Letters to the Editor

We the people not we the government

Letter writers have been expressing outrage and angst over local and national leaders and their outrageous disregard in spending taxpayers’ money. I finally realized the common thread of the outrage. Many politicians, from mayors on up to the president, consider us common people little ducks in a row. Either we stay in line or roll over and play dead. If we step out of the line, we could become dead ducks. They will turn the bureaucracy on us to get even.
