To The Daily Sun,
A fellow resident of Gilford, Johan Andersen says he doesn’t understand the thinking of his political opponents. By his measure they have moved so far beyond logic he finds it impossible to relate to them. This observation scares him to the point he now fears increased violence can become the perceived solution as differences widen and fester. Put me in total agreement with Mr. Andersen's view but from the opposing camp of the capitalists and conservatives.
Let me point out, it has become the exclusive aim of Democrats to pour gasoline on those differences in hopes of creating a political advantage at the voting booth. The easy way to view this first hand is one minute at a Bernie Sanders rally where the total focus is spent stoking envy and selling the illusion of entitlement. The economy may be in the garbage can. But you want hear one word from Bernie on how to fix that.
Democrats aren't going to create "new prosperity." They are merely going to hijack what exists under some fictional cloak of philanthropy. AN OUTCOME OF EQUALITY NO WHERE PROMISED OR EVEN INTIMATED IN THE CONSTITUTION. It's unilateral, peephole political thinking from one party, with the sole purpose to improve election chances. What puzzles me is why is it so hard for people like Mr. Anderson to understand how that might bring out the very worst reactions from millions of people. Preaching entitlement, stoked with envy as gasoline is indeed a sure and certain path to ever increasing violence tied to an ever declining prosperity for just about every one. America didn't become the most exceptional nation on earth following the heavily, socialized econmic model of Europe.
There is no need for a mentalist with supernatural powers to identify the causes of the great political divide that increase our chances to violence. Both parties have forced out the centrists. They were the people who brokered every significant political agreement in history. Both parties now demand purity to its beliefs as a ticket for admittance. Compromisers has become a four letter word. When it's both COMPROMISE and NEGOTIATION that REPRESENT THE "BLOOD AND GUTS" of the POLITICAL PROCESS OUR FOUNDERS ERECTED.
Open your eyes Mr. Andersen. The basic causes of the current political dysfunction your distressed with, and I am as well, are more than clear. Conservatives want far less costly and less powerful government with the aim to spur investment to produce a more vigorous economy. All while Democrats want ever more expensive, more generous and dictatorial government even though the non stop expansion of government to record levels over the past 75 years has resulted in two most depressing macro outcomes. MORE POOR PEOPLE, and EVEN RICHER RICH PEOPLE. It is an outcome no one can dispute. Even, Barack Obama with all his endless, promising rhetoric magnified econmic inequality faster than any president in history.
What's your solution Mr. Andersen? Oh, just a little more generous government, with more power, and more ENTITLEMENTS for frosting on the melting cake. I will fight that proven, failed outcome until every drop of my blood has leaked out in the street. That idea simply doesn’t work.
