    ..That Truth is in Unity, and everything that works in a contrary manner should be rejected.

    Debates about which “side” is right or wrong serve no purpose other than to distract people from what is really important; Unifying and realizing our absolute potential.

    In practical terms why doesn’t everybody start focusing on all the things the various political groups have in common; and see if we can arrive at a point where all our interests converge.

    Libertarians are ahead of you in that respect.

    We agree that BOTH parties - the demopublicans - are equally fucked up and determined to destroy the nation from within.

    My God, You are a genius, Not only did you just solve what's wrong with America, You just showed us all how to achieve world Peace.

    All we have to do is stop Caring whether or not what we do is, Right, or Practical, or Efficient, and instead just make sure things get done, not matter how wrong. In the name of Compromise!!!

    Why did no one else ever think of that?


    It's pretty hard to not care about who is right and who is wrong, and come to a compromise. When one side thinks the solution is to Print, and Borrow, and Tax, and Spend even more. While the other side wants to Cut spending.

    Not Much Common Ground there.

    Sounds simple doesn't it? Sadly, it isn't. Some people are far too invested in negativity. But I share with you the desire for harmony. I just don't think it's possible.

    Thank you for posting one of my favorite songs. Did you know that Kum ba ya comes from the Gullah language and means come by me, so when they sing Kum ba ya my Lord, they are actually singing...come by me my Lord.

    Yes, I'm very aware of that, and have been for about 40 years now.

    It is why I pound both sides of the argument in almost all cases. One of my favorite shows in the history of TV was "The West Wing." One of the quotes I remember most was when Bartlet decided to accept a Congressional Censure:
