To quote Rodney King’s plaintive plea …”can’t we all get along?” was brought sharply into focus after reading the letters in the Oct. 28 edition of the Mountain Democrat.
One letter stood out from all the rest because of the vitriol. Harsh and caustic commentary towards others who do not share your political ideology is not the way to win a debate. Facts, facts and facts coupled with a reasoned, rational delivery would be more effective.
My fellow Americans, our poor country is falling apart very quickly as one ideology fights to become the only ideology. This ongoing struggle has paralyzed Congress and has brought misery upon our most vulnerable citizens. I believe we all know that compromise is the key to any long-lasting success. However, such success will never come about if the ideological vitriol is allowed to continue.
Let’s talk facts with reasoned and logical recourse with the good of the majority of the people as the outcome …”can’t we all get along?”
