Cut The Bad Talk

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 28, 2018

IN THE HEAT OF THE SUMMER THERE IS ENTIRELY TOO MUCH HEATED POLITICAL LANGUAGE. IS ANY OF THIS PRODUCING POLICY RESULTS, OR IS IT JUST HARDENING HEARTS? WHATEVER HAPPENED TO “A SOFT ANSWER TURNS AWAY WRATH”?

ALL OF THIS PUBLIC BICKERING IS NOT HELPING ADVANCE ANY CAUSE. THE ISSUES FAVOR REPUBLICANS AND CONSERVATIVES, BUT YOU WOULDN’T KNOW IT GIVEN THE VILE RHETORIC.

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS SHOULD GET BACK TO THE ISSUES. THE PRESIDENT ONCE APPEALED TO BLACK VOTERS ON EDUCATION, SAYING DURING THE CAMPAIGN THEY HAVE MOSTLY VOTED FOR DEMOCRATS FOR DECADES AND THAT PARTY HAS DONE NOTHING FOR THEM, SO WHY NOT TRY SOMETHING ELSE, MEANING REPUBLICANS?

AS I WROTE IN A PREVIOUS BOOK, WE KNOW WHAT WORKS – ECONOMICALLY, EDUCATIONALLY AND IN FOREIGN POLICY. WE DON’T LIVE IN THE PAST BUT WE CAN LOOK TO IT FOR INSTRUCTION. IT’S BETTER TO WIN ON AN ISSUE THAN IT IS TO DENOUNCE YOUR POLITICAL OPPONENT, BECAUSE ROUGH LANGUAGE CONVINCES NO ONE.

COULD WE PLEASE HAVE A TIME-OUT FROM CONDEMNING EACH OTHER AND CONCENTRATE ON WHAT PROMOTES THE GENERAL WELFARE? ALL OF US WILL BE BETTER-OFF FOR IT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
