To the editor:

Bang the drum slowly.

In the next four years:

  • Another war with (pick one): Syria, Iran, North Korea.
  • Thirty percent (or more) reductions in Social Security benefits for those due to retire in the next five to 10 years.
  • Across-the-board major cuts in social service and public health programs.
  • Further shifting of the tax burden to the poor and middle class, such as by a "flat tax" or national sales tax.
  • Erosion of Roe v. Wade.

And so on ...

Clip this list and keep score at home.
