Divided We Fall: United We Stand

US Constitution - We The People

For the next four months, during this presidential election cycle, we will be bombarded with hot rhetoric further dividing this nation. The outcome of the election will be important for many reasons, but perhaps the most important issues won’t even be discussed.

What is happening to our nation? When did we become so polarized? Why? Yesterday we republished an article that said only 52% of the public is proud to be an American. Today we are republishing a video that shows most of the public don’t know how many stars are on our national flag or what they stand for. We used to be a proud, productive and compassionate nation. We used to be advancing together. Now, many of us are angry, ignorant or indifferent. What has happened to our once great culture? When did we forget our common interests and degenerate into rampant me-ism?

What is happening to our nation? When did we become so polarized? Why?

Why is the current administration and the Congress both held in such low regard? If we continue on this course, will it get better? And if not, why do we continue on this path? Is it because we don’t see an alternative? And if we did, what would we do? Do we have the courage to change it?

We believe these are some of the important questions of our time and we would like to hear your thoughts. So please speak your mind in our Comments Section and add your voice to this important dialogue.
