Have we lost sight of the Virtue of Our Constitutional Freedoms?

If this presidential election season has revealed anything it is that we live in a very polarized society. People feel disenfranchised, not cared for by elected officials, discriminated against, violated and left out. Expressions of frustration, discrimination, racism, anti-semitism, and just plain hate could be heard from supporters in both political parties. The fringe right and left in particular have not only advocated positions antithetical to the constitutional freedoms that make up the bedrock of our American values but have also engaged in disruptive and violent behavior. As a lawyer in the trenches it is this expression against our constitutional freedoms both in words and deeds that concern me the most.
