Voters are the masters of their fate

By Letter to the Editor on July 18, 2020.

The public complains about the blatant corruption in political leaders.

After all, a leader can arrogantly profess to be a continuously unrepentant sinner in one country, and the voters will elect him for his honesty.

While in another country, a leader can profess to be an ever repentant continuously reoffending sinner and the voters will elect him for his humility.

(With apologies to Shakepeare) We voters are at some time masters of our fate.

The fault dear voters is not in our stars, but in ourselves that we are thus governed.
