Instead of seeking common ground for debate, I’ve seen these individuals say to conservatives that liberals want them dead. How do you move forward in any positive direction with such over-the-top rhetoric?

You don’t.

The age of Trump has destroyed the ideas of grace and principle. It’s all about choosing friends and naming enemies. There is no in between. If you disagree, then you’re automatically labeled “liberal,” and whatever your past, or your views on the issues, they matter not.

“Conservatism” is now defined as loyalty to Donald Trump. Meanwhile, the national debt grows, his trade wars threaten the economy, and his scandals threaten the stability of the government.
