Disagreeing Does Not Make a Person an Idiot

Here’s the way to bring people together to at least try to issues discuss
Starts by not insulting their intellect and throwing them under the bus
Insult a person by calling him or her as an idiot
And he or she tunes out and the opportunity for rational thought
Disappears behind name calling demeaning and demonizing rings
Instead of solutions only more divisiveness to the table bring
The divide between Blue and Red becomes wider each day
Soon culminating with anger causing persons to go into harm’s way
Both sides of the aisle and both sides of the networks
A political process that is broken and totally berserk
At each other’s throats unable to solve problems that lurk
Congress stuck in gridlock refusing to do its work
A dangerous world confronts us when we should be speaking with a unified voice
Instead we hear resist and calls for impeachment as the desired choice
Well past time for the rhetoric peddlers to tone it down and chill out
Time to end the dog whistles of rhetoric putting sanity to rout
