Truth and political currency

April 3, 2019
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

To the editor:

We are constantly subjected to the promises and proclamations of our politicians. We judge them upon what they say, whether it be comments or promises. Their words are the currency accepted. Politicians spend this "currency" with hopes of getting a position in which they can acquire even more acceptance of their currency.

The recent attack upon the Presidency of Donald Trump stands as a beacon of what not to do in politics. The depth of damage to the Democratic Party will resonate through the 2020 election. If common sense emerges and prevails within that Party this country will see a return to reality: a return to worthwhile purpose which the Democratic Party has shown in the past. The politics of drama, the politics of outright lies may have seen their last days. But that will occur only if the media decides to report the truth. For the media to once again hold some measure of respect among the citizens of this country they will need a rebirth; a sense of real purpose to provide a useful venue for information that carries the mantel of value.

Politics is an observational activity and what we have observed these past three years was not a pretty sight.
