Letter to the Editor: Our Democracy Imperiled

President Biden wants to end a two-decades-old war that could never be won and that cost the United States dearly in lives and treasure, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wants him impeached. 

Never mind that our former president signed off on the agreement to leave Afghanistan. Never mind that our former president undermined our democracy through election lies and helped to organize an attempted insurrection. Never mind that our former president misled his followers about the COVID-19 epidemic, costing countless lives. 

It used to be that in times of national crises, our country would come together. In my lifetime of 75 years, our democracy has never been so imperiled, and it is the Republican Party that is the threat.
