To The Daily Sun,
For at least eight years we have seen what Washington is capable of delivering when elected lawmakers head to D.C. carrying an extreme policy torch they feel righteous about. Within days, these forces collide and we have nothing but competing infernos, with no logic or daylight in sight. The liberal left plainly see the conservative right as a barrier, and vice versa. Can the left see their own actions as a barrier, or vice versa? Doubtful. This election, to really create a revolution, we shouldn't elect candidates who promise they won't be liked, who say, "They're going to have to play by my rules," or that want to build walls, kill people, etc.
People are rightfully angry with politics. To fix it, we have to choose better and with a focus on uniting one country despite our diverse beliefs. That means shaping public policy the majority of Americans support, and leading progress on those issues where the nation has yet to coalesce. There are times where moderation yields more of what you need, and where aggression defeats your purpose. I'm tired of the fighting and the extremes on both sides of the political aisle. I'm ready for Hillary, because she's ready for the real job the next president will need to accomplish. Progress that moves the country and the world forward, not more conflict that only holds us back.
