump, you should instantly recognize who the “man” is that you should detest.
