    In one word: Unity
    Our progress, indeed our very liberty, depends on unity at a time when politicians and parties are busily trying to divide us; not just between Democrats and Republicans, but between groups (1%/99%, blacks/whites/hispanics, east/west, north/south, right/left).  Their lists are almost endless, but the time for real unity as Americans is not endless.  We have important tasks which need a "United" States of America.

      I agree, and today the US is even less United than during the Civil War.

      Do you wonder why, when we've had 7 years of our votes being annulled? Sorry, you can't unify with "my way or the highway". All you can do is ignore or get as far away as possible. There is no unity here, only people wanting others to obey. No can do

      Can you be more specific, as I have no idea what is your point.
      Thanks

      Agreed unity is a very large task at hand. I think one task is not having like focus toward the different goals. Another is their priority in a manner that is understood by all for the main goal - united as a nation and its national aim globally.

      Maybe it is just me but I think the division is what makes the whole thing work without us  going in any one direction too far. Nobody likes squabbling but it is part of how it works.I like my views but don't let me run roughshod over yours.

      Brad, don't even try bothering to decipher what LMC has to say.  She often makes no sense at all.

    The flooding of refugees and foreigners into this country with no vetting, just allowing all to come in and provide for them free stuff.  We don't know who they are--yeah, some of them are just regular people, but then there are ISIS people and druggies.  And the fact that there is a war on police officers.  That's the first step towards anarchy, and the demise of a nation. Also, Obama's reluctance to do anything about ISIS, and even admit that it exists.

    We are losing the war on drugs. Our young people are dying because of it. It could be the link to other violence such as school shootings and teenage suicide.
