    Conley, Your Kum bah yah incantations do nothing to hide very real divisions in our society.

    These are the real questions on the table:

    Should the goal of the U.S. be creating a one world market, regardless of government type?

    Does the united states exist for the people of the united states, or does it exist to create a global power structure for the world elites?

    they aren't my "Kum bah yah incantations"; they're Thomas Jefferson's.

    Don't be riddiculous. Everyone here already knows what I will say, and they definitely know what RWA will say. Besides, his questions are wholly unrelated to the issue at hand, namely reconcilation between the two parties. Pointless questions such as those aren't worth addressing. If you're so concerned then you can answer them yourself.

    Funny how suddenly its all about reconciliation between the two parties. My guess is that its because the Dems aren't going to be able to do jack shit without help from Senate repubs and the prez.

    I don't see how they are "pointless questions". But, I am not surprised you don't want to answer them, as are many Americans. But I guess thats why he is asking the question. Probably because answering those questions forces all of us to evaluate the policies we've supported, and how in supporting them we look like hypocrits.

    The question is moot due to the false premise.

    I guess the title wasn't as obvious as I thought it would be...
    Regardless though, it's important that the parties rebuild there relations. Like it or not, you have to live with the other half of the country. It's only by working together that we can really accomplish anything. I genuinely hope that the Democrat's moves towards bipartisanship are well-intentioned. The Democrats have a lot to learn from the Republicans, and the Republicans have a lot to learn from the Democrats.

    Nice deflection...
    You didn't respond to my request to answer RWA's questions.
