I feel compelled to reply to Paul Epley's commentary in the July 6 edition of the Steamboat Pilot & Today. First of all, Mr. Epley, let's not talk about 232 years of economic progress (much of which was made possible by the genocide of the original inhabitants of this country and the subsequent appropriation and abuse of the land, not to mention the real economic leverage that slavery offers). Let's just talk about the last eight years.
Unless you're a millionaire, your economic situation is worse now than it was eight years ago, by pretty much any standard of measurement. Your guys had their chance, and they blew it badly. It's time for someone who has some different ideas about how to bring us together under the principles of democracy, rather than plutocracy (not to mention that he can speak using correct grammar without embarrassing himself and offending others).
