Our country deserves a better direction than that promised and provided by either the Republican or Democratic party or any other political party for that matter.
Our country deserves a better direction than that promised and provided by either the Republican or Democratic party or any other political party for that matter. I encourage citizens to speak up and speak out against those whose partisanship is leading our beloved Nation down the wrong path. Both major political parties and their current leaders need to focus on a bigger, bolder, more confident future for the United States - a future based on problem solving, inclusiveness, and a willingness to address the trust deficit, which is every bit as corrosive as our fiscal and economic deficits. We should stand shoulder to shoulder with all of our fellow citizens in order to solve the tremendous problems of partisanship, the deficit, and caring for those less fortunate, and not with any political party. Those office seekers at any level who mistakenly affiliate themselves with a party for perceived political or financial support are part of the problem not part of the solution. They are obliged to only speak the party line, right or wrong. By doing so, they clearly demonstrate their lack of independent thought, leadership, and the intestinal fortitude to put the common good ahead of their selfish political interests and they clearly demonstrate that they are not the right person to represent the common good. Only through our collective voice and individual votes at election time will we solve the problems that our Nation faces. Thank you. Bob Dils Waynesville, Missouri
