VOP letter misguided

A letter-writer on Aug. 20 seems to think that only Republicans are “clear-thinking, decent Americans.”

This is exactly what is wrong with our country right now. Denigrating, insulting and distorting those with different views has become commonplace.

When some Democrats voted for Ronald Reagan, as he points out, it was because Reagan communicated without insulting and compromised instead of polarizing. Attacking the media as “corrupt” only fans the flames of discord, and threatens to place the hard-working profession of journalism in the same class as politicians.

I fear that it is not Democrats who have lost their way, but the writer and those who blindly support an abusive, egocentric president.
