Since the country is divided, nearly down the middle, between liberal and conservative ideologies, I am bemused when I read the Herald opeed page every day and find that there are substantially more liberal remarks than conservative.
So much space has been dedicated to Donald Trump and how we will “never be the same” he is elected.
We survived Jimmy Carter’s overall incompetence, we survived George W. Bush dragging us into a destabilizing middle east war, we survived (so far) Obama’s racial divide, feckless foreign policy, war on police and gun ownership, and stagnant economy.
What makes any rational person think we won’t survive a successful businessman’s approach to running the business of government —especially a government fraught with inefficiencies carrying a trillion of debt?
Most puzzling is how so many who write opinion articles are oblivious to the fact that they are merely filtering their perspective through the lens of their own ideological subjectivity and then ascribing that perspective as one representing the American people.
Newsflash, folks: The liberal perspective belongs to one out of two Americans.
The other half of America is diametrically opposed to almost every political position that is advanced in the liberal agenda.
