To the editor: Your article discussing the opportunity of a presidential election showdown between Gov. Gavin Newsom and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis completely illustrates the issue for thousands and thousands of voters.

Our decisions are each excessive to reverse poles. For years I’ve hoped for a Scottish Nationwide Social gathering-type various within the U.S., someplace close to the center.

Most residents are usually not excessive to both aspect, but we’re frequently pressured to select from these choices. Or, sadly, we don’t vote in any respect.

To the editor: That is the story of two governors. In California, Newsom practices the politics of inclusion. In Florida, DeSantis practices the politics of exclusion.

Democracy is outlined by the idea of inclusion. A frontrunner who whips up help by excluding a few of his or her fellow residents from their fundamental rights, and insinuates that she or he is defending all the individuals’s rights, is as tinny as any snake-oil salesmen of the previous.

DeSantis’ technique is to outline the worthy and exclude the unworthy. Newsom’s inclusion tasks tolerance and respect for the dignity of all.

Observe the chief who welcomes all.

To the editor: I disapprove of DeSantis however nonetheless object to your images of the 2 with this text.

Newsom’s picture exhibits a good-looking man (he can’t assist it) with a small smile on his face, whereas DeSantis seems to be like he’s smelling one thing disagreeable.

That is wordless editorializing. Isn’t this betraying journalistic integrity?
