While it's good you have written this piece, I truly don't see any answer forthcoming. People on both sides of our political divide share a common belief: that partisan politics is the answer to the troubles the US faces. I mainly interact with the "D" side and have a hard time having a discussion when the answer to any issue is to "vote harder". I believe we need to find common ground for all people, not just those on our 'side'.

One would think that public health would be a great place to find that common ground and I suppose we actually have - both sides want to ignore the problem and don't mind sacrificing other people's lives in the process.

I can only hope that we regain our senses before all public health initiatives (not just those relating to the coronavirus) go by the wayside.
