Under the Obama, Trump and Biden administrations we have become a divided nation which will eventually fail. Can we start a dialogue at the local level to become the United States of America again? To pass this on to our grandchildren, and be an example to the rest of our nation?

Whoa. Mr. VW asked for a truce and got war. Valiant attempt sir. Keep trying, because you're correct in hoping for cooler heads to prevail.

I agree. And while I'm willing to own up to the part I play in this divisiveness, there's no denying that it's a direct reaction to an unwillingness to being unjustifiably kicked around without riposte.

That won't work, and the country will not follow the example of a tiny town

There was no shortage of pro Trump signs in front of various Van Wingerden properties on Foothill. So not real interested in your opinion on dividing the country.

A perfect example of the tolerant left. Tell me, what's the difference between refusing to hear someone out based on their politics and refusing to hear someone out based on the color of their skin? This vanwingerden person is extending an olive branch and this is how you choose to reply? Ocasio Cortez (I call her Occasional Cortex) did the same abhorrent thing to senator Ted Cruz when he agreed with her regarding the gamestop investment fiasco. She told him to sit this one out and resign since he "tried to have her killed" at the capital building protests (which has already been debunked since aoc was nowhere near the capital building at the time). Truth is, this country is divided. And it sure as heck isn't Trump's, or his supporters', fault.

Wow bringing up Ted Cruz to today? Mind boggling.
