I have just voted in my 15th consecutive presidential election and wish to address the many angry Republican voters who have been writing to The Sun to mourn the passing of America's primacy. Please give us a break. Of the 15 elections I have participated in, I have voted for the winner in only seven. Now it's your turn. You lost. Your opinions do not hold water.
Remember this: you have been wrong on every important issue in the 20th century. The country is still secure and will remain so under Democratic stewardship just as it did through the 1990s and now in the second decade of the 21st century. We can do just fine with or without your cooperation. If we could survive eight years of George W. Bush, you can survive 2009 to 2017.
To quote an elder of some note, "If you take the time, I'm sure you'll find, that you get what you need." Now let's all shut up and get back to work!
Thomas E. Davies, Towson
