"Those people just hate America"

Could we stop saying the other political side "Hates America"?  Please?  It's nonsense. It's untrue. It's patently untrue. It's downright stupid.

That other political party, whichever one being referred to "loves America" just as much as any one person or any one group. To say otherwise is just patent silliness or irresponsibility or something but it serves no good whatever.

I've heard it from Left Wingers, Right Wingers, Libertarians, Republicans, Democrats and far too many sources.

It gets old. It's gotten very tiresome. It serves no good purpose, too. It gets us nowhere.

That "other political party", again, whoever you're referring to, understands America and things differently, likely vastly differently than you but the fact is, we're all Americans and we all want good things for our country.

The problems arise because, first of all, we don't talk to one another, second, we get emotional and let that get in the way, third, we don't want to listen to the other side and finally, we haven't been good at working at compromises any longer, for all the above reasons.

Let's get to work. All of us. Together. For the betterment of the country.
