Epitaph of our republic

I recently read an article about how everything is turning “partisan” and not just politically. Some people think that’s a good thing. I decided to look up the actual definition of the word. Webster’s was interesting: “A firm adherent to a party, faction, cause, or person; especially one exhibiting blind, prejudiced, and unreasoning allegiance; political partisans who see only one side of the problem.” The Urban Dictionary made me laugh … and then cry: “What most voters think they aren’t when they are.”

Note that this applies to everyone! Is that going to be the epitaph of our once “truly great” republic? Get a grip, people.
