Flying eagle is image of political cooperation

Editor, the Advocate:
The symbol of our great country, the American bald eagle, soars on two wings, one on the left and one on the right. The two wings must work in harmony, or it cannot fly. If one wing decides it no longer wants to cooperate with the other, no progress of any kind can be made. It is time for both political parties to wake up to the simple truth that the country depends on both the right and the left wings to work together, no matter what differences they might have.
Our country has been a model of democracy in the world by demonstrating that people of widely different beliefs can get together to achieve common goals. We have persistent problems that need solving. Shutting down the government in hopes of political gain is not the American way.
It is high time for both political parties to work together so that once again our country can soar like an eagle.
