Sharma: "You want religion its called a church...."
LOL! I like that line. There's a reason the Founders advised, and set up, the country under the guidelines of Separation of Church and State. They, as human beings, were imperfect and so this guideline had (and still has) a permeable barrier in the manner in which they comported themselves while governing. But the attempt was/is laudable.
We as citizens should adhere to it more closely than we do these days. As many writers have said, it's a grand governing experiment with which this country is engaged. And as far as I can tell from my time, travels and experiences on this planet, it's still the best political system human beings, as extremely social "animals" with varying points of view, have been able to devise. It would be a shame, and something of an irony, to have its essence (freedom of religion, expression, etc.) devolve into some sort of anarchic polarized Republic the end result of which would be that polarization acting as a solvent into which the experiment dissolves and disappears.
But the experiment is still quite young by many standards....so I'm hopeful a way can be found to show the idiots of our nature the "door."
