Letter: Trump, supporters disrupting postal service
Because many of Trump’s loyal supporters fear that he will be in jeopardy if the next election is free and fair, they have banded together, with Trump’s blessing, to suppress the next election any way they can. Therefore, at Trump’s behest, they are using the Postmaster-General, Louis De Joy, to disrupt our Postal Service. So far, he has discarded many of the mail sorting machines and thrown them in the trash, ripped up some of our blue mailboxes from the pavement, eliminated “needless” overtime for postal workers, and let our letters and packages pile up in bins by sending out empty and half-empty trucks. And now Trump is preparing us for this suppression by sending out dire warnings about mail-in ballots that may not be counted because of late mail delivery.
This mail disruption, of course, has already affected the V.A.’s prescription delivery service, the slowdown of Social Security checks for seniors and vital loan payments to renters and small business owners. But Trump and his henchmen justify these extreme hardships as “collateral damage.” After all, every worthwhile endeavor has collateral damage.
Let’s get rid of these bums by voting Trump out of office in November.
