President needs to do something to stop drug plague

To the Editor:

Chickens will usually come home to roost as will our country when we have a knowledgeable and caring “farmer” to oversee the flock.

United States presidents are the overseers of our success. They cannot ignore their “flock” when a disease spreads.

There is an awful disease, which has spread like wildfire throughout our country and it is called illicit drugs. For the past 40-plus years, this plague has and is destroying our people from children to adults.

Not one mention was made by either Presidential candidate as to what his plan would be to stop the drug wars coming across our borders and those illicit drugs being made here.

A recent TV show showed the 14,000-plus homeless and drug-ridden people living under bridges and in tunnels in Las Vegas alone, not counting the masses all over our country and the billions of dollars being made by the “drug lords.”

Abortion destroys lives, but illicit drugs also destroy children whose parents are addicted. The children live the remainder of their lives abnormally.

I’d like to see our President take the men and women fighting for us on foreign soil and the wasted billions of dollars on people who don’t even like us and bring them home to clean up our streets from this plague that is rampant.

Don’t be afraid of China, Russia, or any other country as long as we stand up and first fight to take care of our own people in order that we can be strong and face adversity in whatever direction it comes from.

We need someone in authority to oversee the “flock” of our people from this terrible plague. We wait impatiently to see what the President does.
