Letter: What has happened to our democracy?

Posted

Are we rapidly becoming a banana republic? A third world country?

What happened to a government of the people, by the people and for the people? Not a government for Trump, who has an ego larger than New York.

As a Vietnam era veteran, I wonder how Trump’s federal government shutdown has affected the Veterans Administration and families of all veterans throughout the country. The veterans who went to sacrifice their lives for our country. Veterans who came back suffering from Agent Orange, PTSD and dismembered bodies. And the veterans who were prisoners of war like Senator John McCain (NOT draft dodgers). Is this how we repay our veterans for their valor and love of country? Those who gave it all?

Those hawks in Congress who oppose opening up our government (yes, Señor Cruz) probably never served in the military. If they did serve and oppose opening the government, shame on you!

The veterans of the USA, the greatest country in the world, should unite, and show a united front by calling their Congressman and Congresswomen to remind them that we still live in a democracy with an open government “for the people.”

Remind the world that USA is a democracy recognized as a free country from Mora, New Mexico, to New York, to the shores of Tripoli.

Like Moses says in the Bible, tell Trump “Let my people go.”

Respectfully,
