A Step Back From The Cliff
A lot of Americans are upset about the passage of the Healthcare Reform Bill. Depending on what poll you read, somewhere between 30 and 50% of the countryâ€™s citizens donâ€™t approve of these changes.
Rumors about what is and is not in the Bill are flying around like flies at a picnic, and rumors werenâ€™t the only things flying today. Bricks were thrown through the office windows of some members of congress who voted for the Bill, and one Congressmanâ€™s brother, whose house was mistaken for the residence of the Congressman, had his gas line cut.
This is not how Americans settle our differences: It is how third world countries and dictators settle theirs. We need to take a step back and take a deep breath. Thereâ€™s an election coming up in 8 months, and itâ€™s at the ballot box that Americans should express their frustration and disapproval.
This behavior is beneath us and weakens our moral authority. .
