Why are average Democrats & Republicans against each other when Democratic & Republican POWERS THAT
BE only ACT as they are against each other when in actuality, they are VERY CORDIAL against each other w/a few being the VERY BEST OF FRIENDS? When will average Americans realize that politics is a chess game w/ them being the political pawns? Really, wake up Americans & smell the coffee.
The biased or partisan media inflames people into separating into bias tribes they think exist at all levels, when as you pointed out, it really isn't the case.
Well, if someone is willing to be a pawn, what should someone do about it?
As a species humans are the same level of socially and emotionally mature as they were thousands and thousands of years ago. Heck, we as a species may be less mature now due to all of our high tech distractions and material comforts.
It used to be that people had to bust their tails all day to ensure they had basic needs. And even then there were fears it wouldn't rain, and so the crops wouldn't grow. Or were you to do everything perfect, you still had to worry were the Romans coming to kill and enslave everyone. Or the Mongols. So forth and so on.
In the USA today you simply don't have to worry about foreign invasion or starvation due to drought. We're still genetically programmed to worry about such things though. So when the worries of our ancestors and genetics aren't real anymore, we make up new crap to worry about. Those are my theories, anyway.
Liberals have branded themselves as peace, love, tolerance, rational, educated, smart, good. There are several reasons:
* it gives them an excuse to dismiss all contrary views as stupid/bad/evil
* it demonizes everyone with a contrary opinion as inferior
* it gives people a reason to join the "liberal" group - an idiot is considered smart over the conservative because he's liberal, it lets the freaking out SJW say they are more rational than someone making a reasoned argument on a topic
* it gives someone a mantle of morality even as they commit atrocities, as the group of white and hispanic liberals beating up a homeless black woman for defending Trump's star on the boardwalk could say she was guilty of hate and deserved the beating, along with many other similar assaults
* it lets liberals blame the victims of their assaults for instigating it by saying the victim started it with their "hate speech"

A recent CNN Poll shows the majority of Americans think this is "Trump's Shutdown" (and because the GOP is playing dead, it is a GOP Shutdown also).That result should not surprise anyone because Trump told the world that "he will own the shutdown" (one of the few true things he...

I am not an American, but what goes on in the USA is important to the world.Lincoln was a Republican and freed the slaves. One would expect black Americans to generally vote Republican. But they don't.How did this come about?

With the DC shooting, the riots and the general unrest in America since Trump's victory...all of it coming from those supportive of the left; should the Democratic Party be doing more to work toward helping those participating in the violence to find peaceful outlets for their dissent?
