Opinion: Partisanship Cannot Be Tolerated When Decency Is The Only True Recourse

Loyalty in most cases is a noble and endearing quality when given to those who have earned it by embodying righteousness, fairness, and truth. However, loyalty blindly imparted in politics is a dangerous and deadly cancer within the body of democracy.
