Having been around for awhile , I have come to realize that many problems of our culture , society and our politic spectrum , quite likely , will Never be solved ! And more than likely simply because there are not only just Too many of us but because by nature , we are ALL just too differing in our personal opinions .
Is it simply time to face it ----Americans by nature may never really agree on anything ! That alone seems to the largest part of our historical and genetic make up , perhaps a leftover trait of our political beginnings . I can see a future of divisiveness that never allows us , quite shamefully , to ever cure the real and important ills of our many cultures ,our society , our country !
I have a theory ; Throw five Americans into the same room and ask them what color the walls are and receive five answers ? Your opinions ?
I agree, and disagreeing is not always bad! Yes, in some ways, such as determining the direction of a country, it can be bad. Most of the time our disagreeing is good. We get to be different, and hopefully learn just a little along the way about the people who disagree with us!
I'm thinking that that's my point exactly John, Peeples, On the important political problems of the day, are we just too far apart ?
No, our differences give us a little balance.
That depends on what we consider important or political. Personally I think many social things should not be political things. That would solve a bunch of issues. If we take things like marriage out of politics maybe we could focus on real things like reducing both corporate and social welfare, lowering the country's debt, or protecting our citizens without infringing on our rights. With that said, yes we are too far apart. Everyone's priorities are in a different spot, with the majority of the country only thinking about what the mass media tells them to think about. It's kind of sad. We're all too far apart, but the majority don't even really know what they are suppose to be fighting for anymore, they only know what they've been told to fight for. Then again, this is coming from my independent slightly conspiracy theorist view.
Hi Peeples , How about congressional and senatorial gridlock , Inaction on the most important issues , even issues that are important to ALL parties , and just plain political productivity, they aren't overly good at accomplishing anything ?
The problem is everyone thinks those things are happening because of the opposite party. Everyone is busy blaming the other. That is WHY we are so far apart, everyone is pointing fingers at everyone but themselves.
Can we put most of the blame then on media ?
Personally this may sound mean, but yes, because the masses seem to be idiots incapable of thinking for themselves. They seem to only do what the generations before them have taught them or what the media tells them their party should be doing. Again I know that probably sounds a bit arrogant, but I believe it is true.
Of course, we could all just be robots. That would solve the problem of "differences".
