With the political campaigns for the general election gaining steam daily there is a significant increase in the harshness of the dialog. I believe that it is a fair statement to say that the coming election is going to be one of the harshest and divisive that has occurred in many years, because the divide between the political parties is increasing rapidly.
The claims from the liberal left in America appear to me to becoming more strident, and the voices from the right are fighting among themselves to the point of self-imploding. Permit me to suggest that this is a time that we all are desperately seeking clear voices to separate the misinformation from the objective points of view.
It is your Commander’s opinion that the few clear voices must seek a wider audience or we will certainly fall to the grasp of the liberal left and should that to happen it will change the country we love forever. Some of those clear voices are Peggy Noonan, Charles Krauthammer, and Prof. Walter E. Williams. Please take a look at Noonan’s recent piece from The Wall Street Journal titled “The Divider vs. the Thinker”:
I cannot remember a time in our recent history when we need a true patriot to lead out country back to the principals outlined in the Declaration of Independence that were supported by the sound visions of our Founding Fathers. Real leadership does not lead by fear and division, but with a clearly stated idea and inspiration that unifies toward a common goal.
