Letter: Finding nuggets of common ground with Beem

I read Edgar Allen Beem’s “Sour grapes” column (“The Universal Notebook: Sour grapes? Sore loser? Not me”) and found some points I could agree with. They were brief, sometimes only a part of a sentence, but for me these three resonated:

1 — “What Americans really seem to want is for the government to leave them alone …”

2 — “The LePage campaign was highly successful …”

3 — “By their vote on Nov. 4, Mainers and Americans essentially said they think government is the problem, not the solution.”

I couldn’t have said it any better.
