In my view, America is in a state of decline and, while I retain at least a modicum of hope, I am at a point where I will avoid expectations. A major issue is the overwhelming inclination to be politically correct.
A recent example of someone who dared to avoid political correctness is Donald Trump. While I am not a supporter of Mr. Trump, his statements did provide a breath of fresh air. He dared say what many of us think.
On the plus side, I am encouraged by the quality of many presidential candidates. It is my hope and prayer that from this group will emerge a leader who can restore America to what America should be. And, as I see it, Hillary is not the answer.
