Letter to the editor: Politicians’ oath is to Constitution

Will we make it to 2021?

OK … many people support President Trump, but this has now moved in a very scary direction. I beg of everyone to reject the idea that citizens — especially elected citizens — should leave the country if they don’t agree with things our country/current leadership does.

We are trying to create a more perfect union. We will disagree. Both sides have valid points. Both sides take it too far. That is just how politics works.

Take time to read the oath that everyone representing us and defending/protecting us takes. The oath is not to the country, rather it is to the Constitution. It may just be a piece of paper, but the words on it have made us who we are today.

Don’t be fooled into thinking there are easy answers to the issues we face. Facing them united should be the goal.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
