The real question (at least the question that occurred to me as I was washing up the New Year’s party dishes this morning) is why is there so much rhetoric of division in today’s discourse? What is the profit in keeping America divided? This is seen in Washington DC constantly.
A lot of effort and political capital is being spent to maintain this divide. Real progress could be made to improve the human condition if the knives were put away and we shook hands in the spirit of compromise and consensus.
Just my two cents…you get what you pay for. I gotta go…
