The UNITED States of America

Why we all must work together to find middle ground.

The election for President of the United States is over.

For those supporting the President it is a "victory" and for those supporting Governor Romney it is a "loss."

However, after the election "hangover" passes our country needs to unite to find the common ground that binds us as Americans and as humans.

We face the fiscal cliff in January.

Our economy is still fragile.

Unemployment is still too high.

Our infrastructure is way too old.

Our energy way too dirty and unsustainable.

Our troops are still in harm's way.

Notice the use of "our" and "we"? These issues and concerns are not Democratic or Republican issues and concerns. They are our issues and concerns.

So, in the spirit that made our country great all the people on the "left" and the "right" need to come together and work together to find the middle ground if they want a true UNITED States of America.

No one party has all the answers but, working together, as Americans have and can do, we can find a way to a more perfect union.

How patriotic of our former mayor to remind "us" that "we" are still human after a year of partisan attack ads. Mr Miron helped Stratford residents learn the true meaning of partisan politics during his time as mayor and not many are quick to forget his huge payouts to his party before he left
