Feared and Censored

Hillary Clinton is disliked by The Wall Street Journal but Donald Trump apparently terrifies it to the point that it censors and refuses to publish comments about its essays regarding the coming election such as the following:

There is something terribly -- and quite possibly terminally -- wrong with a political system in which citizens are limited to choosing which of two unsuitable, unqualified, and reprehensible major party candidates will fill and exercise the powers of the nation's highest office.

This sordid situation proves two things -- the wisdom of the republic's founders in endeavoring to guard against its degeneration into a democracy and the accuracy of the adage that scum inevitably rises to the top of every rain barrel.
