Conversation -- not presidential decree -- leads to laws

To the editor:

Just a quick reply to Al Moskowitz’s letter, “Law, not conversation, brings about change,” July 30. Laws come about as a result of conversation, not by presidential decree, which is why this country is fractured and getting worse. Starting with the impending disaster that is Obamacare, we have had laws jammed down our throat.

Next it will be about the religion of the left, global warming.

Government works best when it governs the least, unless of course you’re an EBT deadbeat looking for your next installment of someone else’s money.
