Spokane too liberal

I moved my family to Spokane 29 years ago because I wanted our children to have better schools, and because I wanted an area that is basically conservative. However, it is very, very clear that Spokane has swung more and more to the “left” and is becoming more liberal than Seattle! The letters to the editor over the last year confirms this: about 90 percent of the letters are ridiculous, hateful, divisive, untruths (lies), … and the “sick” list goes on.

This means that common sense is a thing of the past. Paul Turner often asks readers how Spokane has changed over the last one or two decades, and it has become extremely obvious. And even The Spokesman-Review has changed. For example, take a look at the Feb. 3 issue in the front section, pages one and three.

On Feb. 2, a document was released by the White House, and is the most damaging disclosure to the American people in the history of our country. It is an abuse-of-power story about the agencies that are supposed to be protecting Americans but have become dishonest and corrupt, past and present, in the upper echelons of the FBI and the DOJ, and whose salaries are paid by American citizens! This disclosure is only the beginning! More is coming!

The report by The Spokesman Review, as listed above, is almost a “nonreport” and is a disgrace to all of the Spokane citizens!
