    Regarding a preposition and a word

    Sentence: "The reason I am writing this post because I want to tell the people, who think he is a crook , to not make perception under pressure from liberals, conservatives or on the reports of corrupt media. Just be a contrarian for a while in this case."

    My question: Is the preposition to been used correctly in the sentence ? Second question is the word under pressure been used correctly in the sentence ? And if there are other errors in the sentence then do point it out them also.


    Thanks

    Thanks
    "To" was OK but should go after the word "not". However, it's not a preposition - it's part of the verb "to make" (to make assumptions). Under pressure is fine. I'm not sure what you meant by "be a contrarian". I would think that you just want people to make their own minds up.
