2016 voters must inform themselves

Columnist William F.B. O’Reilly is a confused man.

O’Reilly wrote that Donald Trump is “unfit” to be president [“Donald Trump’s GOP is built on sand,” Opinion, July 21]. That remains to be seen. Do you know what Trump has achieved? Read the biographies about him and those written about Hillary Clinton. Listen to the upcoming debates carefully.

People must decide for themselves whom they will vote for. Citizens voting this year must be informed! We are at a crucial crossroad in American history. Generations will be affected by our vote in November.

I will always defend the right of the speakers at the Republican National Convention to disagree with their opponents’ policies, but their methods were appalling [“Clinton denounces Republican convention, calls it ‘surreal,’ ” News, July 20].

The words they used to vilify Hillary Clinton were surely inducing smirks from the men around the world who victimize and abuse the women in their lives. I am sure the speakers’ mothers and daughters are not proud.
