An easy response to the April 27 letter to the editor (“Democrats’ priorities just pandering for votes”) from a Camano Island gentleman would be the following: The only way a conservative gets a vote is by taking away someone’s constitutional rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. When are they going to wake up? Unregulated capitalism isn’t a fair way to distribute wealth to people. Ted Cruz is a complete fraud. Shame on the Republican Party.
As good as this response makes me feel, I know that it is as simplistic as that which it opposes. Instead let me compliment the gentleman for continuing to read this newspaper, which is a medium offering subscribers various rational opinions as well as verifiable facts. Let me compliment him for his choice of residence. Camano Island is a lovely location; one having air, land and water worthy of protection. Let me compliment for his brevity. He is better at it than I am.
