In response to Douglas C. Tate (Your Views, Aug. 8): I agree that Marxism (communism, socialism) is where we're headed. I've heard every excuse in the world for denying that that's possible, and nothing has happened to make me change my mind. Quite the contrary, my belief has been strengthened.
A prominent member of the Soviet Union once boasted that the USSR would destroy the United States from within. All evidence suggests this boast is coming true and that it's happening now. Think about the economy, the joblessness, the reckless spending. Has anybody considered that the economic destruction of the United States was planned in detail and that that plan is being executed, step by step, as we sit idly by and watch it happen?
The presidential election is less than 100 days from now. Either we remain the greatest republic ever known, or we suffer the most tragic defeat ever. God give us the sense to choose the republic.
