Letter: America’s being destroyed by self-serving politicians

America’s being destroyed by self-serving politicians

Forget about threats from Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and ISIS. America is crumbling from within, thanks to the disgraceful “leadership” of both political parties and an electorate that’s drifting along on snooze control.

A long time ago, Edmund Burke said “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Today he might say something like this: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of despicable politicians is for good men and women to do nothing.”

At the very least, we need a new political party, if not an entirely new system of government. What form that should take is wide open for discussion by men and women with the courage and perseverance to stay the course. We have become a nation of spectators, sitting on the sidelines waiting for things to improve, while self-serving politicians enrich themselves and relentlessly attack the opposition.

The political landscape is only going to improve if good men and women grow a backbone, stand up to the powers that be and take our country back using any means necessary. It’s too late for me to benefit from any possible improvements; my hope is for a better life for my three children and four grandchildren. That is why I fight.
