To respect transparency, I should point out that I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat. This makes me an independent who can not vote during primaries. In fact, I once worked for President George HW Bush as a GM 15/10 USIA TV Division Director.

Get it together, Democrats. Following two debates, you were attacking each other while POTUS and the GOP watched in delight.

The spirited Democratic primary debates have featured no shortage of confrontations, with more moderate candidates taking aim at the leading progressives on stage over the feasibility of their proposals with varying degrees of success.

The candidates sparred over climate change and health care, including reparations for slavery, with those of the low-polls using their opportunity to take shots at the Democratic frontrunners. Whether those attacks were effective, however, was another story.

Back in the mid-1960s by American singer-songwriter Chet Powers stage name Dino Valenti wrote this The words have been sung by many artists, so why aren't they listening?

The song is an appeal for peace and brotherhood, presenting the polarity of love versus fear, and the choice to be made between them. It is best remembered for the impassioned plea in the lines of its refrain Come on people... A smile on your brother... Everybody get together... Try to love one another right now!
