Letter to the editor: The birth of fascism

To the editor:

Fellow Americans, we are at a crossroads. If Americans do not step forward right now and stop this creeping fascism, America as we know it will not exist anymore. It took the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, 15 years but he’s accomplished what he set out to do, which is to make Turkey a fascist nation with a dictator as its leader with almost unlimited power. I’m very serious about this, and you who know me know that I accurately predicted what Sam Brownback did to Kansas and what Donald Trump is doing to our nation. Republicans in Congress are allowing Trump to run roughshod over our Constitution.

It’s time to stop being so hopeful, compliant and prayerful that things will turn out right. I’m all for the power of prayer, but unless everyone across the nation votes in the midterm election, we will wake up again wondering what happened!
