LETTER: The many dangers of Donald Trump

Donald Trump has misjudged our nation’s character. Doesn’t he know the passion of people who want to be free through democracy, not autocracy?

Mr. Trump says he will be a dictator only for a day. But look at how he ran his administration. He ignored or fired advisers who disagreed with him and admired dictators such as Russia’s Putin or Turkey’s Erdoğan. He arbitrarily ignored health advisers about COVID killing thousands, and he collapsed our economy by mishandling the pandemic.

Should people live under a tyrant who makes laws filled with inequalities (tax reductions for the rich; trickle-down economics never works), displays inhumanity (mocking disabled individuals) and promotes injustice (saying he could kill someone in front of people and get away with it)?

Lastly, what gives him the right to decide what health care people will get? He’s not a doctor. Shouldn’t people resist a man who is choking them to death?

LETTER: Those dastardly mosquitoes

It’s been my pleasure to have lived in the Las Vegas Valley for 50 years. In all that time, I cannot recall ever once having been bitten by a mosquito. Until now.

LETTER: The carbon-spewing Biden family

Climate change is an existential threat to mankind, animals and plants. Why doesn’t the Biden family lead the way?

LETTER: The Trump show trial

Remember, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Ghandi and Sir Thomas More — all innocent men — were also declared to be guilty.

LETTER: No conspiracy involving Hunter’s laptop

The R-J should acknowledge that Mr. Trump’s lies, frauds, defamations, criminal indictments and convictions are exponentially worse than Hunter’s laptop being evidence or any of the other alleged Biden missteps.

LETTER: Trump tries to win Nevada

Mr. Trump advocating for tax-free tip income is definitely one approach to winning Nevada. But my tip to Mr. Trump is to pick Marco Rubio and show the diversity of the GOP.
