This is a great thread! Democrats and Republicans, arguing over who is to blame for the state of the union!
From the perspective outside of the two party bubble, I think that "we the people" have gotten what's coming to us, to put it bluntly. We have, in my opinion, allowed the politicians from BOTH parties, to manipulate the public mindset, and effectively put us at odds with each other over petty personal differences and beliefs, rather than addressing "real" issues that impact us all. Meanwhile the country crumbles around us. The only way I see anything changing is for the people to really stop bickering with each other over these petty issues of how each other lives, believes, loves, or exercises individual freedoms, and hold our politicians accountable, regardless of political affiliation.
