Israelis and Palestinians are killing each other. The fighting in Ukraine continues. The Islamic State bombs a Shiite Mosque in Afghanistan killing worshipers. Republicans in Congress, divided on who they are and what they want, bring down their own leader and can’t decide who should be next.
But I think the MAGA republicans do want conflict. Won’t be satisfied without it. Have you read the article about Jim Jordan in the WP? Pure confrontation politics. Have to win ...not just win but crush the opponent. That’s the problem. That’s what they tell their constituents. What do we tell those constituents that they would possibly believe? Scary times but not unprecedented in this country.
The Them and Us mentality is taking us down a dark path. Let's look to the history of the civil rights movement, the peace movement, the women's movement, the environmental movement....changes were made for the common good, albeit many of those are now being lost. The people must elect politicians who will govern, not put up barrier after barrier. Common good for the entire nation. Ears open, sound bites shut.
This message is sooooo important! Thank you.
