In her three terms as our elected representative in the 21st Congressional District, Elise Stefanik has proven to be evasive, uncommunicative to many in her area and totally obsessed with her admiration and support of former President Donald Trump. How does this short term in elective office prepare her for one of the top Republican positions?

Her main talent seems to be kissing up to the most disliked former president in more than 200 years. She will be a parrot for Republicans in the House and Senate who have broken their oaths of office, have shown disdain for the Constitution and think only about lies and their own quests for power at the sake of Democracy in our country.

Where is her sense of the truth and her regard for the opinions of most Americans? Ms. Stefanik has evolved into the wrong person to represent us in the north country!

She has no moral center, but I don’t really agree with much of what the writer says. The congresswoman has my sympathy because who really wants to be an immoral servant? I hope the scales fall from her eyes soon.


Joy for human beings lies in proper human work. And proper human work consists in: acts of kindness to other human beings, disdain for the stirrings of the senses, identifying trustworthy impressions, and contemplating the natural order and all that happens in keeping with it.

It’s unfortunate there have been so few leaders who aspired to the greatness of Marcus Aurelius.
