Mind and Destiny

“I make no pretension to patriotism. So long as my voice can be heard ... I will hold up America to the lightning scorn of moral indignation. In doing this, I shall feel myself discharging the duty of a true patriot; for he is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins. It is righteousness that exalteth a nation while sin is a reproach to any people.”- Frederick Douglass

Erdman West III

The Oneonta Daily Star recently published the following letter to the editor, that was submitted by Erdman West III.
“For the first time in history America does not have a choice between two viable candidates for president.  Donald Trump represents not democracy but fascism and threatens to bring our country to its knees in his service if elected.  Whether you love or hate Hillary Clinton, we must elect her or see the America we love become a thing of the past.  Why?  Please read a partial list of the many good reasons Donald Trump must not be given the highest office in the land and vote for Hillary Clinton.
“My opinion of Donald Trump: dishonest businessman, would-be dictator, racist, bigot, limited ability to concentrate, threatens nuclear war, liar, narcissist, limited vocabulary, demagogue, arrogant, uninformed, inarticulate, easily tricked into mindless rage, friend of dictator/murderer Putin, Trump denigrated John McCain (a war hero) and all POWs, makes fun of disabled Americans (singled out a reporter for mockery), threatens theocracy, fascist, asked that someone with a gun murder Hillary Clinton, encourages the KKK and white supremacy in general, sociopathic, psychopathic, accused of child molestation, under investigation for fake ‘University’ scam, has an ‘end ISIS’ plan but will allow our young servicemen and servicewomen to continue dying unless he is elected, threatens to desert our allies, betrays America by discussing his security briefings in public, used Russian television to attack America, lacks of basic grasp of domestic and foreign policy, anti-education, wife has posed nude, wife lied regarding her education, wants to end free press, attacks and insults our military leaders, does not support our returning service personnel, lies about donations to vets groups!”
