Letter to the Editor: About the Fed shutdown

I have colleagues on the left red faced and angry at what the Republicans are doing! I have colleagues on the right decrying about socialistic programs that are fiscally irresponsible. I have colleagues from the Religious Right declaring violations of the Constitution represent treason.

I have colleagues from the Progressive left espousing the need for a global nation and abandonment of the anachronistic Constitution (of which I strongly disagree).

The point not well advanced is that Congress is not in fact dysfunctional at all. By design, when the people are divided, as are their representatives, cessation of further legislation is indeed the proper course of action.

As illustrated in the 2012 election, the country is indeed divided. And, rightfully so, further legislation concerning issues that we are divided on should be halted until reasonable discourse and more thoroughly considered solutions to our present issues may be adopted.

Disagreement is indeed designed into our founding documents. This is good.
