I totally agree with my classmate Bill Rice, who pointed out in his letter to the editor that any differences in wages earned by men and women are not based on discrimination.
That is just another ploy to muddy the water and create division and dissension in this election year.
It falls in the same category as promoting race war and blaming the rich for the flight of the poor.
The name of this game is misdirection, misinformation, obfuscation and smoke and mirrors.
As voters, we need to penetrate the smoke screen, ignore the political bombast and check out what those running for office really stand for.
The responsibility for how we vote rests fully upon each one of us, and the future of our nation hangs in the balance.
Remember this: A politician's promises are like soap bubbles. They are pretty to look at, but they don't last long.
This election may well determine whether or not the United States will continue to exist as a sovereign nation.
This is not a time for blind loyalty to a political party.
It is a time to take a serious look at our future.
We owe our allegiance to those who will inherit the outcome of the mistakes that we make.
That is something to think about.
William A. Roy
