What would you do to unite America?
Considering how divided we are, politically, racially, religiously, and now by class, do you think we can unite? Do you think we will? What would that take? Would it be to the benefit of all? Do you see the government, as it stands now, as part of the solution or part of the problem?
what i will do is to vote against the party of hate , the republican party of today.
The only thing that would unite us is an attack by a powerful enemy and even that would only work for the length of the conflict.
As 30% or so of the country sees federal government as evil, it can't unite them. As the rest of us see it differently, tearing it on won't unite us.
Religion can't do it either for the same reasons.
Education can help, but that's a long process.
Great question my friend, but you just invited the circus to town, and I hope you like clowns because they're the first to arrive.(laughing)
Im voting against the party of rainbows and sunshine so that we can unite in reality.
Reviving old tried-and-true traditions, including the U.S. Constitution, would unite us again. Some laws were made to stand, not to be twisted and deliberately misinterpreted. The Federal Government as an entity is not our enemy. It's the allowance of electing and appointing people who don't give a whit about our foundation that is the enemy.
Isn't America supossed to be the melting pot of the world. We can only unite when we are faced with a common enemy, ie; nationalism is a uniting element.
When we allow ourselves to be grouped into different realitys that are intended to keep us apart as groups we will never unite. Such as religous groups, ethnic groups, or idealistic groups. Right now government is using the media to do this very thing.
Americans are united. We carry on about many things but at the core of our culture this is a united country. The social problems we are experiencing have loomed for decades. There's not discounting how hurtful and counter productive aspects to being in this country can be. As a whole I feel we want the best things and work towards the common good.
Having grown up in a different era what I have been witnessing is the erosion of American values. This started with LBJ's creation of "The Great Society." That undermined some of the needed values in a citizen and a human being. Self-determination, self-motivation and the knowledge that this is the greatest country in the world and if you want something then get off your butt and get to work in achieving your vision. Instead the federal government has decided that it knows best what is good for us since we're just dummies.
The idea that there is a free lunch slays me. Someone, somewhere is picking up the tab. The world, nor your fellow countrymen, does not owe you anything - nothing. The entitlement society is a sickness as we can easily see if we look to what is happening in Europe where socialism has ruled for years on end. They seem to be waking up. When will we is my question?
The question is, indeed, a tricky one and hard to answer. What does unite mean? If you mean united in the Halls of Congress then they may have only happened twice in the last seventy years....after Pearl Harbor and after 9/11. If you are talking about ideology under normal circumstances without us being attacked, then no, I don't believe we will ever be united and that's not a bad thing. Rational discourse and debate is a healthy thing and necessary for meaningful change.....I do not hate Republicans....nor do I hate the Tea Party or the Communist Party or the Jesus For America Party....I do not agree with many of the things the stand for but I do not hate them. Having said that, there are many more Americans who profess hatred towards another Party today and that is the single largest obstacle towards any kind of unification.
We should decentralize...we are not one country and one culture. We should stop pretending that we are.

What would happen if Congress were 100% Republican?I mean this as a serious question. Consider it a thought experiment. If you want, you can spout the usual political dogma of your party, but give it some real thought and then respond. Try not to give pat answers. And I'll ask this same question,...

Fortunate: "favored by or involving good luck or fortune; lucky." There is a certain amount of luck involved in survival. In life, we seem to be dealt a deck of cards. Some are more fortunate than others. They are born with many advantages and have it much easier than others. Some are...

You know what sort of debate I'd like to see? One with instant fact checkers, a buzzer that goes off when they lie, and a microphone that switches off when their time is up. And I would like to see them address the real issues like.1. The Homeless2. Hunger In America3. All Our Jobs Being Sent...
