Now feels like a good moment to say…

We might disagree (maybe a lot) about the how, but I believe we still have a lot in common.

We all want our country to be strong, our people to be safe.  We want to have worthwhile work, to be paid fairly for it, to be able to provide for our families.  We want to pass our values on to our children.

Right?

We might disagree, but I can respect your reasons for the conclusions you’ve drawn.  We can hope for the best for all of us.  It doesn’t have to be a zero-sum game.

Right?

There must be some goals we can agree on.  And if we started with those, maybe there is a way to take steps toward those goals.  Together.

Right?

Happy Independence Day.

    Absolutely right! I think discussion/disagreement can lead to compromise – if we let it!

    Of course! Now, all we have to do is convince everyone else.
