Letters to the Editor: Single-party rule
April 8, 2021
The Countywide & Sun:
I read and reread the editorial about HB 1078 trying to understand whether the writer thought it was a good idea or a bad idea.
Finally I realized that the writer thought it didn't make any difference whether it was a good idea or a bad idea because it was proposed by Republicans who control both the legislature and the governorship. He seemed to think the public should not care since passage was certain regardless of whether it was good or bad.
Reminded me of my grandfather's approach to voting. He thought it was important that one party rule was avoided in order to have both negotiations and checks and balances.
