Letter: What happened to ‘The buck stops here’

The buck stops, but not here

There are some things I have heard lately that I find very disturbing.

Point Number One: In the late ’40s early ’50s we had a Democratic president named Harry S. Truman. Harry had his fair share of problems as our president. But Harry had a sign on his desk that said, “The Buck Stops Here.” I find it disturbing that our current Democratic president says that the buck stops everyplace else but here.

Point Number Two: I hear now that the Democrats are demanding we give amnesty to the illegal aliens in this country and then we will close the border. This is the same lie they gave President Reagan. He signed the amnesty bill but the Democrats never closed the border.

One has to wonder what is wrong with the people of this country who keep electing people who do not keep their word or honor their oaths of office.

I, for one, have not.
