Partisan baloney ailing politics in the United States

Posted 1 October 2019 at 8:35 am


There is way too much partisan baloney in the United States. But I have no intention of “going off” and writing a book at this time.

Depending on the Democratic nominee, I might vote for a Republican in 2020. But it won’t be someone who differs from Richard Nixon principally in that he isn’t smart enough to resign.

However, should Mark Sanford or William Weld be the Republican nominee, I may very well vote Republican in 2020.

It would take someone as level-headed as Senator Amy Klobuchar to get me to check the box on Row B. Of course, if the current occupant of the White House is re-nominated, my guess is that it will practically guarantee a Democratic victory in 2020.

I continue to believe that impeachment and conviction lets the citizens of this Republic off the hook. He and his entourage deserve it, but it is time to admit we made a mistake in 2016.

Sincerely yours,

Gary F. Kent
