Divided we fall

Thursday, May 9, 2019


Dear Editor,

Democratic Socialist and presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders wants to give convicted felons in the prison system the right to vote in the upcoming election. What a brilliant idea! How else will they get the opportunity to vote down laws that placed them into prison in the first place? One vote can change the law.

This is as clever as allowing Democrats control of the House, allowing them to make up laws as they go along, and ignore laws already on the books that don’t fit their agenda. What could go wrong with that?

The echo chamber of hate, slander and lies needs to be silenced. The name calling, verbal attacks and character assination is nothing more than a never ending power grab that is going nowhere. All the lip service in the world has never changed one thing. Responsible voters need to vote out the perpetrators and their juvenile tactics. If allowed to continue unchecked they will destroy this country and our freedoms. And folks, we are a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy. Democracy is mob rule. The rich, elite and powerful have control; the common working man has no say.

We would be better served if all the spent energy went to pulling this country together, instead of pulling it apart. United we stand, divided, we fall. Is that what you want? You make the choice.
