We will survive

Dear Editor,

The election is over. The Electoral College won and the American voter lost. Webster's defines voting as "the collective opinion or verdict of a body of persons." Talk about bastardizing.

In order to acquiesce the south, in 1787 the Constitution allowed southern states to count their slaves as voters without the right to vote. The voters from those states to this day carry more weight in the Electoral College.

Try as we may, we have not been able to amend that antiquated blot in the Constitution. With both a Republican congress and president, it is unlikely that we'll see it updated in the near future.

But America has survived the likes of presidents such as Filmore, Pierce, Buchanan and Harding, all akin to Trump's presidential inadequacy, and we will and must once again survive.

Sincerely,

Nicholas Zizelis

Bayside
