Letter: Increased centralization or limited government?



I appreciate the fervor and analysis of Mike Senuta (Aug. 30), Derek Gryna and Douglas Johnson (both Sept 6). Most citizens seem detached from caring a whit about our representation or current issues. But, like trying to agree on the prettiest picture in the museum, I don’t see great agreement on current representation, media bias or what constitutes an “extreme candidate.”

The aghast expressed by Rep. (Victoria) Spartz exemplifies roughly half the country that sees great machinations by the DOJ and FBI on behalf pursuing Donald Trump, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone, while few rocks seem to get turned over regarding Hunter Biden, James Comey or Hillary Clinton. A standard of justice that is one-sided is indeed “grossly irresponsible.”

My similar turn in television torture months ago, watching Fox, CNN and MSNBC netted similar frustration with an opposite result. I perceived two channels constantly looking for an angle to lambast Trump, while the third countered with why he was unjustly pursued – with, indeed, little genuine “news” except 6 to 7 p.m. – sometimes.

The root theme: Are we to continue increased centralization of government control because we believe that path is best, or are we to return to freedom with limited government – as founded?
