  • Letter: If you don't like it, there is a procedure to change it - vote

  • As I read the opinions of persons stating that it is one party's failure or another, I am reminded of what a person told me a long time ago.

  • To the editor:
    As I read the opinions of persons stating that it is one party's failure or another, I am reminded of what a person told me a long time ago.
    When you vote you have stated your opinion, if you do not vote then live with the knowledge that your absence of an opinion means you are letting other persons' opinions govern your life. Those persons who argue one way or another should ensure that their opinion has sufficient strength behind it, i.e., winning the vote.
    If you do not like the outcome, then ensure that persons who have like-minded opinions voted also.
    There is a process for repealing a law, follow it, but do not hold persons hostage because the law was approved by vote and passed the Supreme Court challenge.
    There is a process, if you lose then accept the law and work against it by getting the votes not making the populace suffer because you do not get your way.
    It is sickening to see this country in such disarray caused by people's selfishness, and actions similar to that of a spoiled child.
    I wish my grandmother would get her wooden hairbrush out and let them have it, oops, can not do that, it would be considered child abuse. I guess I was an abused child.
