Letter to the editor | Positive spin on rhetoric

In this day of very divisive political rhetoric, the need to be positive and present relevant options to current problems has been lost.

Recent television commercials state that an individual numerous times voted no on a plan or program, focused only on an opponents’ alleged beliefs or concepts, and railed about a long-established government agency and regulations rather than offering creative and innovative solutions to the alleged concerns.

Such actions seem counterproductive to our national progress.

A long-held public relations axiom states that it is very easy to be negative; you just say no. It is much easier to do than to take the higher road and offer realistic solutions, which have the potential to move the deliberative process and our country forward.
