Regarding J. Peder Zane’s March 9 column “Why Trump is just a symptom”: I hear the arguments that both parties are the same, voting makes no difference.
Maybe that’s true, and I can’t say I like either party, but it is clear that one party is for cutting taxes and expenses, hang the consequences, and that “welfare” programs are first and most deeply cut.
The other party, castigated as “tax and spend,” at least wants to and does spend some money on programs to help us low-middle and lower socioeconomic classes.
The most disturbing thing to me about Zane’s column is the lack of emotion, of concern, of caring. As if this is the implacable way of capitalism, and we need do nothing about it. As if it is not government or business’ job or duty to do anything to change this course.
If so, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! It will get a lot worse – and in the not too distant future.
