Some of you might know that the line above is from the Prayer of St Francis, and others may never have heard of it before, but the prayer was very much on my mind a few nights ago. And it isn’t often you think of prayers during Sunday Night Football (especially when your team isn’t playing), but as I was switching between the Packers-Saints and ‘Madam Secretary’ (good show!), I kept seeing a cardboard cutout of Art Robinson pop up on my screen. It seems that Peter DeFazio isn’t interested in making a positive case to vote for him, but just wants to demonize Art to get enough people to vote without knowing the facts. First it made me angry, but then it made me sad. This is a Congressman, a “public servant”, someone who has represented us for longer than I've been alive, descending to the gutter to try and scare people into ignoring his record and voting by ‘default’ for him. I was brought up to think of America as the land of the possible, a can-do country where we come together to fight for a vision of an ever more perfect union. It shouldn't be somewhere where people play divide and conquer, scaring others into submitting to further their own interests.
