I'm not a Republican or a Democrat; I just want to ask MoveOn.org how long it plans to contribute to America's great divide?
Regarding recent budget-cut proposals, or "Republican attacks" as you called them in your recent "Defend the American Dream" campaign, I'm certain that there are errors in whatever cutbacks the Republicans have put on the table. I'm also certain there are tons of government cuts needed at all levels.
Over time, “we the people” have allowed government to become bloated by bureaucrats serving their own interests on both sides of the political divide, rather than the people's interests. Left out in the middle are the rest of us who suffer the consequences of poor governance.
I ask both D- and R-leaning groups the same question, because, frankly, the growing dichotomy is sickening; it continues to tear Americans apart, rather than bring them together in unity. It’s true: United we stand, divided we fall.
So, rather than perpetuating the "blame game,” perhaps consider the reality that government waste has to stop because America simply cannot afford it any longer. Why not help all elected officials figure out what needs to be done to restore the American Dream that has already been destroyed by a government that violates our unalienable liberties and robs from our future generations.
