LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Defending our American democracy

So, OK, it’s pretty well established that we have an unstable, delusional, incompetent, corrupt and unpatriotic president and a Republican Congress that continues to enable him! What can we do about a lying, narcissistic, racist, immoral “Putin Fan Boy” president who fits Russia’s definition of a “useful idiot”? Take back Congress!

The 2018 midterms are the most important elections in a generation!

It is our best chance to start impeachment proceedings for high crimes against our country and the best chance we have to reverse dangerous policies that threaten not only American citizens but the world order, including our strategic relationships with our allies abroad. Impeachment proceedings against “choir boy” Pence, a fawning and equally dangerous vice president, are also merited!

As Americans go to the polls in November, they need to let the world know what they truly believe America is all about — a broad and inclusive democracy, a nation that respects the rights of all, a country that rallies against corrupt and tyrannical governments and allies itself with nations around the world that respect and honor traditional American values.

These qualities are wholly lacking in this present administration led by a self-serving, xenophobic and corrupt president who idolizes tyrants and dictators, who spouts out hatred and bigotry, who belittles women and the disabled, and bullies anyone who even dares to criticize or oppose him.

In an effort to return America to our time-honored qualities of compassion, empathy, morality, honesty, prudence, civility, fairness, and yes, spirituality, I have been trying to come up with some catchy slogans that the Democrats might want to consider as they strive to oust those Republican enablers who have embedded themselves into his reign of terror.

• Bring Principled American Leadership Back Again!

• Make America the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave Again!

• Uphold American Values Again!

• Bring Back Our American Democracy!

• Make America Just and Honest Again!

• Take America on the High Road Again!

• Restore the American Dream!

• Make America Honorable Again!

• Bring America an Unhinged Presidency!
