Toast with apricot jam and cafe au lait.

We conclude our review of U.S. Senate candidates with Herbert G. Peters, who offers a history lesson, lots of sentence fragments, and idiosyncratic punctuation:

“Andrew Jackson Democrat. Our first 70 years; our country grew and flourished. We had no income tax. Motto: Manifest Destiny. Democrat Presidents; were most wise: Andrew Jackson balanced budget seven of eight years. Franklin Pierce vetoed a federal welfare bill. To reverse downward spiral of last 118 years: balance our budget, resist war, reduce costs, reduce taxes, repeal welfare and minimum wage so all can find jobs. Churches and Charities help needful. Reduce opression: replace income tax with sales tax. Goal: better life for all.”

Imagine Thanksgiving with Uncle Herb, explaining once again how replacing the income tax with a sales tax will reduce oppression.
