Letter to the Editor: Neither candidate is evil
It's never too late! Or is it already too late in the day to see the light of reason? This is not a negative election as in choosing between the lesser of evils. Neither candidate is evil. (Hitler was evil - and very sincere about it.) Each candidate is motivated by a different vision for our country.
Are you hearing and discerning the difference? I agree with my baby boomer son's distinction: we must choose between a government for and by business or a government for and by the people.
Please read the 52-word preface to our Constitution which begins, "We the People" and includes the purpose "to insure domestic tranquility, promote general welfare and secure blessings of liberty." Anything that sounds like corporations and CEOs? Anything that encourages political party loyalty?
Regardless of your definition of a Christian or an atheist, consider the wisdom of Rousseau's opinion: "Those who would treat politics and morality apart will never understand that one or the other." And read Lincoln's closing promise in his Gettysburg address, "That this government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish."
Let your vote represent your examined ideals and faith in the direction we will go as Americans.
Elizabeth Truesdale, Strasburg
