Why are our leaders so inert? They worry about their “base,” the most vocal and activist members of their parties, and about “losing them,” all for the sake of winning in November. You’re all guilty, every single one who says nothing about the people in your own party who are wrong. It’s time for leaders across the country to start standing up for civility and order, and if we are so “great” here in Minnesota, this would be a good place to start.
