Reader Opinion: Partisan politics is toxic

Maxine Waters in Minnesota was throwing gasoline on a racial fire in Brooklyn Center.


Not everyone is gonna agree on everything. But when the partisan politics become so toxic that no one agrees on anything, something has to change.

Take for instance the appearance of Maxine Waters in Minnesota to throw her can of gasoline on the racial fire going on in Brooklyn Center. Most people would agree there was really no need for her to be here. She is a congressperson from California! The Republicans wanted to punish her in some way since her history shows she does nothing but spew hatred and violence. Every Democrat from this state voted no to any sort of punishment. Since obviously the left is always going to protect their own.

The total partisan political environment is destroying the country! It has to stop!

We have seen some examples of leadership, both for the better and for the worse, such that we can “do-the-math” and arrive at sums that can be better for the most.
Too many seem willing to turn it all over to authoritarian leadership, no matter how devoid of any redeeming qualities, to allow self-indulgence and the dark gods of violence.
