The Division of America

Updated on September 9, 2017

Introduction

As an American, I have seen with my own two eyes the degradation of my country's politics into a storm of insanity and ridiculousness. The amount of genuine discussion and debate in American politics has been traded in for incoherent ramblings and heated arguments on all sides of the political spectrum. The poisoning of political rhetoric has been obvious to all willing to see it, and yet nothing has been done to reverse the cancerous course on which American politics has found itself. Division and civil unrest have erupted in recent years, leading to an amount of tension and uncertainty not seen by the American public in many decades. But where is all of this heading?

The Future of Division

It is clear that, as of now, there is no force able to or willing to stop the heightening of public tensions. Groups with extreme ideologies will continue to grow in popularity, and violence between these groups will continue to become more and more commonplace. There is no one great enemy for the United States to rally its people behind. China poses a direct threat to U.S. hegemony over the globe, as do many other developing nations. Still, both the public and the government are far more preoccupied with turning on each other than they are on facing external threats. With the continuation and worsening of these tensions, politics in the U.S. is bound to grow ever more dangerous. Where it goes or where it ends, though, is anyone's guess. The only thing anyone can say for certain about the madness of the American political climate is that its continuation will only harm the country. None of the factors that have led to it seem to be going away, but it is clear that its continuation can only lead to disaster.

One People

We are one people with one overarching goal in our politics; to make our country the best and most prosperous nation it can be. Fighting and killing each other is only hurting the prospects your children and their children after them have for a good life. We must not lose sight of the American dream. We must not turn on each other in our times of crisis. We must come together, and work as one to debate our ideas and use them to create a better nation for us all.

      It is a 'division' largely created by the media, and also by well funded extremist organizations (non-profits no less) and alt-left extremist groups like the SPLC which are given authority to decide what is considered OK, and what is considered 'hate speech' or 'unacceptable think' for things like Google and YouTube.

      We have a perception being projected by the media that is not based on the reality that 99.8% of us are living. And we have major social networks like YouTube catering to extreme (biased) left organizations.

      There is a total disconnect between the garbage the gated-community elites are spouting from Hollywood and D.C. and what the rest of Americans are living with and dealing with.

      These disconnects at first were cause for concern for many people, the initial shock of seeing people attacked at Berkley and elsewhere has some effect... but I think the 'resistance' to this false narrative is growing, people are rejecting it, people are turning off from MTVs social programming warriors and the constant news bashing of Trump (and whites) and the whole 'elitist' views on the wrongs and injustices inherent in our system and its citizens.

      And with Hurricane Harvey and Irma and soon Kose seemingly wiping out a 3rd of the country... people don't have time for these SJWs and the idiots in D.C. trying to siphon more taxes and more freedoms from them... when its all said and done, the backlash to this force fed BS is going to be substantially more than the wave of people that put Trump into office...

      I think D.C. and Hollyweird are in for a major shock, shouldn't be, not after Trump's election... but the fact that they are so totally clueless, and living in this 'alternate reality' where they have convinced themselves the 'Russians did it' and that 'people are waking up to how bad Trump is' means they are in for a rude awakening in 2018 and beyond.
