Letter: Carlson’s scheme is totalitarian

In regard to the editorial in the June 13 Forum: All North Dakota voters must be aware of certain politicians in their leadership roles.

Do you realize the proposal by Rep. Al Carlson, R-Fargo, is a direct totalitarian approach to weed out Democrats? Where is the chance for “exchange of ideas” in a bipartisan or nonpartisan way for studying issues for the next legislative session? Is this fair or good statesmanship? It certainly has not ever been in my Democratic way of thinking.

This idea of Carlson’s has a strong odor of a government spoilage plan.

We need more honest politicians who are “of the people, by the people and for the people.”

Thanks, Forum, for keeping us informed on who are honest people in politics and not those interested in their own self-gain or power, but more of what is good for people as a whole. The two-party system is good because we have choices. Until another system is in place that works, we need to keep what we have honest and doable.

From past experiences, when a seed is planted, the bad seeds (weeds) can be dealt with and be eradicated by the voting power of many faithful Democrats.

I support the positives and know of a few of the great Democrats in the past who supported North Dakota in a good way. All I can say is, support the positives in the next election.
