We need to find that common goal and that leader that can unite us or we are destined to fail as a country.
Gee, I don't know where to begin with this one. It kind of reminds me of harkening back to the good old days in a nostalgic fashion. "It was better back in them days when everyone was the same,". Unfortunately even if it was better (which I don't necessarily think it was) the one constant is that every thing is in a constant state of flux, things change and you adapt and overcome or fall by the wayside.
We are diverse, a diverse Country, due to all the different backgrounds of people who have been born here or have come here. Diverse backgrounds, but that doesn't mean we can't have common ground, common goals, common standards, such as honesty, hard work, fairness, equality, justice, decency, compassion, strength. Those qualities aren't exclusive to one country, race, political party, or nationality.
Recently we have had leadership which wasn't conducive to unifying people and making them secure in following their leadership. Hopefully that will now change or not. Either way like the theme in that Movie, No Country For Old Men, you can't stop what's coming.
You seem to have difficulty comprehending what I write. Where did I suggest that the old days were better because we weren't diverse back then?
That sir is an assertion not sustained by fact - the fact of what I said or the facts of the past. We were just as diverse in 1920, or 1950 as today. We had all types of ethnic groups in this country, many of whom did not speak English.
Finally, I left the last line of my post in the quote for you to read again. Isn't that essentially what you say in the 2nd to last paragraph of your post? Why do you feel the need to attack attack attack? Why not take what I say at face value, disagree with it if I am wrong or misstating the facts, but if you agree why not build upon it? In either case do it in a constructive manner.
Do not think that as a country we should strive to come together and unite in a common goal, under a leader we respect? What is wrong with that idea?
Do you believe that we are united now and not splintered as I suggest?
It was not a left-right post, but an American post.
Sorry then, I misunderstood what you were saying. Yes, we should unite, but we have to look at things honestly especially the things that divide us. More on this later.
