To The Daily Sun,
In recent weeks, it appears that both Republicans as well as Democrats are stooping to new lows in campaigning strategy. We have the Trumps, Cruzes, and the Clintons. The one standout that offers the most hope for this country is Bernie Sanders. This is a formal endorsement of Bernie.
While Senator Sanders appears to offer a "socialist platform," in reality it is not. The idea that education and health care be provided by the U.S. government is not new. The sources of funding would comes from those ultra rich billionaires (of which Donald Trump is one of them) as well as "increased taxes" (which really should be called premiums). In the long term, should this be successfully set up, this will improve the national economy overnight, as the excess money saved from the differences between private sector insurance companies and the government programs of health care will be substantial, which will ultimately be returned into the economy, by means of spending this "surplus."
Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are dangerous politicians as well as crybabies. Rather than discuss the issues affecting United States citizens, these men chose to act like two aggressive siblings, offering accusations that are not founded on hard evidence. We do not have time to hear these two children. Their behaviors are deplorable. The negativism related to their obvious bigotry is unacceptable. Both of these men display dangerous overtones that could well impact on the health, safety, and welfare of our country.
Bigotry as a matter of constitutional law is unacceptable, illegal, and unconstitutional. To threaten war over the littlest event is tantamount to bringing the U.S. into another war which we do not need. In short, by voting for either Mr. Trump or Mr. Cruz is to seriously threaten our country's existence. This supporters of these two men do not understand the depth of the danger these two men present.
Having already shared thoughts regarding Mr. Trump, this note turns to Mr. Cruz. Mr. Cruz is another bigot. He must not be elected. Bigotry is unacceptable and unconstitutional and the president of the USA must represent all peoples in this country. This includes all races, religions, nationality, sexual identification, and disabled people. We must all work together to promote harmony among all of us.
Mr. Cruz works the opposite way, promoting hatred and discord for this ever-growing group of minorities. Christianity is not mentioned in either the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution for a reason. Mr. Cruz has chosen to ignore this. Even Muslims, by religion, are also a part of our national landscape, and to even think anything different is unconstitutional.
The Muslim community is actually a strength by which we can hope to resolve the Mideast turmoil (caused by George Bush, Jr.) as they can provide answers on how we can resolve this current World War III. Mr. Cruz wants to carpet-bomb them, have special law enforcement staff to monitor the Muslim community, both of which must not be. Thus Mr. Cruz is a most dangerous individual and a poor example of one who aspires to be our next president.
This writer has offered this point several times. This election is the most critical election in this country's history. We the people can elect the winner of the Democratic primary and enable us to move forward and set a healthy example for the rest of the world, or we can destroy our own heritage and country by electing either Trump or Cruz. The worse of the two is Ted Cruz. These two men will destroy the country that is truly the hope of mankind and the human race. This country's future rests in you, the voters and people of this country's hands.
Robert T. Joseph, Jr.
