Regarding “Foreign terrorists never our biggest threat,” (Sept. 10): The Republicans giveth and the Republicans taketh away, to borrow and amend a biblical quote. The Abraham Lincoln Republicans of the 1860s were willing to embark upon a civil war that resulted in some 750,000 deaths and ended the crime against humanity: Black slavery. Now, 155 years after the war, the Republicans have another goal: limiting minority voting rights. And, that attempt is cloaked in other words — “protection of our elections” being foremost. Inflamed by the likes of the most unqualified, unprincipled man in our political history to be our president, people are putting our democracy in danger. Witness Jan. 6, 2021. Treason, pure and simple, with most of the perpetrators still walking the streets. Paul Krugman is a first-rate reporter and intellect. Take the time to read his column. Our country's democratic political system is truly endangered.
