Letter to the Editor: A negative state


Watching the State of the Union address by President Trump was an eye opener regarding the state of society. No matter what your political belief, it would seem that you would want your country to prosper. I didn’t care for President Obama’s socialistic outlook, but I did not want him to fail. His failure would have been the failure of our country.

As I watched the Democrats in the audience that night I was astounded by the looks of disgust and hatred even when the positive outcomes were mentioned. When he spoke about the lowest Black and Hispanic unemployment in history they did not applaud and continued the hateful stare. During the continued mentions of success in our country this continued. Is the hatred of one man so great that these people want our country to fail so that they can feel vindicated?

One cannot help but reflect on our city governments in the same way. Watching the cities of Jefferson County operate I have a good feeling about the planned outcomes. Yes, members may disagree ideologically, but most city council members want success no mater who has been elected. Hopefully this feeling will eventually translate into a successful national government as well. Our country cannot thrive the way it should with this continued emotional division.

William F Hineser,
