Reader's Views: With so much stupidity, question everything

We are in jeopardy of losing our constitutional rights, as each day goes by.

The Federal Communications Commission voted to limit what we can access on the World Wide Web. Our choices will be limited ("FCC votes to repeal its net neutrality rules," Dec. 14).

Will our newspapers be next? Who knows?

The new tax bill will definitely hurt the middle class and poor while putting our country deeper in debt by $2.2 trillion. This is true conservatism. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and education all could be devastated. Forget about infrastructure repairs or even cosmetic maintenance.

Don't those leaders taking these actions realize the middle class sustains the economy? This is sheer stupidity. As the expression goes, "They would cut off their nose just to spite their face."

What will be next? A microchip implanted under your skin to keep track of you? Don't laugh; this is already under consideration.

I love this song lyric, "I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free." Right — as free as they'll let you be.

Question everything, as I do. Don't buy into all the refuse being fed to you. Propaganda. Pure poison.

As Sen. Teddy Kennedy once asked, "When will the greed end?" In my opinion, it won't.

As I stated in my June 2016 letter to the editor, "Donald Trump is the John Wilkes Booth of the Republican Party of Abraham Lincoln."
