Letter: Make America great: Impeach Trump

The purpose of our government (or, in corporate-speak, the government’s mission statement) is clearly stated in the first paragraph of the preamble to the Constitution. Its elements are (1) to form a more perfect union, (2) establish justice, (3) insure domestic tranquility, (4) provide for the common defense, (5) promote the general welfare, and (6) secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

The current administration has not moved toward any of these elements. Our union is divided, justice is uneven at best, domestic tranquility has been trashed, our common defense is politically weak (although we have the mightiest military in the world), general welfare is being dismantled, and attempts at repression of liberty by this administration run rampant. The disregard for the oath of office taken by our current president to protect and defend the Constitution is a disgrace to our democracy. It’s time to impeach. That is the best way to begin to make America great again.
