Letter: Get on board with the new "great" America

Apparently character has taken a backseat to our new great America. In recognition we should all change the way we raise our children and grandchildren.

Apparently character has taken a backseat to our new great America. In recognition we should all change the way we raise our children and grandchildren.

Boastfulness, impulsiveness, spite and intolerance should be encouraged. Narcissism and misogyny should be viewed as blessings, not curses. Instruct our children that anything they say or think is true, while anything they disagree with is fake. Lying, when done consistently, is the truth. Reinforce that the biggest stick with the most money always wins.Thoughtfulness, empathy and reason are so yesterday.

Always blame others for problems while taking full credit for successes. Jesus would totally agree. Get on board with the new "great" America. I'm not affiliated with any political party, but I approve this message.

Gilbertson lives in Fargo.
