Can’t we all get along? Where is your highest loyalty? Is it your nation, or country, your government, your business, your spouse and family, your god or your religion, or your ethnic familiarity?
We all have preferences, naturally our family would be high on that list. But when it comes to politics are you a Democrat, Republican an independent or something else?
Political competitiveness is harmful to our nation’s future. I believe party politics are a primary cause of disagreement, condemnation or a lack of harmony among our people.
An example is the relationship between the Democrats and the hate for President Donald J. Trump. The leadership of the Democratic party has become obsessed with desire for political power. They refuse to accept or agree with any suggestion or idea the president proposes. They fear voters will support the president and that would diminish or impair there chance of regaining the presidency. I don’t believe this destructive attitude is what the voters want or expect from their leadership.
Can we the people correct this political disorder? I believe the problem is in the voter registration process. It asks us to designate the party of our choice. It suggests we obligate our vote to support a party doctrine and idealism. I believe this unearned party loyalty causes conflict among our citizens.
Voter registration is a important process for patriotic citizens to maintain integrity and responsibility for our government.
In order to correct this disorder with our voter registration system. We should eliminate all party affiliation in the voter registration process.
So what can you do to help make the changes and bring civility to our voting system. You can re-register to vote and decline to state a party preference or you can just mark no party preference on the form. Richard Baltzley
