The United States is slowly losing its standing as a democracy. It’s becoming a “takeover” by persons known and unknown. George Orwell’s “1984,” President Dwight Eisenhower’s warning, “Beware of the military-industrial complex,” to name a few historical references.

To think that any person can basically submit what amounts to be a fraudulent document in many cases, registering to vote via the Internet or U.S. Postal Service is unconscionable.

I recall, with pride, emigrating to the U.S. and waiting six years to apply for naturalization and finally receiving the honor; how I looked forward to becoming a person with say in the future of this country.

I went with my naturalization certificate to our local library and registered, having to prove I was a citizen and swear to the documentation. I’ve carried my voter registration on my person with pride ever since.

Now the Supreme Court is indicating by their recent decision on Arizona’s voter ID law, “what the heck”; if they’re hangin’ their hat here, let them vote. What a misguided Country!!!

As an older citizen, I can appreciate how younger generations and immigrants are oblivious to what’s taking place. Liberal educators aren’t teaching them the importance of lessons to be learned from the blunders and consequences paid by societies of the past.
