To the editor:
Well, the election is over — finally. Congratulations to the winners, but we have a word or two for you.
All we know about you is what you think about your opponent. We know nothing about you. What are your plans other than winning? This has been the most negative campaign season we have ever witnessed and we are glad it’s over. But you must know this: We, Americans, are tired of the deadlock in Washington. We don’t care what side of the aisle you sit on, cooperate with the other side and stop the partisan politics and vote for the issue, not just the party line. It is time to solve our problems. You represent us, not the special interests, and if you don’t vote our will, you will be forced home in a couple of years.
If you don’t like what President Obama has brought forth, don’t kill it and give us nothing in return. The party of “no” is not the answer. It is the party of “Well, no, but how about this,” that wins in the end.
Work together to solve the problems, not blame others.
And if you do nothing to help, you are part of the problem. Your time there will be short. Don’t sell your house in Kansas. It is time for “we the people” to take our government away from special interests and if you minimize them, we will have a more efficient and effective government. Then you will represent the will of the people. Do it now!
You have been elected. We are counting on you!
