This email is in reference to Jean Chen’s article, “Who Are the Real Racists?” [published March 17]. Her article was very well-written, and I’m always amazed that it takes a foreigner who either became a citizen or not of the U.S., which it doesn’t matter, to tell Americans what is going on in our own country.

Unfortunately, we have too many Americans who go along just to get along and are just complacent. The question that I have is, “How do we get the information out to all Americans?” The radical far-left has permeated every aspect of our society, and we have fewer conservative outlets, which puts us at a disadvantage. The radical far left, which includes news media, social media, and our radical far-left politicians, control what we hear and see. They control us with fear-mongering and untruths and even cancel our speech.

And yet all I hear is talk, talk, talk from conservatives and nothing about what is being done. Complaints can only take you so far; it’s the action that really counts.

It’s very frustrating to sit back and just watch what is going on in our country. We don’t seem to have checks and balances anymore. Government can just plow over us, and we can’t do a thing about it, at least that is what I feel. We can’t make changes in our government unless we get good people in government willing to make those changes.

I don’t believe that the Founders of our country expected our politicians to make a lifelong career out of government jobs. That’s one of the reasons we’re in this situation right now. It becomes group thinks, and nothing good comes from that. Anyway, my point is, we need a way to wake up the citizens of the USA.
