Good post. Most people on both sides do not support this. The bipartisan crap only serves to divide us further apart. We need to work together. And we
need to stop believing the media bulls***.
Well, this is one of those things that easier said than done, right? Its not even terribly difficult to think
we are "all for" working with
people who think and approach things vastly differently. We are almost programmed to say "we need to work together, but..
In a society where so, so much interaction is done through words, I think it becomes easier for there to be a massive discrepancy in what we say and
what we do. Even between what we think
we are doing, and what we are actually accomplishing.
And that's important, even if it involves a
hard look in the mirror.
Is it more important to prove we are right, internet-debate-style, or recognize the reality of where this is going? In this very thread, time has been
spent cementing the divide instead of trying to work out how we could do better.
I mean, even if you (general you) don't view this to be an explicit denial of someones first amendment rights.. well.. is it more important to prove
that point or stop the trainwreck? That's a genuine question, because we can't do both.
