Taking a government class, then promptly forgetting everything I learned. Everything I learned, except for how the Government really is total garbage.
Now beings I really did forget most things I learned, I'm not necessarily going to go off of knowledge or statistics to prove or disprove anything. Instead, I'm going to ask the question:
In a country that is going down the drain, what good is having political parties bickering about stupid unimportant matters?
Now I understand the overall need for political parties. Progress needs to be made, two heads are better than one, etc. But nothing that I have heard in the last few years from either of the parties is anything more than "Republicans suck because they *enterreasonhere*" and "Democrats suck because they *enterreasonhere*"
More of the debates are about proving why the other party and/or runner is a total loser. Why can't both parties bind together to further America instead of bickering like children?
agreed that partisan politics lead to a lot of poitnless bickering, but I'm not really sure what would work as a sollution. parties seem like a necessary evil to ensure that different viewpoints in politics are represented imo
