Letter: A Corrupt System Collapses

To the Editor:

All discouraged patriots must applaud House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for shutting down the federal government. We have neared the final collapse of the American system of brutal capitalism at the helm of a corrupt and misguided government.

When it’s time to pick up the pieces, we can ask Angela Merkel to design a new system for the people who rescued her country after the war. Within a few years, we could very well live as well as the Germans.
