Letter to the Editor: Mečiar and Clinton cannot be trusted

Dear Sir,

The best thing Mečiar can do now is resign and stay out of Slovakia's government [re: Vol. 4 No. 22, Oct. 12-18, "Analysts say Premier will return to politics"]. He is very much like America's Clinton. Both are continuous professional liars and deceive the people by their carefully chosen words. Unfortunately, too many common people do not see through this facade. Both throw out their nice smiles and "caring" words to try and woo the people.

Now Americans are finding out that Clinton cannot be trusted. Mečiar cannot be trusted either. He doesn't understand what democracy means-any form of it. In a democracy, the government cannot close radio stations or control what is said on TV. Freedom of the press and freedom of expression are paramount for this system to work. He doesn't want that; he wants to control the Slovak people and lead them by the nose to his whims.
