Some candidates making a mockery

SHELLY FREEMAN, Carson City

I am a senior citizen who has lived in Carson City for 16 months, which doesn’t really have anything to do with the reason for this letter.

Since a small child, I have been proud that I am an American! I grew up feeling so loyal to our wonderful country and couldn’t understand why anyone would would live anywhere else.

However, this past year, in preparation for the election year, I find myself disillusioned about the sincerity of some of our citizens such as Jesse Ventura and Donald Trump who have expressed the “need” to run for president of our country. If they do run for president, I don’t feel that either one would be elected, but the thing that bothers me most is the fact that they are so disrespectful and frivolous about the job of president of this great country to the point of tarnishing the position and our nation.

I feel that most of us just want to see an intelligent, honest, moral person in the highest office in our country!
