This ‘deplorable’ is a veteran, educated and a retired executive

To The Daily Sun,

I am a deplorable. Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party believe that I am disgraceful, shameful, dishonorable, unworthy, inexcusable person. Why? Because I am going to vote for Donald Trump for president?

I am a veteran, have a great education and am a retired executive. This "deplorable" and sexist also supports Kelly Ayotte and Jeanie Forrester (yes I know she lost).

My uncle died in World War II, my father was a World War II veteran, and my brothers and my son are veterans. We are a family of deplorables. My wife supports Trump, so she is a deplorable.

However, Hillary did not stop there. As she laughed, she also called me a racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and Islam-phobic.

In the United States, you have the right to support the candidate of your choice. The leader of the Democrat Party should not be calling you names and degrading your family. God bless the USA.

Many respectful people believe life is precious before and after birth

To The Daily Sun,

I can only say in response to Mr. Cracraft's letter in the Sept. 14 issue of The Daily Sun, that I urge and plead that mothers and fathers keep their babies. Yes, my letters are always pro-life. I do not believe in killing, whether it be in an abortion or on the battlefield. I believe this is an issue that needs attention. And Mr. Cracraft, I am not "pro-war, pro-gun" or pro- some of the other stands you mention.

In response to Mr. Veverka's letter in the same issue, Mr Veverka, you continue to use generalized statements and are rude in your use of language. To be pro-life doesn't make one a "fundamentalist crazy" or a "holier-than-thou lunatic." Many responsible and respectful individuals believe life is precious, before or after birth.

The abortion issue is at a nearly 50/50, pro/con point now in America. If some letter that I write is able to change one woman from aborting to having her baby, then I feel it is a worthwhile endeavor. Every life is important and meaningful.
