In favor of opposing opinions

My letter is in response to Ron Kaye's Jan. 1 column, “Time to restore democracy.”

Kaye's column suggests that because our congressional districts have been redrawn and we will have open primaries, this can allow two candidates from the same party to face each other in November, which is an improvement to our current system.

I can't think of anything more harmful to our freedom and democracy than to have as your only choice in a November election two candidates with identical viewpoints running for the same office.

Opposing opinions are what make this country great, whether they are from the far left, far right, or somewhere in between.
