I have never met Mr. Barnes (Letters, Aug. 28) in person, but I am sure we must at least have a few things in common – perhaps even our basic religious beliefs. Having said that, I must say I was surprised by the content of his letter. In it he claimed that the “Democratic majority doesn’t care what the majority of the voting public feels … .”
What surprises me about that sentence is his use of the word majority. You see, it was in fact the majority of the voting public that put the Democrats there. It is the majority of the voting public that decided they have had enough of the status quo and are ready for change. That is what the majority voted for: change.
For the record I am neither Democrat nor Republican, but rather an independent. I vote my conscience rather than down party lines, and this time I also voted for change.
What I would truly like to see is for the entire public to respect what the majority has voted for and let these people do the job that they have been elected to do.
