America seems to be moving backward

Print Article

There is so much in the media concerning President Trump: sexual scandals, lawsuits, porn star payoff, Russia, money exchanged with Putin, but still this isnít enough to convince Congress and state officials for impeachment. Richard Nixon was out because of the Watergate scandal.

Trump wishes to close the government down because of no funding for the border. Itís time for the American people to stand united, register and vote those in office for the people and not for their own discretion. The American people have been cheated of their benefits: veterans, the disabled, elderly and underprivileged, people receiving Medicare and food benefits. This is why there are so many homeless people out there all over the world. Weíve come so far in the future and we seem to be going backwards into racism.

I guess when the Constitution was written and signed they should have read the small print when they stated that all are created equal because we know that ainít true. Look at the justice system in the Land of the Free and of Opportunity, if youíre the right race.
