Do Your Part


Democrats of Hemet-San Jacinto

In the article wrote for last week’s paper I stated “Let’s hope the election results reflect the “will of the people”. I believe this happened at the presidential level. The electoral votes reflect the popular votes across the country. In the last presidential election of 2016 this did not happen. The people chose Hillary Clinton but the electoral college went for Trump. The results in the Senate are still unknown but as of today Republicans are leading 50 to 48 while the popular vote totals for the Senate is still being tallied, it appears that Democratic votes will exceed Republican votes by about five percent.

While I have no numbers to back up this claim, I believe the will of the people is that politicians of both parties cooperate, compromise and make progress in moving our nation forward. It has been far too long that politicians have taken a ‘my way or the highway’ attitude. It has been far too long that the Senate has failed to even bring house bills up for a discussion, amendments, and a vote. There is no room for compromise on a few issues like climate change and discrimination but on most other issues, compromises can and should be made by both sides, issues like combating Covid-19 and resurrecting a failing economy. Politicians need to work together.

Working together can also be done at the individual level. If personal relations with friends or family have become strained over the past few years due to political differences, it is time to come together, agree to disagree, and treat all others with dignity and compassion. Doing so will be good for your family, your neighborhood and our country. Do your part in rebuilding America.
