Reader's View: Stauber sounds like Trump copycat

Reader's View: GOP is the unchecked authoritarian power
As a lifelong Democrat, in response to the Sept. 13 letter, "Unchecked power leads to despotism," I believe the unchecked authoritarian power of our present day is the Republican Party. It controls the House of Representatives, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the presidency, and 30-plus...
