How could The Augusta Chronicle's editorial staff justify printing "Right-wingers hide behind patriotism" (March 30)? This letter is nothing more than left-wing, hate-mongering vitriol and name-calling that contributes nothing to the ongoing debate on the issues facing our nation.
As my mother always used to tell me: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. The modern corollary to that sentiment would be: If you have nothing constructive to add to the discussion, please keep your mouth shut.
Name-calling and hate-mongering only cloud the issue and prevent us from coming to a consensus.
