To the Editor: 

Supporting or not supporting Donald Trump is no longer a right or left issue. It is now a right or wrong issue.

Good people, whether conservative or progressive, are beginning to look at the right and wrong of Trump's actions withholding military aid to Ukraine for personal, political benefit, and his abandonment of our Kurdish friends. This is a good thing.

No one is above the law. No one has the right to abuse their power.

There are, of course, some who will never be swayed on their view of Trump. However, the moral center is making its decisions based on its respect for the Constitution and its moral code.

Is it right to deny needed military support to an important ally just so one can attain dirt on a political foe? Is it right to abandon a loyal friend and allow them to be slaughtered? Those questions are getting easier to answer. 

This is not about supporting or not supporting impeachment; it is about deciding right and wrong. The politicians will argue about impeachment, but it is up to the people to decide if Trump is right or wrong. 

Whether Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, I believe the American people will fairly judge Trump's actions, because that is what loyal, patriotic Americans have always done.
