    It seems to me that conquering this politically motivated polarization that is infesting our USA is & should be our main objective. Do you agree???
    Possibly returning to Constitutionally based law might be a 1st step?

    Our founding fathers interpretation might be a good place to start. Watch out for SEMANTICS, also known as 'doublespeak'. A defense attorney to this day can be prosecuted by the court he/she is litigating in on a clients behalf, 'IF' the court deems that said attorney is attempting to change the KNOWN INTENT of a law in a fraudulent way. Most multiple definitions of Constitutional law have been proved to be nothing more than politically motivated semantics. A good 1st step is to elect Constitutionally based REPRESENTATIVES of & for the people! We ALL need that protection to safeguard us against politically motivated predators.

    Once again by whos' modern interpretation of the founders intent? The right, left or Libertarian, all of whom think their idea is the one and only, true view? Unfortunately most of these claimants have never read, let alone even heard of the Federalist Papers nor even considered the fact the founders wrote multiple letters and engaged in multiple debates concerning their intent and where such intent was made very plain.

    See Federalist 10.

    There are parties. They argue. They have argued since the days of Cain and Able.

    Democracy is we yell back and forth, and make a decision, then we find a new topic to yell about. Some of them are important. Sometimes yelling is just fun

    Good point on the MODERN interpretation. To answer your question... It's called a BRA(singular) because a bra holds such a fine pair that man deems the 'cargo' a bra encompasses as completely inseparable or as ONE(ever try to play with just one???). Their called panties(plural) because what's in em belongs to any one that can turn her crank!

    Polarizing and regionalizing the US society is the method by which the people are controlled.

    What's killing America is an elite criminal class of corporate cronnies and the tools they put into high office.
