LETTER: Evaluate politicians by policy, not personality

Published on December 11, 2017 4:34PM


Stop it. Name calling Trump isn’t going to bring him down. Accusing him of being a racist isn’t going bring him down. This Robert Mueller “investigation into collusion with Russia” isn’t going to bring him down. The “leaked” Access Hollywood tape didn’t bring him down. Trump won because our politicians failed us.

Republicans have lacked the spine for generations to unify with a cohesive agenda out of fear of their public image. Democrats don’t care about anyone. They only see fit to tell you what is wrong in the world and who to blame for it.

Do not continue more of this childish tabloid BS. If you don’t like Trump, disagree with his policies, but attacking his character doesn’t work and weakens your position. He obviously thrives on that and you only help him by driving his supporters further away from you and closer to him.

No matter what side of the political spectrum you are on, hold all your politicians accountable for the jobs they do or more “Trumps” will crop up in the future.
