Letter: Foreign powers seek to fill void U.S. leaves on world stage

To the Editor:

Thinking people are noticing a distinct alignment of our current presidential leadership with the same authoritarian tendencies of Russia.

Ridicule the rule of law, malign the agencies of law, i.e. media, FBI, Department of Justice at many levels of our government, seeming to flout the very foundation of a free society we enjoy as a nation. This chipping away is exactly the game plan of the Russian leadership, as witnessed by the ongoing efforts of not only Russia, but other foreign governments who are making a worldwide move to replace teh U.S. as the ideological and benevolent leader of the free world.

As we shrink away, these powers, i.e. China and Russia, seize upon this change of position of U.S. policy to slip in and fill the void we as a nation create. This policy being fostered by our current leadership will possibly lead to great change in the world we now enjoy.

It could be a dangerous and deadly outcome.
