    I quite agree with the “Symbolism” that Rich pointed out. The fact -filled statement-letter says exactly how every single conservative I know feels: The hell with fake symbolism. Sabe that for the ignorants stupid enough to believe in this ploy. It is a Dem idea. Funny how, for 4 straight years of miserable tricks, rule-breaking and shutting republicans out of debate, these Liberals now scream for an honest debate! No sir! No sitting together, no playing nicey nicey, no more phoney charades!They waged war on us for 4 years, and now its time to fight back and be just as forceful as they have been.

    I think you have a valid point and perhaps there is a deeper one that I have gleaned from your poignant letter.

    Yes we are divided, perhaps more than any time in recent history. Simply sitting together does not symbolize togetherness, it symbolizes a lie that appears to be togetherness.

    Perhaps symbols are even more hurtful when they don’t represent the truth. Do they then stand as another reminder of the 800lb gorilla in the room?

    By sitting separately we acknowledge that we have vastly different viewpoints. Pretending to be the same is just dishonest.

    Thank you for the letter, it truly made me think.
