I still believe we have a chance together, that we're more than the sum of our parts. It's time to work on our communication trouble, though. Splitting up won't leave us any better in the long run if we don't address our cultural aversion to hard, meaningful conversation.
People suffering under our current system can't afford to wait and shouldn't have to wait for national change to get relief from the issues our income inequality and communication issues have caused. We need to work locally now to relieve that pain. If we address those "home" issues, it'll bring voices back into the conversation who aren't being heard today because they're spending all their energy and resources surviving.
We're stronger with all our voices but we've never had all our voices. We've always been less than we could be.
