Letters to the Editor

What about simple decency in politics?

There was a time when politics in America was primarily a choice between Democrat and Republican, liberal and conservative. President Donald Trump’s “sh-thole” remark injects an additional element into the political arena: decency versus indecency.

I don’t understand how any person who values decency could support any politician whose personal values permit him to speak so disparagingly about other human beings or nations. Trump’s morally and racially repugnant remark calls each of us to examine our personal value systems. I’d like to make a case for decency being more important than politics
