Regardless of political leanings, we should be fed up with the way both parties explain their “facts.”

If you read/hear phrases such as “my trusted source says” or “speaking on condition of anonymity,” beware of the garbage that follows.

Also, give no credence to “fake news,” “alternative facts,” “fuzzy math” and a host of others used by both parties. And give no credence to whatever is then described as the “truth.” Someone is lying.

When the opposing party has a rebuttal for a speech yet to be given, and they are anti-everything said, something is wrong. Democrats are not always wrong and Republicans are not always right. Have we become so polarized by our political party that we no longer think for ourselves? Does the D or R mean that we have dumbed down to the point that we are being blindly led around and told what to eat, drink, think and say by our “worthy” party leaders?

In our heart, each of us knows what is right, though it may be different for each of us. We also know how to react when our leaders enact a viewpoint different from ours.

My opinions are based first on the Bible and second on the Constitution. As an American I believe in the reason and way this great country was founded and further believe in the laws our forefathers penned for their new country. You may not believe as I do. That is your right, but that right does not entitle either of us to force our opinions on each other using violence or any other means that infringe on our constitutional rights.

Courts should interpret, not make laws. I pray we relearn and accept the purpose of the three branches of government and again become the United States of America.
