Dear Editor,

Being born in the eighties, I am ignorant of the impact the sixties had on it people. I fear, however, that I am doomed to suffer a similar fate with the current administration. We have a simpering, spoiled child in office who thinks himself a king who answers to no one.Sadder still, this 'king' has tried to make clothes of our war in Iraq. What has been accomplished? Almost six years after 9/11, Osama bin Laden is still alive and his organization is still training terrorists. We are funneling billions of dollars into a war while our education and health care programs are on a steady decline. We are destroying foreign policy and becoming despised by more and more people around the world. Worse still, this isn't a war on terror. Not really, as there are other places in the world where terrorism exist everyday that few people even know about. By maintaining such a closed scope, our administration has proven that this is a war of preservation at best. At worst, we have allowed our king to exact a 'might makes right' strategy and unleash it on the world. There is a danger in believe that being right allows you to do whatever you want. Bush has proven that. Our next president will have the undaunting task of fixing the abortion this war has become, finally giving acceptable health care to our citizenry, smoothing over the global damage to our foreign policy, and hardest of all: regaining the trust of a country betrayed by the very people sworn to loyally govern it. First things first: The war in Iraq should never have been authorized, never have been waged, and it must end now. Teach Bush what he should have learned in grade school: this is a democracy, and here you serve they people, not your own agenda.

Thank you for your time.

Your reader, Ruby R Sedgley
