Several recent letters exemplify the rigid right's hatred of liberals, specifically our president.
One writer equated compromise with failure and declared that the American prototype is one team wins and the other team loses. His team alone exemplifies America's constitutional principles. He cites our founding documents but ignores the tenets of collective benefit (all are equal) and "promote the general welfare."
He's correct, this isn't a game. It's deadly serious to millions of Americans crippled by the unfair advantages legislated to self-serving capitalists, who deny civic responsibility. In our current "battle," the best final score for the American majority is always a tie.
Another writer alleged our president insincerely drones on about his concern for the middle class. Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, et al., are genuine while numbingly chanting their mantra of talking points, ad nauseum?
Never miss a local story.
Space prohibits enumerating counterpoints to her specious assertions, but concerted, balanced research informs better if one earnestly seeks the facts. Reality is indisputable -- both political parties and all presidents perform both admirably and dismally in their governing roles. To experience time warp, vote Republican, and the "righteous" will police your bedroom, decree whom to love and keep the barefoot ladies pregnant, while the older women staff the nursery at the Christian church you're "encouraged" to join.
Rabid Republicans seek to abolish all rights of workers to unite. They will feed their war machine by sacrificing children, seniors, minorities, the poor and sick, and our polluted planet.
