To the Editor:

It’s been said that this fall’s election is the most important in a generation. In the words of songwriter Paul Simon, “I do believe it, I do believe it’s true.” Election 2020 is shaping up as a fight for our nation’s very soul.

My parents always taught me that if you had nothing good to say about someone, then say nothing. While I have plenty to say about our country’s current president — none of it good — I will remain mum. Except to note that, sadly, the man brings new meaning to the term “morally bankrupt.”

I would urge that all citizens who can, please vote for the Biden/Harris ticket. And for all Democrats on the ballot including Roy Cooper and Cal Cunningham. Vote as if your nation’s soul depends on it. Because it does.
