Hello, my name is John Holzer and I am from Moreno Valley, California.
I am writing to express some concerns I have regarding President-elect Donald J. Trump and the future of the United States.
First, I want to express my concern over the possible appointment of Steve Bannon to Chief Strategist. If I may be so blunt, he is an evil person that we absolutely do not need running the country with Trump.
Second, I want to express my concern for the appointment of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. I believe his priorities as Attorney General will not be aligned with what is best for America as a whole. It's also concerning that he has been accused of racism in his past.
Third, I want to express my concern for the actual election of Donald J. Trump. It has come to light that the Trump campaign was, in fact, communicating with Russia, and I feel that Russia may have not only tampered with the vote in key states, but may have worked with Trump supporters in online campaigns to spread lies and propaganda. I also wish to express my concerns over FBI director James Comey and his actions in regards to Hillary Clinton's emails days before the election.
Fourth, I wish to express my concern for any legislation that will adversely affect people of color, Muslim, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer, the poor, refugees and immigrants currently residing in and coming into America. Trump and his team have plans to not only take away rights that these people have been granted, but to dehumanize them. This is not what America stands for and his agenda disgusts me.
Finally, I wish to express my concerns over any appointment Trump may make to the Federal Communications Commission and rulings that the Commission have made in recent months that Trump's team may be looking to overturn, specifically Net Neutrality. The FCC has determined that the internet should be classified under Title II of the Communications Act. Millions of Americans expressed their concerns while the Commission was coming to this determination and the FCC listened and acted accordingly. Net Neutrality keeps the internet open to all and guarantees that Americans have equal access to anything on the web. Creating "fast lanes" for certain sites and services is not only discriminatory, but will not encourage infrastructure advancements and is bad for competition among existing and new Internet Service Providers. This could result in higher prices for consumers and, ultimately, censorship on the internet. I cherish the internet and I am firmly against overturning Net Neutrality. We must keep the internet free and open.
Thank you for your time.
