Settling

November 11, 2012
dsp Williamsport Sun-Gazette
By your own words, "The result is gridlock. For four more years. The Senate remains majority Democratic but the House is majority Republican," you have defined the overriding cause of most of the issues facing the American people today. Statements such as these and others that blatantly suggest that our president cannot be effective because the other party will refuse to "give in to his policies" are examples of the narrow-minded thought processes that have us where we are today. We are certainly divided between two different ways of life, between those who accept such narrow minded, bullish, petty behaviors from our leadership and make it our mantra for placing blame and our excuse for sitting back and expecting the status quo to maintain our "American way" of life and our freedoms; and those who still believe that their vote counts for something, that "skin-tight" majorities in the most populous portions of the country only dictate the outcomes of elections if we, "the large majority," fail to execute our civic duty. This election should be a wake up call – the power of the vote should not be underestimated. If we truly want change for the betterment of America, we all must use our vote to let the members of congress know that gridlock will not and can not be accepted. If we do nothing about the gridlock you so proudly brag of, this is settling. Jackie Whiteman Williamsport Submitted by Virtual Newsroom
