Better that we all go along to get along. Rebellious thinkers are just showing off. You can hardly watch a news show anymore that isn’t advocating for liberal or conservative causes.
I wouldn’t mind that so much if the pundits didn’t paint themselves into a corner, thereby forcing themselves to take the same side every time on every issue.
Viewers might as well admit there talking heads are God, and drop to their knees in terror.
It’s as if we’ve got cookie-cutter brains programmed with red light, green light. You have topics listed under each light. You can not cross over and vote greenie if you’re a reddie. No split ballots.
If you think the country would be better off if everybody was a Republican, try thinking about a country where everyone was a Democrat.
That ought to sober you up. If you think everybody should be a Democrat, try thinking about a country where everyone is a Republican.
Neither party, regardless of ballot-box humiliation, is likely to go away.
It would be nice to have a president from either party that we all accepted, or at least respected.
I’m not even sure we’re capable of that anymore. Let’s see, Obama, W., Clinton, old man Bush, Carter, Ford, Nixon? Most of the electorate has come to hate each of those presidents.
As the Pogo people once discovered in an old cartoon, “We have met the enemy and he is us.”
