Letter to the Editor: Radicals need to step aside


Propaganda is defined as the spreading of ideas, information or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution cause or a person. Political pundits from both sides of the political spectrum engage in it to a certain degree. That's what politics is all about. However those on the fringes, right or left, are much more proficient at it then their counterparts in the middle as evidenced by Dan Flathers' latest critique of the Obama administration (letter to the editor on Sept. 27).

If one has even a modicum of objectivity, he or she will find that the allegations alleged by Flathers are exaggerated to the point of absurdity. It is rhetoric like this from both sides that has brought the legislative process to a screeching halt to the detriment of working class Americans who bear an inordinate amount of pain resulting from the recent economic downturn. Enough already!

It's time for radicals on both sides to put away their signs, tone down their inflammatory rhetoric, step aside and let the moderates on both sides negotiate a bi-partisan agreement that will put the country back on track to economic recovery. We owe the hard-working middle class Americans no less.
