There is a dividing line that is very real between Donald Trump and those who most strongly support him and the rest of us. The rest of us includes independents, Republicans and Democrats who have an appreciation of what our nation has stood for in the world and for the people of our society.

For the rest of us it isn’t about anger, rage against the government, lack of common decency, white supremacy, or anti-Muslim or anti-Semitic attitudes; it is about respect for our nation, our government, and all of its people. The rest of us may differ about political ideas, we may be liberal or conservative, we might not agree on a lot of issues, but we believe in our nation, our government, common decency, and we want to work together to make our government and society work for all of its people. We want things to get better.

The Republican vs. Democrat divide that has seen good people in each party get further and further apart needs to end as we come together to face the very real internal threat to our freedom and our way of life. The devil we face is the very worst in us as humans and that unfortunately is being fed by Donald Trump within himself and within his strongest supporters. - Jerry Eaton, Sioux City
