Thank you, Alexander, for giving voice to the disappointment and frustration so many citizens feel. What are we to think when our elected Congressmen, who are supposed to represent us, vote against the clearly specified desires of the majority? It is becoming easier for me to believe there are powerful and persuasive forces behind the scenes: a minority with the motive and means to suffocate our democracy, subvert our rights and steer a course favoring and furthering what is in their interest and, they believe, in ours. More than the terrorist this Administration tells us we should fear, I fear our experiment in representative democracy is withering and may soon expire unless we the people pull together and back a presidential candidate with a philosophy, conviction and platform worthy of our trust and support.
