    The tension we live in is due to Divide and Conquer.  First it was the "lazy state worker unions", then the Nurses, then the Teachers, then the Students themselves, then the Brown people, then the Gay people, ad nauseum...

    Have we gone too far down the path of our ideologies in their worst extremes to ever come back to a union of people?

    We all have the bloodlust for revenge on those we hate so much, and with good reason.  But, what if they change their minds?  Can they join up (if they haven't personally committed any heinous transgressions)?  Or will we tell them they aren't welcome, ever?  Are we an exclusive club?

    We can't change the world by forcing it down anyone's throat.  We have the be the party of attraction, not the party of promotion.  Let's be as attractive as we can be.  

    But as my Grandfather always said, "Boy, if anyone ever hits you, just shake it off and walk away, you can take one hit, turn the other cheek and walk away, pride intact", to which I replied, "What if he hits me again?", and he said, "Well then beat the ever-loving crap out of him".
