Reader letters, Thursday: Fearing for the future of a ‘free society’ – Opinion – Savannah Morning News

Fearing for the future of a ‘free society’

I, of course, like many others, am saddened at the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, long a hero of mine. And of course, knowing her end was near, I hoped she would live until another administration was elected.

I am stunned at how the incumbents are so ready to replace her, with no show of grief or any sense of respecting her last wishes to wait to fill her place until a new group is sworn in.

Listening and watching the politics of today, I feel that my America is leaving me. I can only say that very few people really care about freedom, about liberty, about the truth. Very few people have guts, the kind of guts on which a real democracy has to depend.

Without people with that sort of guts a free society dies or cannot be born.

A vote for Biden is vote for more government

For bigger more intrusive government, vote for Joe Biden. For Washington to take more of your money, vote Biden.

Self-reliance is on the wane. It is sad that more Americans now want the federal government to take care of them. Remember what John F. Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
