Incivility Has Got to Go

Two weeks ago an endorsement Letter to the Editor ran on this Opinion Page, titled "Republican's Are Animals".

Satire in the given political climate of our country, though supported by our 1st Amendment rights, can be easily misunderstood or worse yet, believed by the public.

Congressman Jason Lewis has renounced such discourse and calls upon the public to do the same, no matter what your political affiliation is. Inflaming the public conversation with such dialogue shuts down the necessary communication to achieve workable solutions for our country.

The responsibilities of leadership require that we set and maintain standards of civil discourse for ourselves, supporters, as well as the public.

Congressman Lewis encourages this higher road of action in the public square.

This is a paid endorsement letter to the editor.
