Unless you're a doctor & have the data, you're just Trumping, loudly

To The Daily Sun,

To Rosemary Mellon, whose letter regarding Hillary Clinton's health appeared in the Sept. 17 Daily Sun, I have this to say:

One of the greatest presidents the United States ever had was stricken with polio and spent most of his time in a wheelchair. Did that make him disqualified for president? John Kennedy took painkillers every single day for his back injury from World War II. Did that make him disqualified? Ronald Reagan was shot and suffering from Alzheimer's. Grover Cleveland had oral cancer. Woodrow Wilson had a stroke. Dwight Eisenhower had a heart attack.

But you'll attack the first woman nominee for something that can be treated with rest and antibiotics? So unless you are her doctor and have specific data particular to her diagnosis, I submit that you are just Trumping loudly. Perhaps you should consider Mr. Trump's blatantly pampered and bloated body and his sociopathic antics and write another letter about him. I look forward to reading it.

Clinton is neither open nor transparent about health or campaign

To The Daily Sun,

This letter answers Susan Estrich's column published in the Sept. 17 Daily Sun.

There you go again! Criticizing Donald Trump and making excuses for Hillary Clinton. With all the problems we face, and the dangers we are leaving our children to deal with, Mr. Trump has outlined what he wants to do to make America great again. It sure doesn't include opening new golf courses or hosting reality shows.

Mrs. Clinton has only criticized Donald Trump. She doesn't have any solutions, so she tries to eviscerate Trump and makes insidious remarks about his supporters, calling them a "basket of deplorables", an insolent statement to say the least. This is coming from a woman who has a natural propensity to be licentious.

Her previous positions, (secretary of state, senator, lawyer, etc.) didn't seem to give birth to any accomplishments that were favorable to the public. The public simply does not trust her. Her past has shown an element of suspicions, from Whitewater, Travelgate, Benghazi, e-mails, and the latest, her collapsing/pneumonia debacle. All smell fishy.

The reason she can't open up, is she is running out of prevaricating statements to reinforce her previous lies. The recent health debacle, (collapsing from pneumonia) is exacerbated by mendacious statements as a cover-up.

In the legal profession, there is something called circumstantial evidence, which helps to prove the person guilty. She seems to cling to the fallacy that she is above the law. In other words, licentious.

In politics, there are many advantages to being open and transparent. Unfortunately for Clinton, she is neither transparent, or open about her campaign or health.

To paraphrase, you can lie to the people/public some of the time, but you can't lie to the public all of the time.
