This is America

EDITOR: This is America. We vote for the best people we can find to represent us. What happens to them when they go to Washington? Consider President Trump. I was devastated when he ordered the Syrian air base near Homs to be bombed, but I can’t judge him. I don’t know the pressure he is […]
