We Hold These Truths
The old Confederate base names and statues did not bother anyone until a small group trying to show how virtuous they were managed to make these things a problem. The divisiveness created by our President does not help. I am against the specific name changes and statue removal because society can only absorb a limited amount of change at any one given time. Instead of focusing on names, statues etc. we should be focusing on legal reform - Bernie Sanders had the idea of legalizing consumption of Marijuana, for example, Police reform, dissolution of the police unions (to be replaced by some kind of State/Federal body) and importantly a change in the way the school system operates to include more time on Civic duty and more time on diminishing a sort of institutionalized aggression that has made its way into our country. Let's change the important stuff and not the fluff!
