I was reading this.
And thought this:
We are obviously a divided country.
From the beginning, we were headed to The Civil War.
Then we faced Fascism and Communism (I know, I know).
And that helped unify us.
We need a common enemy to unify around.
We have one.
Unfortunately a large segment of our society is defending that enemy.
I bet if we faced space alien invaders, that same segment would defend them also.
"We must understand why they fled their planet and want to take ours."
