In response to Fabrizio Griguoli’s letter on April 30 titled “Each party’s focus,” Mr. Griguoli, you stated:

“In the political environment of our nation today, we find mainly two major political parties competing for governance: 1. One political party clearly interested in protecting the rich and special interest groups. 2. The other political party more interested in the commonwealth of the entire nation.”

It is obvious that you know there are two major political parties, but you have no idea what they both stand for.

You are correct with statement one, in which I believe you are referring to the Republican party. But the correct way to state the interest of the second, the Democratic party, in statement two is: “The other political party is also clearly interested in protecting the rich and special interest groups.”

You need to watch the actions of the Democratic party and not just listen to their words, and you will see that both parties are interested in protecting the rich and special interest groups. Neither party has more interest in the commonwealth of the entire nation than the other, action-wise.
