In the past I have posted letters to the editor or guest columns that the Orlando Sentinel has been kind enough to publish- on to this blog. I was so busy last fall I never got around to posting this one that I wrote right before the election. Then, when Romney lost I became ambivalent about the whole thing. In the column (published as a "My Word"column in which everyday folk get to yammer on) I was implying Romney would be the better choice because I felt he'd be better at compromising with the Democrats., but I was not obvious about that opinion. I think that's why they published it, subtle is always better in the mainstream world. Make no mistake, I believe both parties have lost so many moderates that they can no longer govern, but I did think Romney had a better chance of "mending" things than Obama.
Anyway, here is the letter... I feel the overall point is still vital; the parties stranglehold on power needs to stop.
