Continuing the Crook County News Since 1884

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I’m finding it harder and harder to understand what has happened to the politics in this country and our county especially. I understand being passionate for a candidate or a cause but I don’t understand the hate for the opposing views that seems to come with it these days.

I’ve never seen anyone win an argument by hating the other person the most.

I understand the system is set up as Republicans versus Democrats. The “us versus them”, as they say. So, we became a state full of Republicans because we decided that was the closest part to our core values and beliefs.
