Editor’s note: This letter is in response to the column, “How Democracies Die,” published April 22.
I think democracies die when our elected officials are concerned with keeping their jobs rather than doing the job they swore an oath to do. I cannot remember when party came before country.
The current mindset is a disaster. I fear we may be heading toward a dictatorship! The Republicans seem to have deified Trump. A most unworthy deity. The adoration of evangelicals is completely baffling. The same behavior Trump has exhibited would have brought out the torches and pitchforks if Obama had done it! Have their standards changed so much? Apparently.
I want to tell you how I appreciate your editorials (probably because I agree) and to please keep up the great work.
