The misnomer in the slogan "Make America Great Again" needs clarification. America consists of North, Central and South America. Therefore, when verbalizing the aforementioned slogan President Trump not only failed his supporters and fellow citizens. He failed our part of the hemisphere.
So, let's work to make the "United States of America" great again. In so doing we will make our country more humane, respected, trustworthy, and a trusted friend, neighbor and ally.

We expect better
I read with total amazement the op-ed by State Sen. Rob Sampson, in which he falsely claims that “The facts prove ...” that the president didn’t lead an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and inspire the violence seen on Jan. 6th. If Mr. Sampson would only watch the president’s speech to the crowd (“If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”) and review his comments after the domestic terrorist incidence finally ended (“We love you. You're very special."), Mr. Simpson would understand why the president was impeached for the second time, this time with ten Republicans courageously joining in the vote.
Mr. Sampson, you are entitled to your opinion, but we will not allow you to make up “alternate” facts. You should be ashamed of yourself. You are an elected state representative and you took an oath of office. Start acting like a responsible adult and stop lying and aiding the right-wing domestic terrorists who are threatening our democracy. We expect better of our elected representatives.
