Dear Editor,

So this is what a Democracy/Republic has become! If one side doesn’t get its absolute way, we shut down the government thru filibuster or executive action, therefore forcing the people to suffer until, thru political pressure, one side squeals “Uncle!” I seriously doubt this is what our founding fathers had in mind when they created this government! Where is the bipartisan congressional study showing the need and or location for the barricade/wall? Where are the hordes of aliens crossing? Isn’t that the way the system is supposed to work? Studies have shown that drugs are entering thru our ports of entry, as cartels wouldn’t risk losing a shipment with coyotes.

Allan L. Gustafson,


P.S. Does anyone even look at or care about our deficit and national debt anymore?
