To the editor:

  I could not let Mr. Willard Jr.’s letter of Jan. 5 go by without a rebuttal. He appears to blame Democrats and President Biden for everything he believes is wrong with our country but offers no specifics just general innuendo, and, apparently he still believes the 2020 election was stolen.

The election totals are as follows: Biden won 81,283,501 popular votes and 306 electoral votes to Trumps 74,223,975 popular votes and 232 electoral votes. Yes, 74m is a big number but 81m is much larger. As to fraud, if Democrats are so smart that they created a way to count more votes for Biden than Trump without effecting any other races on the ballots and without leaving any evidence behind – then maybe he should change his party affiliation.

  The Jan. 6th hearings were an eye opener about what went on in the the White House both before and after the 2020 elections.

This was sworn testimony by people both working for and advising former President Trump during that period. It’s really too bad that a lot of the country failed to watch it.

  Lastly, I know a lot of Democrats and they are no more devils than any of the Republicans I know.
