Send a message to both political parties

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionBravo to Jim Schlembach for his well-written and articulate Jan. 22 letter. He correctly notes that the criticism of the POTUS and other GOP leaders is excessive. He’s also spot-on when he states that leaders solicit donations from the ultra-wealthy to win votes, manipulate others and broadcast propaganda and lies.However, Mr. Schlembach’s assessment is incomplete: the villain he’s describing doesn’t sit only on one side of the political aisle. While the GOP is singled out in his letter, an identical letter could have been written to describe the Democrats in office. Both parties can be equally described as the “party of greed, opportunism and propaganda.”Unquestionably, the majority of U.S. voters are disgusted by the excessive egos, unapologetic greed, hostility and deplorable behavior on display in Washington, D.C., (and broadcast with bias by the media). Open debate and the art of compromise has devolved into an environment where the biggest ego, the loudest voice, the best sound bite or the most clever Twitter hashtag wins the day. Democrats and Republicans are more interested in scoring political points than solving our nation’s problems. The recent federal government shutdown provides perfect evidence.Mr. Schlembach’s assessment again falls short when he states that the 2018 midterm elections will be an opportunity to send the GOP a message on what it has become. In truth, it should be an opportunity for us all to send a message to both parties that we aren’t pleased with what Washington has become.John McGuinnessGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more
