Being Individuals, Indivisibly

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

One of the things I like that most about Indivisible is found right in its name. I like that idea that moderates, progressives, Greens, Libertarians and all others can come together and agree on a defensive stance and be indivisible.

We all know that saying NO is easier than saying yes, as the GOP is discovering after eight years of no, and there is something unifying about it. It does mean that we are putting our progressive ideas aside for a while, but it does allow us to form bonds and open up dialogue with the wide array of non-Trump supporters out there. Now, in “Trump’s America,” we know that indivisible we are strong. With an aggregate approval rating of only 38% (Five Thirty Eight), we know that those who stand against the Trump Agenda far outnumber those who approve of it. Indivisible we can prevail.

So while the pledge of allegiance was referencing how the fifty states will be indivisible under a federal government, we can invoke the same language to motivate and inspire us to stick together, work together and be engaged in the process together.

Indivisible we are strong.
