“[An] unrelenting partisan mindset is irreconcilable with my philosophy of governance and my experience [; it is] a rejectionist orthodoxy and rigid opposition to the actions and proposals of the other party." Well said, Senator Lugar. Too bad the majority of Indiana Republicans don’t see it that way. But we don’t have to join them. Or have we reached the point where we are willing to sacrifice the good or our country so we can spite the other side? Why then have we resigned to electing people who promise to cut off our nose to spite our face? Voting for such folks does not assert our individualism; it’s just plain old spite. Rugged individuals have built this land and it is high time for them to stand up to the unchecked political hatred that has taken hold of our country.
