      You are right that we should not waste much of our time and energy slicing and dicing the current political problem that our beloved country has faced, but it is important to keep in mind the old adage that understanding the problem is half the solution. How can we collaborate if we don’t share a clear understanding of the problem and proposed solutions?
      I think the first step in solving any problem is to understand the basic elements of the problem: what is the problem, who has the problem, how is the problem currently being solved, and to what extent are the current solutions acceptable in addressing the problem?
