It’s Primary Season in the USA

So close to the American elephant, border encrusted Canadians watch every move

To the editor;

Like many Canadians, I have a close eye on this Primary Season in the

United States.

So close to the American elephant, we border encrusted Canadians watch every move.

Donald Trump is alarming.  His competition is waning.  Hilary Clinton is a known Washington operative. Bernie Sander knows Washington but is less “of”  it.

He’s a what? A  Democratic Socialist!

Leornard Cohen in his poem, Democracy,   presented the USA in this light.

“It’s here they got the range

and the machinery for change

and it’s here they got the spiritual thirst.

Cohen adds ( and in this I see Bernie Sanders )

I’m stubborn as those garbage bags that Time cannot decay,

I’m junk but I’m still holding up this little wild bouquet:

Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.”

The elephant shudders.  Will it stand?
