Newburyport Daily News
---- — To the editor:
This is 2013 and the next presidential election is three-plus years away but reading the news, listening to the TV pundits, the election is all but over, now, today.
Let’s crown her, Hillary Clinton, the queen now, the next president in waiting, and save the nation from three years of political barbs, one-minute sound bytes and save all those wasteful political donations.
This will make political conventions moot, keep an unbroken continuation of progressive movements and lead to the destruction of our nation with the least pain for our citizens.
We will have medical care for all, food stamps for all, a living minimum wage for all, and retirement incomes for all. Everyone will have the fruits of hope and change and finally the nation will enjoy that “we are all created equal and endowed with certain unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
We will build our schools, bridges, airports, highways, hi-speed rail, finally rebuilding the nation. We will build our wind farms, solar panel farms while we wean the nation from oil and thus we will save the globe from global warming.
The $15 wage per hour at Mickey D’s will slowly close them throughout the nation because middle income people cannot afford a $10 bacon cheeseburger, the Big Mac.
The $12.50 wage per hour at Walmart will close them, but small business will flourish and reopen with prices only the wealthy can afford.
Why wait, let’s elect the queen, Hillary Clinton, now so we can continue the spend, borrow and tax policy, so everyone can enjoy the fruits of the decaying country.
John Adams probably didn’t mean these words for his United States when he wrote, “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”
