Letter: Sad to see our nation so divided

The well-written letter “Please stop the hatred that divides our nation” on Feb. 26 prompted me to muse: How would a legislator vote on a proposed “bill” if she/he did not know which party sponsored it?

It seems that those on the right will call you a “socialist” if you disagree with them, while those on the left will call you a “racist” if you disagree with them.

I think of those haunting words of President Lincoln: “Now we are engaged in a great civil war.” How sad!
