JOHN GANCARZ: Watching democracy go out the window or into the swamp

TO THE EDITOR:

Anyone age 60 or older can remember sitting in school and being told by a history teacher how strong our form of government was and all the safeguards that were in place to prevent what happened in Germany so it could never happen in America.

So what is going on in America?

With a ballpoint pen, a man in the White House can cut funding for Meals on Wheels, Great Lakes cleanup programs and health care (Medicaid and Medicare).

In short, take away the things that people have been fighting for for over 50 years, to make life better here in the United States of America.

What is more than just disappointing is our own representative. You know the one you voted for. The one that said he would represent you and I when he got to Washington.

Do you see or hear them say anything to protect us from a complete tearing down of our democracy by a fool that has no respect for any of us or this country?

It is more than past time to stop this assault on American values.

Ask yourself, what do our children hear on TV coming out of the mouths of these foul language-speaking, ill-mannered fools?

The good people of America deserve a lot more than this bunch of bums.
