Mid­dle class de­cided ‘Enough is enough’

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor: Friends and fam­ily should stop the BS.

Hil­lary sup­port­ers should come off the ledge and stop pre­dict­ing Ar­maged­don.

Trump sup­port­ers should stop pat­ting them­selves on their backs be­fore they break their arms.

This election was never about Trump or Clin­ton — just look at the fa­vor­a­bil­ity/ un­fa­vor­a­bil­ity polls — it was about mid­dle-class, work­ing Amer­i­cans fi­nally say­ing, “Enough is enough.“

And these Amer­i­cans are white, black, Latino, male and fe­male.

This is a state­ment to both ma­jor po­lit­i­cal par­ties that it is time to wake up and pay at­ten­tion to the silent ma­jor­ity who ob­vi­ously are no longer silent. This is a mes­sage to all Amer­i­cans to stop be­ing a vic­tim of the me­dia’s quest to di­vide us, whether it’s racial, eco­nomic, gender-based, re­li­gious be­liefs or sex­ual pref­er­ence. Be­lieve your heart be­cause we are more alike than they would lead you to be­lieve.

It is time to move on with our only true de­nom­i­na­tor: We are all Amer­i­cans.

Stop be­ing di­vided by a news head­line, a poll or some­one else’s be­lief. Look around dur­ing your daily rou­tine and take no­tice that life re­ally isn’t so bad and that you can make a dif­fer­ence. You have turned the Wash­ing­ton po­lit­i­cal ma­chine on its head.

Spe­cial-in­ter­est groups are now not so spe­cial.

And very loudly, you pro­nounced all lives mat­ter.

God bless our great coun­try. Joe Puma Sauger­ties
