Finding common ground

Dear Editor,

There is a poison running wild in Washington and I don’t mean Trump. I’m referring to those who are called “Conservatives” and “Liberals.”

Watching the impeachment hearings/trial and the Democratic debates have shown me that Barnum and Bailey are no longer the king of the circus and they certainly don’t have the market on the clowns. We are in serious trouble my fellow Americans and the sad part is that after the November election it’s not gonna be any better regardless of who you vote for. If you think ANY political party is going to act in or serve in the best interest of WE THE PEOPLE, you got your head stuck where the sun don’t shine. That type of politics has been gone for a very long time. Our UNITED STATES came to be because of dialogue that was respectful which in turn gave us solutions that led to progress. The result of this sequence gave us a strong balanced country. It ain’t gonna happen with the people we have in our government.

If you feel that electing anyone from your party is going to put us on the right path that has been absent for the last 25 or 30 years then just remember one thing, what you have is what you’re gonna get in return. What you read in the newspapers, see on the T.V., read on facebook or social media is leading America to a deeper infection and a rapid decline to our freedoms. Let me say one more thing that proves my point. On the local level, right here in good ole Warren, gather a group of Democrats and Republicans (say 4 each) make sure they’re all friends and sit down and discuss politics. I really dare you to do that. YOU CAN’T DO IT AND REMAIN CIVIL OR FRIENDS! I have tried to figure out how this all happened and I haven’t the slightest clue. 70 plus years and this is what I get. It’s a bunch of crap and no matter how hard I try, I don’t like what’s gonna happen. The worse is yet to come. Hang on, it’s a bumpy ride with no end in sight. I would like see a reply without mentioning a political party. You probably can’t do that, either. I remember the good ole days (50’s, 60’s and 70’s). I’m glad I have something good to remember. The future looks mighty gray to me.

Thank you Warren,

Richard Lowe,
