Letter: Conservatives, suggest solutions

February 1, 2014 

After reading Samuel Ethridge’s letter (Jan. 30) wherein he states that “Obama has driven our nation into this mess,” I feel compelled to reply. What has driven this nation to its present state is: unfunded, trillion-dollar military adventurism; corporate welfare; and a shrinking middle class being increasingly disenfranchised by an electoral system utterly corrupted by corporate money.

It’s time conservatives came up with better solutions to these intractable problems than shutting down the government and blaming everything on the Democrats.
