In response to “Divided nation”: In his letter, Dave Silva wrongly claimed that in our divided nation, “one side wants jobs, can pay fair taxes, have a good health plan, be law-abiding citizens, and have a happy retirement. The other side wants things for free, health care, education, and in some cases money to live without a job.” This false Fox News meme is an insult to everyone. Our nation is divided because ignorant and uneducated people believe the stuff that propaganda outlets, like Fox, perpetuate. Everyone wants jobs, fair taxes, a good health plan, to be law-abiding and to have a happy retirement. To suggest otherwise is just plain ignorant. The country is divided because 46 percent of this country is too blind to see that the pompous leader they elected took the job to personally enrich himself and his family. Under his leadership, the rich will get richer, and the middle and lower classes will be left in the dust. We have been down this road before and the majority of us will not sit quietly while he destroys what’s left of our democracy. I’m sorry you’re too blind to see that.
