Polls and pundits indicate that America has never been more polarized. Yet, there are also some striking commonalities among all presidential hopefuls in their understanding of the challenges, in their shared quest for greatness and in their failing to offer a path to achieving it.

We are all visitors here. It's time we admit it, bow in gratitude for the privilege of living on Turtle Island, and humbly ask how, together with its original inhabitants, we can care better for each other -- and for our common home.

Dear Donald Trump Supporters

Do you believe Trump cares about making America great again? Purely based on his actions, he's only interested in furthering his own interests. Actions speak louder than words, remember?

Kicker | Posted 03.15.2016 | Politics

The Prince

My concern is not Donald, but the one who waits in the wings to capitalize on the flame that Trump has fanned. Trump may be King now, but the Prince may prove an even bigger adversary to the Union we strive to perfect.

It's hard to navigate the "how can I be a political pluralist in the midst of Donald Trump's ascent" conundrum. Not just because I'm a rabbi. Not just because I'm a Jew. Not just because I'm a Democrat. Not just because I'm a worried father.

Mr Trump talks endlessly about how much he loves America. Well then, do the right thing by America and its people and let the GOP choose the right candidate.

Freedom of speech is a very precious and increasingly fragile foundation of American democracy. And it is very worrying that the latest attacks - attacks that have been full frontal - are coming from people who are running for the highest office in the land.

If we were to be honest, we would describe Mr. Trump as a reflection of ourselves; not only of those who agree with his statements, both openly and behind closed doors, but of the apathy of those in all parties who know better and refuse to speak up.
