Letter: Americans must elect strong leader in 2016

Americans must elect strong leader in 2016

I am looking forward to the 2016 presidential election in hopes of electing a leader capable of returning this country to a position of greatness. There was a time when we were feared by our enemies and respected by our allies. The current occupant of the White House has proven from Day One that he is not up for the challenge to lead this country at a most crucial time in history.

Take a look around the world, people – if you can put down your smartphones for a moment. We have the makings of World War III, a war that will be all about good versus evil. There are about six problem countries that are led by the criminally insane or overrun by those types. The only wording in negotiations with Iran (a state sponsor of terrorism that has vowed to wipe Israel off the map for basically religious differences) should be loud and clear: “Dismantle your nuclear weapons program now or we will destroy it, and you have until sundown on such and such day to do so.”

What happened to our policy of not negotiating with terrorists? If you think the centrifuges have stopped spinning during negotiations, you are wrong.
