In my 81 years, I’ve observed many changes in this great nation, and I believe we’ve entered into a devastating era.

About 40 percent of the voting public will vote along party lines, regardless of reality.

This seems to be due to a curious mixture of racism, religion, perceived social class, politics or just plain stupidity. Humanism, reality and facts are ignored.

I call them the “flat-earth people.”

One party is willing to tear down the federal government by deception, propaganda, obstruction and downright lies. They have the monetary backing of enormously rich institutions and individuals to accomplish this.

It seems that the “flat-earth” voters don’t realize the enormous damage this attack will bring to them personally and to the nation. Many of these people currently enjoy federal government programs (such as Social Security and Medicare) and would be lost without them.
