I detest the race for the President.

This often-vicious, high-stakes battle for the highest office of the land, often tears our country in two. It is during this time that progressive Democrats are pitted against conservative Republicans. In their quest to win the vote, politicians make enemies out of what are otherwise good friends. They stir up a ton of ill will, all to manipulate us to vote them in.


They achieve this divisiveness principally by focusing on the differences among us.

If you watch carefully, you will see that many politicians define citizens of the country by their differences — not the all the commonalities that unite us in day to day life.

In the heat of the battle, each party paints adherents of the “opposing” party as enemies.

Thanks for the article. It was refreshing to hear a voice of reason among all the demagoguery.

Excellent! Well said and, of course, timely. Yes!!! Let's remember we are really all in the same boat... together.
