We get the government we deserve

To the editor:

These are times which try us as a nation. We've seen bad times before, maybe not quite the same. Let's hope we never get here again.

Harry Truman in his post-presidential notes wrote about the nature of democracy. Yes, much of the nations fate lies in the hands of the president but the voters have the ultimate authority.

"The country has to awakened every now and then to the fact that the people are responsible for the government they get," Truman wrote,"and when they elect a man to the presidency who doesn't take care of the job they have got nobody to blame but themselves."

Whatever we call him, he is what he is. It is our problem if we do not grow and learn from this mistake.
