Reader Opinion: A new trump

It is common to read and hear how unfortunate it is that our nation is divided.

Perhaps, though, this is just where we need to be. As like two sawyers, faced in opposing positions, both pulling and pushing back and forth in earnest effort to cut the better timber.

Both sides have perspectives with merit. We may benefit by those offsetting outlooks that tend to lend buttressing stability to an otherwise awkward imbalance.

If we graph our public perspective, the image has most people within a broader middle range with fewer and then fewest as the distance extends toward the end extremes.

And it is to our own better interests that these streams remain dynamic in motion, fresh and flowing rather than static, stale and stagnant.

Both political sides have had their wheels lift from the tracks over the years with the outcomes having been the building of better wheels, better tracks and designing a better grade to travel better and further.

In the future, burgeoning populations, recognition of economic and other impeding disparities as well as wider voting parities will force leaders and legislatures to recognize that more reasonable needs for a greater number should trump less reasonable wants for a few and to implement public policies, programs and projects accordingly.

We need not despair when we have a stretching back and forth between the poles-it is these exorcising movements that will keep us politically fit and healthy in the long term.
