Wayne Glenn: Political limbo

April 2, 2013 

Political limbo

After viewing the performances of the Democrats and the Republicans in the state legislature and in Congress and in the governor’s mansion and the White House, I am convinced that those governing us care more about politics than people.

It seems to me we are being governed from the edges. Liberals are pressing homosexual marriage. Conservatives are doing everything they can to protect the rich. Conservatives care about protecting gun rights at all costs. Liberals want to limit free speech and freedom of religion. Conservatives seemingly want to cast aside the poor.

And we the people are caught in the middle and nothing gets done.
