Leadership shortage 

To the editor:
 Remember Hillary Clinton’s question ad of her first run for president: “Who do you want answering the phone at 3 a.m.?” She lost that election, but Barack Obama, evidently, agreed with her being the one by making her secretary of state.

We all know what happened when the call for help from Benghazi came — she didn’t answer the phone, and four men died.

Fast forward, and she is again running for president, citing her familiarity with the White House, brief Senate seat and experience as secretary of state as qualifications. Her chutzpah and sense of entitlement are unmatched.

The fact that she is being seriously challenged by an avowed socialist, Bernie Sanders, reflects a desperate electorate.

On the other side, Republicans are calling each other names rather than recognizing the fast-approaching collapse of our economy, warning people or proposing solutions.

The Federal Reserve has flooded the world with paper dollars, exploding the U.S. debt to more than $19 trillion, it devalued the major exchange currency, putting us on the verge of economic collapse, and no candidate has the nerve talk about it. God help us!
