So many are angry and defiant


To the Editor:

Yesterday, someone told me that I was uninformed about the government and President Obama. The point the person was making had nothing to do with being “informed.” It had to do with a snide Republican opinion.

I’ve noticed that the opposition sounds angry and defiant, much like the South after the end of the Civil War.

Why can’t it be a win/win instead of a win/lose? Why can’t it be life serving instead of life alienating?

Sometimes it seems suspicion, contempt, disrespect, separation, and misunderstanding are more common Why do we celebrate the ways to enrich our lives and then spend the remainder of the time destroying it?
