Letter to the editor: Country now ruled by a con man

on June 19, 2017 9:34 AM

Government of the people, by the people, for the people! A simple concept, a noble concept, or … a vain hope?

Sadly the results of the 2016 election have exposed the raw inadequacies of our “democracy.”

Our republic was created:

a) in rejection of a monarchy.

b) as a preference for coffee over tea.

c) as a place to grow cotton and tobacco.

d) a place where the deer and the antelope roam.

e) as the home of the “American Dream.”

As a result of the election of 2016, we now have a country ruled by a con man and his family of hucksters and shysters. Still we presume to command respect from the rest of the world? Well, many leaders from countries which we count as “allies” remain unimpressed with the inadequacies of our current POTUS!

When our president’s declared aim is “America first,” how can we expect other nations to respect and cooperate with the U.S. in facing up to the looming threats of:

a) international terrorism.

b) exploding populations.

c) water shortages.

d) rising temperatures.

e) food crises.

Wake up, people, before it’s too late !
