All of the screeching, screaming women in the Senate chambers last Saturday was the result of what Democrats refer to as democracy. Many misinformed and uninformed Republicans mistakenly refer to our form of government as a “democracy.”

The founders created a republican form of government rather than a democracy for many reasons. Theoretically, a democracy requires the full participation of the masses of the people in the legislative or decision-making processes of government. This has never worked. The Greeks tried to use democratic mass participation in the government of their city-states, and each time it ended in tyranny.

Socialist Democrats in control of the Democrat Party are determined to take over the government of the United States even if it means destruction of the constitution and the republic. We have about six weeks to stop the takeover. The November congressional election is our last chance to stop the illegal takeover by whatever means they choose.

The so-called Democrats are willing to lie, falsely accuse innocent people and destroy anyone who is affiliated with President Trump by whatever means they can contrive. Their latest caper is to destroy Trpump’s Supreme Court nominee by accusing him of molesting a girl when he was in high school. It was more than 30 years ago when he was a teenager if it happened at all. This should not be a consideration at this time when considering his qualifications for the court.

As I watched portions of the five-day funeral of Senator John McCain, it reminded me of the exceptional characters I have known. One Army officer would make McCain look like an amateur prankster. He was a US Military Academy Graduate and a Lieutenant Colonel when I served in his organization in Bremerhaven, Germany in 1957-58.

Ltd. Fred Smaltz was a combat veteran who participated in the Normandy Invasion of WW II. Smaltz was a striking figure, well over 6- feet tall, shaved head and an unruly mustache. His wife Gail was a tall, red headed nurse.

I was an early supporter of Senator John McCain for president of the United States. John was a "military Brat." Both his father and grandfather retired as four-star admirals. I first met John at Tommy's Country Ham House in Greenville during his first campaign for president. We had a very brief conversation about his father. I informed him that I was assigned to his father's CINCPAC staff during the Vietnam War era, when his father was Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Command. He commented that not a day passed that he did not think about his father. His mother is still living and is more than 100 years of age.
