One-Liner Wednesday — Dangerous Ground

“A society is moving toward dangerous ground when loyalty to the truth is seen as disloyalty to some supposedly higher interest.”

This quote is attributed to American novelist and essayist Marilynne Robinson.

I think the Republicans in Congress should take heed, as they are definitely treading on dangerous ground. Especially now that indictments are being issued.

Written for today’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt from Linda G. Hill.

    I agree and that higher interest by the republicans in congress is no longer a faith in their own beliefs (republican interests are fractured between the tea party, traditionalists, Trump’s whatever you would call his policies) but that higher interest which unifies the republicans is only their hatred for the democrats. The same thing can be said about the democrats also.

      I’m not sure I agree with you about the Democrats. Sure, they can be stubborn, but unlike the Republicans, I don’t think the Democrats put party over country. I think they are willing to negotiate and compromise when it’s in the country’s best interests. Not so with the Republicans. Most of them, anyway.
