Why can’t we listen to each other?

To the editor:

After the recent Presidential Rally at the Target Center, I just can’t keep quite any longer. I understand why President Trump was elected. People wanted change. I’m from Minnesota. I wanted to make a statement. I voted for Mr. Ventura. We all know how that turned out. I watched in disbelief as OUR PRESIDENT, went on a name calling and hate-filled message for 1 hour and 20 minutes out of his hour and 45 minute speech.

You have leaders of one party saying they want free health care, free college. Nothing in life is free. The other side is saying never compromise. Everyone has to compromise every day of their lives. The majority of our elected officials have common sense. I don’t care what party you belong to, Independent, Republican or Democrat. If they have policies you believe in, stick with them. Just quit trying to tell me this man is a good person. He says his opponents are liars, cheats, Idiots, morons, and crooked. In Minnesota we say, “It Takes One to know One.”

I had a coach in school that always had a phrase he would say when the players would do something incorrectly, he would yell, “PEOPLE, THAT’S NOT RIGHT.” Well people, this is not right. Let’s start listening to each other.

I was brought up to respect my elders, work hard, pay my bills, carry my own weight, and help those less fortunate. The Good Book I read says “GOD is LOVE” not God is HATE! It also says, once in a while you should examine one’s self. It’s time we all took a breath. Take a moment to figure out how to get our point across without belittling each other.

I don’t have a Facebook account so if you want to tear me down. You’ll have to do it the old fashion way and send me a letter.
