    “In the rancor between fundamentalists and Darwinists, both groups miss this essential common ground, the area where we might agree. No, where we absolutely must agree, if we are to build a better world.”

    I would state with certainty that this same statement applies to Republicans and Democrats. Congress has devolved into a group that fights over differences. They should, rather, find the common ground that we all must agree upon for our country to flourish. But, in their view, they get re-elected by standing their ground and opposing the radical idea of “that other side”.

    I have a t-shirt that says “Fire Congress”. I get lots of positive comments when I wear it. I’ve worn it when Democrats have had the majority, and when Republicans have had the majority. I get the same number of positive comments on the shirt either way.

      I agree. But I think Pogo identified the real problem in democracy: “We have met the enemy, and he is us.”
      Got a post coming on that one…
