Meet the Candidate: Steve Diamond (Arizona)
My campaign was covered by DemCastUSA in a series of interview Q & As.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We must emphasize our common humanity and common interests. For example, college-educated professionals are slow to realize that they have much more in common with industrial and clerical workers than they do with the 1%. Both groups have to work for a living. The 1% generally live on investment income. When this commonality remains unseen, we end up with the current “elites” vs “deplorables” scenario. It’s a false enmity nurtured by the 1% to further their own interests. With education and mutual respect we can dissipate the smoke-screen.
