LETTER: Biden’s great bait and switch

Mark Twain is credited with remarking that: “If voting mattered, they wouldn’t let us do it”. Unfortunately, the 2020 presidential election proved him wrong. The electorate tried to elect a moderate who would cool the political climate. Talk about “bait and switch.”

Anyway, we are now in the midst of the greatest socialist experiment of the nation’s long history. Transformative, as the socialists say.

Because we are stuck, pending a leadership change, I suggest we savor the situation. Never forget that government spending of newly created money devalues our currency and raises consumer prices. Understand that removing work incentives with freshly printed money creates a dependent society as well as a scarcity of goods and services.

Make a promise to prove Mark Twain wrong. He’d be pleased.

LETTER: Break up the two-party monopoly

It would be funny if it weren’t so sad, but I don’t know how people can be so blind to the blatant monopoly and collusion of the Democratic and Republican parties.
