It’s well documented that Obamas are leasing, not buying, home

To The Daily Sun,

It is well documented that the Obamas are leasing the home owned by Mr. Lockhart. You should correct your article and stick to the facts. There is no doubt that the home is valued in the mid-seven figures, but they are not purchasing the home and your article is very misleading.

The article, dated Dec. 31 and titled, "For Whiner of the Year as he leaves the presidency," has falsehoods.

Electoral College was intended to prevent election of a madman

To The Daily Sun,

"The America of Yesterday has defeated the America of Tomorrow," said Brian Williams on the night of Nov. 8.

Hillary Clinton got 2.84 million more votes than Donald Trump, but for the fifth time in the history of our country, the Electoral vote has trumped the popular vote. The last time this happened, we got George W. Bush, Dick Cheney (Mike Pence's "role model"), two tragic wars, financial disaster, and environmental deterioration.

Alexander Hamilton and his fellow framers of the Constitution were afraid that a mob would elect a madman, and decided that an elite group, the Electoral College, should decide who would be president. The tables have turned, and now we have an elite group of billionaires, headed by a madman, to lead us into collapse.

I'm disgusted and scared, and I'm not alone. As a Greek columnist said recently about the economy in that country, "Pessimism is the rational position."
