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

"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.
