Misplaced trust

To the Editor:

I feel that I must reply to at least part of a letter from Lunn Sawyer in the March 5 edition of the Islander.

That letter states that many people trust our government except when Republicans are in charge. We have had a Democratic president and administration in Washington for the last six-plus years. That certainly hasn’t inspired trust. The lies and deceptions about Bengazi, the true cost of Obamacare, IRS targeting conservative groups, the justice department’s “Fast & Furious” program, veterans’ healthcare cover-ups and several other scandals do not make this a trustworthy administration.

To really top off the trust is our president’s attempting to get around the Constitution via executive action.

Consider these actions before you put your trust in any political party.
