This is not a reality show; we're electing a president of the U.S.

To The Daily Sun,

Trump's "campaign" continues to plod on. His witches' brew of slash, demean, burn and belittle, with heaping portions of lies and ignorance may be red meat for his narrow band of followers. His outright daily lies, his outrageous name-calling, his serious lack of knowledge when it comes to world or national affairs are inexcusable. He's a con man trying to fleece his own supporters.

He has managed to make a total mockery of our presidential campaign process. Why isn't he held to the same standards of basic truth as other candidates? Why isn't his shady business record exposed, and his baseless boasts exposed for the outright lies that they are? We must demand that Trump be put under the same spotlight as everyone else?

This is not a hokey reality show to be judged on its entertainment value or on its outrageousness. This is supposed to be an election for president.

We honor the more than 1 million who died so we could be safe

To The Daily Sun,
Two hundred and forty years ago our nation was created based on the revolutionary idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Our founders' belief that a nation and a people dedicated to these ideas would prosper proved correct and many millions of people from around the world came, come, and want to come here to share the blessings that follow from those beliefs.
Unfortunately, there are people, national leaders, and ideologies which reject our beliefs in people's unalienable rights; they believe that people exist to serve them. Such people threaten and wage war to impose their controls over people's lives.
While most of us take our freedoms and prosperity for granted, the cost of protecting our way of life has been high.
Memorial Day is the day set aside to honor the more than 1,000,000 men and women who died to enable the rest of us to enjoy safe and comfortable lives. Freedom isn't free; men and women are fighting and dying today paying the price for our freedom.
On Monday, Memorial Day, go to a parade, military cemetery, or other Memorial Day event to remember and honor those who protect our freedoms and opportunities. We owe them our respect and gratitude, and they deserve it.
