To the Journal editor:
Lies, corruption, indecency, anger, money, big money, gigantic money! This seems to be what the race for the White House and the Congress in the U.S. has come to.
Truth and facts? What are they? Ethics? What's that? Common interest? To heck with common interest, it's party ideology that matters. It's all just one huge, revolting turn-off for someone naive enough to have once believed that a national election in the U.S. was something to value, respect, to participate in and even fight for.
A real gift to be treasured. As such a person today, I find that I have two choices: get involved and feel very much a fraud because I have absolutely no hope or faith that anything I do will matter. Or, opt out completely for the same reason. God Bless America.
