The political polarization in this country makes this essay irrelevant. I am sorry, but that is a fact. If what you say here IS true, then treason is being committed by every Republican that is protecting #45.(&actions of the DNC that put up an unelectable opponent probably treason as well) If 40% of a country is committing treason, can civil war be far behind? Some kind of healing has to happen. There is common ground for a lion share of Americans but that is obfuscated by the duopoly. Write to heal the people, not for the echo chamber.
