LETTER: Fear of rage over a bumper sticker a sad sign of the times

To Ozaukee Press:

I have been brought to tears over fear for the survival of America’s democracy.

It was Lyndon Johnson’s Civil Rights Act that allowed me to get employment training to advance in the federal workplace after I became a widowed single mother of three young children in 1975. This allowed me and my children to stay in our home, have adequate food and transportation and access to good schools.

Recently, fear prompted me to take my “Tony Evers for governor” bumper sticker off my car because some drivers openly expressed their displeasure with my choice; one driver pulled up alongside me and shouted obscenities because of my bumper sticker.

Now my heart is heavy with concern over the entrenched practice of gerrymandering that has drawn political districts to favor Republican ideology that puts personal financial gain above the health and well-being of our planet’s fragile ecosystems and all beings inhabiting earth.

Our democracy can only survive when competing ideologies work toward reasonable compromises.
