Letter: Considering recent events, I will not be celebrating Independence Day this year

Wannemacher writes, "In a nation consumed for the past two years with the delusions of a side show hustler and his election scam, a major political party that agrees the unfettered right to possess guns is more important than the lives of its own citizen and a Supreme Court capable to stripping the rights of an entire gender of American to the bone, independence hardly seems an appropriate sentiment to celebrate."

I will not be celebrating Independence Day this year. In a nation consumed for the past two years with the delusions of a side show hustler and his election scam, a major political party that agrees the unfettered right to possess guns is more important than the lives of its own citizen and a Supreme Court capable to stripping the rights of an entire gender of American to the bone, independence hardly seems an appropriate sentiment to celebrate.

I’ll be sitting this out until independence is actually something to celebrate again.
