Moderates can help create a more perfect union

I hear so many people say, "I'm sick of it. I'm sick of all the political bickering!" And they follow up with something about getting off Facebook, or no longer watching the news, etc.

The problem is that doesn't help America solve its current state of divisiveness. In fact, the moderates — whether they realize it or not — are the solution to the problems in politics, government, and lack of civil discourse today.

The Constitution speaks of "a more perfect union." It's time we moderates do our part to create one. Do not disengage. Instead, engage those with whom you disagree in respectful conversations. Call your representatives and let them know you expect them to work across the aisle, utilizing that same spirit of compromise that created our great United States of America.
