Letter: Donald Trump offers real change

Almost everyone would agree that we have two presidential candidates who make us shake our heads. The majority of us feel we can’t trust the government, have little faith in it and we are going in the wrong direction.

If we can get beyond the rough personality, Donald Trump is the only candidate that offers us real changes. Hillary Clinton is getting $10 million from lobbyists for her campaign. Why? Because most career politicians (both parties) do not want any serious changes.

Would it be nice if the veterans were taken care of, the IRS reduced to little or nothing, the FBI stayed out of politics, the Justice Department get concerned about real justice, term limits of two terms only for federal politicians, politicians vote on one item at a time instead of adding amendments to bills which gives them an excuse to not vote for a bill. Also, career federal civil servants have become fat cats who can do whatever they want because no one wants to take charge.

Do you think any of these possible changes would come about if Clinton wins?
