Which party backs division?

For those of you who are upset about the tone of this year’s campaign, I would like you to think back to 2008. Which side was it that blamed all of the country’s problems on the previous president? Which side was it that preached divisiveness, “poor” against “rich,” workers against corporations, welfare recipients against taxpayers, even women against men? By contrast, you may also remember that the soft-spoken John McCain defended his opponent against a charge he felt was inappropriate. This campaign by the current administration to divide the country has continued for four years. I remember the pre-WWII years when several repressive governments used just those same tactics. A quick look at history will show you that dictators have always come into power in this way. Cleona V. Duncan, Newcastle
