The public is frustrated

Pella — To the editor,

The public is frustrated.  I understand that.  People are losing their jobs and their dreams, Congress can’t get its act together and the Obama administration is stuck on the only two policy settings it knows – “ineffective” and “senseless.”  But there are better ways of dealing with frustration than camping in a city park with winter coming, banging on a drum and answering every question with a peeved chant of “We – are – the ninety-nine percent!”  That only means you’re cold and ignorant.

America can return to a better path, and it starts by attending your Republican precinct caucus on January 3.  Local media – such as this newspaper – will have the details of time and place as the date approaches.  You’ll hear speakers advocating for the various Republican candidates for president, you’ll be able to vote for your favored candidate, and you and your neighbors will discuss and vote on the ideas you believe should guide our government.  Caucus night is your freedom of speech and freedom of assembly in action.  Join us!

Freedom is precious; too precious to be ignored because it’s easier to complain.  True, Obama and the Democrats have caused grievous harm to the United States in last three years, stealing our prosperity, shutting down our jobs, drowning us in debt, and setting us against each other with their nasty rhetoric.  But it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.  Let the Republican precinct caucuses illuminate the way to a more hopeful future.  I hope to see you there.
