    Some green nights I stay up and think my ideas can solve these problems on politics.

    For example, give the people an extra day off or a cash for their clunkers. Something to solve the great partisan divide.

    Any ideas folks ?

    I know you have some good ones, let's hear em.

    This was something that could've been solved before social media.

    Heels are dug in. Everyone has a platform. Everyone is reminded how shitty the other party is on a minute by minute basis. There is no end in sight.

    Perhaps aliens will come down and give us a solution, because humans are gonna human.

    Run a third party that doesn’t give a shit about abortion, cares about wages and the economy, and promotes America first.


    Full sentences are a bonus at this point.

    Twitter would block them. They didn't even want Unity 2020 that promoted Bipartisan politics posting. Twitter wants the world to be exposed to only liberal voices.

    The divide is built into the system. That'll always happen when there's only 2 parties. Each becomes the polar opposite of the other. Hence, a divide. Don't make it a winner takes all system.

    The USA is flawed and won't even last as long as the roman empire.

    I don't think we as humans are well programmed to handle so much information so often. We lived for millenia in simpler times, but now everything is available at all times and we can't process it well. We live in socia media bubbles, we see 1/10th of a video and construct a reality around the rest, and we bicker incessantly around things we truly only know a very small amount of. No matter what your outlook, the internet will provide you with a community of like minded people to reinforce that.

    Until we learn to forgive and forget and to critically reason we are in deep trouble.
