Burhop: Listen to Aretha Franklin


In the words of that famous American singer: R-E-S-P-E-C-T by Arethra Franklin.

I personally have always enjoyed credibility and respect. Partly because of my profession and partly because of my personal ethics (not always perfect, but always strived for).

Without Donald Trump at the helm of our ship of state, we, as Americans are gradually regaining respect throughout the world. President Joe Biden is not perfect but he is a man of character and honesty. GOP obstructionism continues to attempt to erode our society and reputation throughout the the world.

We must not allow the GOP to continue on Trump’s self-serving path. Voters must do the research and vote accordingly.
