July 4, 2017: Del Rio News-Herald * OPINION * Letter to the Editor * Drain the swamp

Letter to the Editor,

Drain the Swamp

Swamps are areas teeming with animal life; some animals live in the low-oxygen water like the Spendthrift Shrimp, some animals live at the surface of the water like the Corrupt Crocodile, some animals live above the water like the Wasteful Woodpecker, and other animals live in the spongy areas of land surrounding the swamp like the Red Wolf.

During the last election the populace of this great and glorious land voted to send the Red Wolves to the Washington, D.C. Swamp to devour and destroy the Spendthrift Shrimps, the Corrupt Crocodiles and the Wasteful Woodpeckers.

The three branches of once beautiful, free flowing streams; the Executive Branch of the President and Administration Officers, the Legislative Branch of the Senate and House of Representatives and the Judicial Branch of the Supreme Court and lower Courts, had clogged up and caused the swamp to form a breeding ground fertile for the creation of dangerous and deceitful demagogues who spewed destruction and devastation throughout the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The populace overwhelmingly demanded that the Red Wolves drain the Washington, D.C. Swamp and restore it to its former glory as it was first envisioned by its namesake George Washington, the first President of this new nation and all its founding members, who came together to create one nation under God with liberty and justice for all, who came as citizen leaders to serve and not to be served, to give and not to take, to fulfill their duty with dignity and integrity and not to cause shame and scandal and then to return back to their hometowns and not become overly paid scavenger governmental lobbyists and consultants.

The fiscally responsible demanded the Red Wolves to drain the swamp of all the Spendthrift Shrimps, the Corrupt Crocodiles and the Wasteful Woodpeckers along with all their sullied and stinky sewerage.

The Red Wolves have the power and the strength to stomp out the Spendthrift Shrimps, to corral the Corrupt Crocodiles and to wipe out the Wasteful Woodpeckers.
