Everyburg Address

Too many months ago our major political parties brought forth upon this nation a campaign to elect the next president of the United States.

We are interminably engaged in this epic battle to determine which candidate is best qualified to attain the highest elective office in the land.

Many candidates in one party have fallen, not having sufficiently enticed a besieged public to their pseudo-patriotic bluster. In the other party, where a modicum of sanity can be detected, three candidates entered the fray, one of whom has bitten the dust.

It is altogether fitting and proper that we see this campaign through to November. But it is questionable whether this nation, conceived on democratic principles, can withstand the battering of those principles by candidates whose standard bearer was our beloved sixteenth president.

Let us pray that somehow the electorate will survive the lies, hypocrisy, racism, xenophobia, and sleazy discourse of those candidates, and that we, now suffering this destructive display, will overcome it, and that this nation — of the people, by the people, and for the people — shall not perish after January 2017.
