I’m very concerned. The likely Republican presidential nominee, in my opinion, wants the government to be run like a business. This to me means: limit constraints, calculate relationships by what we get in return, punish your detractors, and hold the reins tight as the one and only boss. This is not democracy, this is a dictatorship.

Trump has pretty much said that is what he wants to do. I’m not sure this is a model that the United States wants to promote, especially with a person who has proven that he is not able to run an effective business. How many bankruptcies has he endured? Are there any successes?

I recognize the failure of trickle-down economics. It seems to be more a flash of cash to the few. I am a fan of feed the middle-class worker. It seems to be working very well.

We have limited choices this election season, but saving our democracy should be our No. 1 priority.
