Chris Steinbach, Editor of The Muscatine Journal, praises Alan Guebert’s assessment of our current political landscape while encouraging readers to cast their ballots on Election Day.
“In a column today on page 1C, syndicated columnist Alan Guebert says we have the government we deserve. ‘We handed off our responsibilities for neighbors, communities and the nation to a class of professional politicians who told us what we wanted to hear: we could have it all-roads, bridges, wars, pensions, schools, aircraft carriers, health care, clean water-and not pay for it all,’ he says. ‘We – you and I -have checked out. We can’t have participatory democracy if we don’t participate.’”
