A divided house will fall. What is the price of choice and options? How high is that price when what we witness is nothing actually happening.
Politics in America is a unique beast. If you scroll through facebook right now you’ll probably see tons of posts on American politics, Trump, and most of those posts will be opinionated in nature. I keep hearing folks say “I’ve never seen the political climate so nasty” and I find those statements amusing. American history is short and yet so many people don’t study it other than what we are forced to learn in sixth grade American History class that we slept through. If you give the political history of the United States a real read you’ll actually find that the two “sides” decided for us have always hated one another. They’ve made accusations against each other, called the other party liars, claimed people are communists, and have even fought duels and killed political opponents. Funny part is that is all the stuff we KNOW about and is documented…
The most frustrating part as a citizen of this nation for me is to watch a president spend his entire presidency undoing what the last president did. Then we have elections and we rerun the show. How much could actually be done if people stopped undoing and just DID for once? How remarkable would that look?
I understand why we have a party system. We are Americans and we love to think we are being given the freedom of choice. But to the intelligent eye we aren’t being given choices at all. We are being given a puppet show and I am fucking over it.
