So you would agree that based on the problems Europe is having with refugees we should learn from their mistakes and curtail entry of them into our country?

Far left and far right are most definitely and purposefully divisive.

It is. A society at war w/ itself. I think most people are somewhere in the middle and can give and take enough to get stuff accomplished.

This is what's driving Independent or unaffiliated voters to being the fastest growing voting block.

This forum (specifically the Politics & Other Controversies section) is full of those types. Much more so than the so-called "leftists".

Bernie has been in government for decades. Name me one thing he's done to divide this country compared to what Trump has done so far in 2 years.
