Editor’s note: the following is in response to a previous letter by J. Buss.

Your letter moved me. Especially your heavy heart.

A few weeks ago, talking with a good friend who I feel is very intelligent about my opinion that Hillary Clinton was dishonest, corrupt and consequently untrustworthy, my friend suggested I put the question, “Is Hillary Clinton honest?”, into Google. Fully reading the entry beginning, “This may shock you…,” I was shocked and feel I can now vote for her with no heaviness of heart.

On Trump you might be relieved to know that through his own recent major speech on taxes and the economy he is, if you read carefully, pro-billionaire rather than pro-middle class and worker. On being pro-United States, please look at the way he behaves – always a good way to size someone up. One young person said, “I don’t want a president who shouts at people.” Do we want a man like this as an example for the future citizens of our country, the very young who are so impressionable? A man dramatically not Christian in many more ways than I’ve mentioned, as your heavy heart may already know?

I feel with you and hope this is helpful.
