LETTER: Won’t vote for divisive politics

I’m so frustrated with the political landscape right now.

There is so much rancor emanating from the president and many of his party.


I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up we were taught not to speak ill of another person, not to belittle those less fortunate and to tell the truth no matter what the consequences.

There was a difference between right and wrong.

We, the people of this town, our town, haven’t lost these qualities.

When I go around town and deal with shopkeepers, or cashiers in grocery stores or public officials, there’s no rancor.

People are nice to each other.

People are thoughtful about the feelings of others.

People smile.

What a joy to see a lovely smile.

So, I’ve decided not to allow “them” to take over my country and the ideals I believe in.

If the people in power in Washington, D.C., wish to divide us, I won’t let them.

What can I do?

I can vote for Democrats in November to prove that the America I believe in is still real.

And you can do the same.

A message must be sent.

Civility, honesty and principles count.

Pam Carter,
