Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Mark my words, fellow Americans. If there’s still an America around when congressional mid-term elections take place, in late 2014, you’ll have a huge responsibility. You’ll have to show the world that this is still is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Vote out the incumbents, all of them, and give some new blood a try. If you don’t, you will regret it.George N. Root III is a proud American who is counting on the people to do the right thing. His column appears every Wednesday, so long as we still have a country that will read it. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
