Letter to the Editor

If anything will bring our country down, it will be those laggards in the high and upper income groups of our society who pay no taxes.

These citizens often have the attitude that they are wiser and more competent than those of us who actually take responsibility and do annually pay our dues. I have been in the lower-middle to higher-poverty levels of income my entire adult life, paid taxes every year, and still do in retirement. I’ve had family members who’ve repeatedly inferred that to pay taxes is foolish and unnecessary and that I have been greatly a-miss for not learning how to “work our system”.

Donald Trump has this pompous attitude, not only towards those who have been foolish enough to serve our country, but also toward those who pay taxes. What a model of outstanding, responsible, and gracious integrity.
