Letter to the editor: Speak up for the Constitution

To the Editor:

Former President Donald Trump recently called for the suspension of the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Constitution guarantees my right to freedom of speech, religion, the right to bear arms, the right to assemble in groups, the right to vote, and the right to a trial by jury and representation by an attorney, and it doesn’t allow the government to alter contracts as long as they are legal.

The total list of rights granted to Americans is way too long to list, and I am not knowledgeable about all of them. But I think that Trump’s statement should warrant a lot more response than I am seeing. Maybe elected officials think that their constituents love Trump more than their Constitutional Rights. Maybe people who love their rights should let them know that isn’t so?
