Letter: Enemies list

January 16, 2014 

This is in response to Joseph Dewey’s “Enemies Top 10 List” on Dec. 31, 2013 — the same can be said for the Top 10 on the Republicans’ enemies list. 1. President Barack Obama 2. Nancy Pelosi 3. The Liberal News Media... etc. etc.

How about we start off 2014 with trying to find some common ground? We all love our children. We all love this country and want to see the unemployment and deficit reduced; we just have different opinions on how it should get done. Let’s try working together and finding issues we can agree on and stop trying to knock each other down or the things we love — our children and country will surely suffer.

If we keep up this hatred of our fellow Americans just because they are Democrats or Republicans, the “Enemies of the United States” win. I think we can all agree that what they want is to destroy our happiness and take away our wealth. I know change is hard, but I think it would benefit all of us if we tried to hold our tongue and follow our mother’s advice: “If you can’t say something nice — don’t say anything at all.”
