To The Daily Sun,
I read your letters column almost every day. Some days I get a chuckle and some days I get a belly laugh from the letters written about political candidates. It seems that most everyone has a candidate that they will harangue us with the reasons why they like or dislike him or her and why we should vote or not vote for that person.
Personally I like to hear, why I should vote for a candidate. I'm always afraid that when a writer berates a candidate hoping I won't vote for that person, that the writer is trying to draw attention away from the failings of the candidate they support.
Well, I think I may have stumbled upon a way to make everyone happy. i suggest that the government draw a line from north to south through the center of a map of the United States. Then, get the leaders of the two major parties to flip a coin and the winner gets to pick east or west America. Then all the people who support that party would be required to move to that territory. People in that territory not of that party would of course be required to move to the other half of the country.
Now that we have everyone who thinks alike segregated, there shouldn't be any name-calling or crude remarks made about a candidate for any office in their part of the country. I know you are asking yourself where Independent voters would live. Well, I suggest Alaska, with the overflow to go to Hawaii.
I don't expect any thanks for my brilliant idea. It is the duty of every American to help our government in any crisis. So you can expect me to come up with other wild schemes when necessary.
