Conservatives need to push back against small-town liberals

Los Osos has strayed so far from democracy that my “Trump” yard sign has actually become an attraction. Folks are taking pictures of it, shaking their fist at it and flipping it off.

It’s time that whatever conservatives there are in Los Osos strap up and join me in the display of their beliefs — or abandon any claims they have of believing in a democracy.

In a democracy, one does not sequester oneself because he has found himself in the minority, nor does one become a bully because he finds companionship in the illusion the majority a small town brings. A small town is a microcosm of society as a whole and can be quite woeful in its assessment of what is truly brewing in our nation.

Mike Morgan, Los Osos
