Elected officials should appeal to greater good
The Democratic party accuses Republicans of creating rifts, schisms in the political arena. But if progressives are honest (rarely), they have created the biggest schism evidenced by Jim Galloway’s column “Will Trump appeal to black voters” News, May 29. No elected official should at any time “appeal” to blacks, whites, Mexicans, women, LGBT, Christians, etc. They should appeal to the greater good for all, respecting the individual. The AJC and the Dems love to measure each possible splinter group and make appeals to each of them suggesting the Republicans are not “inclusive.” Inclusive means we’re all voters who want an effective, honest, fiscally sound government that doesn’t have its hand in my pocket that protects us all — that’s its first and primary task.
