Watching CNN and FOX is like watching two different America’s. And, politicians seem to have no interest in cooperating with their political enemies to get things done for the country.
I’m writing a political satire that comes out soon. The basis of the book is: “The only way to end the division in the country is to divide the country.” In the book I point out that America is like a patient dying of an auto-immune disease – the kind where the body attacks itself.
We could have some hope if the leaders on each side weren’t so infatuated by their own self-importance, their desire to prosecute their enemies, and their insistence on shoving their agenda down the throats of America.
Why did Trump win? Because many Americans realize how BROKEN Washington is. For eight years Obama stuffed liberal garbage down our throats. It ruined society and left the country far more divided when he left office. Because of that, and the trillions of dollars of debt he incurred, I think he was one of the worst Presidents we’ve ever had. Obama is intelligent, a great politician, and a great leader. But, where he led the country was an abandonment of the morals and values we’ve always known.
He made fringe groups mainstream and it seemed that he made everything about the bad white guy (and sometimes black guys who are cops) and the poor black victim.
It’s not all Obama’s fault but we are at a place now where there is so much division and anger at each other, it’s hard to see a way back.
On CNN, Trump got blamed for violence at his rallies but liberal violence is considered an expression of civil rights.
Republicans are almost as bad. They’ve had seven years to work on a replacement for Obamacare and have nothing.
At least Democrats stick together. Trump will always be fighting the Democrats, the Republicans, the Media, and anyone who is establishment.
It just seems like the country is so uncivil and so divided that there is no way we’re going to get back to a place where we can have respectful conversations with those with whom we disagree. And, without that in Congress, there won’t be any compromise. Without compromise, nothing will get done. I hope the division isn’t fatal but it sure looks that way.
