  •  There is a specific reason I wrote this. (6+ / 0-)

    This is a good suggestion:

    On some issues we have broad agreement like climate change and most social issues, but part ways in areas like foreign policy and the budget.  Why not just work together in areas where we agree, and agree to disagree on the other areas?
    Here's where I'm coming from... The citizen is sovereign, and the government is supposed to be under the control of the people.

    To me, that supersedes party affiliation.

    Yes, political parties may fill the need for policy differences.  For example, someone from one political party may think that a certain tax level is appropriate, and someone from another party may think a different tax level may be better.

    But when it comes to fundamental issues such as the rule of law, justice and equality, and government corruption, we should all find the way to work together.

    I'm assuming that as citizens, regardless of party affiliation, there are some fundamental areas we would agree with.
