Politics consumed by hatred

Dear editor:

I agree that politics at all levels is a mess, but I disagree about the wall.

I believe the wall is an investment. If it stops one 911-type terrorist from entering our country, the lives saved would be worth the cost, not to mention physical damage and possible nuclear contamination. Drones and electronics can be hacked. Damage to the wall would be perceived immediately and acted upon quickly by border patrol.

I have been on this earth well over half a century and I have never seen politics consumed by so much hatred. When a political party lost an election in the past, they accepted the loss and began working on the next election, but not today. The Democrats keep coming up with something to try to get rid of Trump. It was racism yesterday. Today, it is Ukraine. Who knows what it will be tomorrow.

No one is above the law, whether Republican, Democrat or any other individual. This does not seem to be the case today, however. The Democrats keep digging for something to stick to Trump while at the same time, there are a number of questionable things the previous administration did that Nadler and his Judiciary Committee will not touch with a ten-foot pole.

I complement Carolyn Hudson on her letter in the Sept. 19 edition. The letter is one of the best that I have ever read. I am saving a copy of it for my great-grandkids as a history lesson for them when they get older.
