Is it too optimistic to hope for a nonpartisan government in the next decade?
My political science teacher in college told me that different parties are needed government in order to have checks and balances. Without the different parties there may arise too much control and power in the government. I think it's necessary but I don't care for the mudslinging that gets us no where. Lets have intellegent discussions on the different problems on hand and I think we would all be better off.
We already have one -- have had one for years -- it is called the DemoPublicanFascistSocialist party. The political "warfare" you apparently see is just various cliques vying for power.
I like that sentiment MountainMan, I think that's partially what I was asking, can we put aside our differences to create a more just and less corrupt system. George Washington warned that splitting the country into political parties could have catastrophic consequences, so I hope the parties will eventually cease their mindless bickering and become a single strong, sensible party.
When we get "beyond" borders and monotheistic gods maybe ...
I hope so...legislative balnce needs a two party system, to insure debate and compromise. Just because you want it one way, does not mean others feel the same. One Party means one opinion only, and that is a basis for Socialism or Monarchy.
Obama is already trying to organise the masses for a One Party push, or possibly make the Executive Branch seperate and more powerfull. And people will not stand for it.
Look at His Czar selections, totaly un-necessary as we already have departments and a Cabinet in place to do those jobs.
Why is he trying to By-pass the Cabinet away from Legislative authority? Seems Odd to me!
No One party system, ever. The Constitution stands, and has stood timeless tests, and check and balance is needed.
It would be better to work, not just hope for, but work for a non-lobby system, and end the corruption, then real compromise can take place. The Senate and the Congress must be responsible "TO" the American population.
Work for that Goal, it makes more sense for equal representation to prevail first. (Think!) It is not about just getting your way!
It is about equal treatment for "ALL" people, period!

Government is mostly an agent for the greedy and ambitious slime of the legal world to amass personal power. There's barely a hair's difference between democrats and republicans anyway. It's all about ideology and swaying the masses. The masses need conflict, whether it is real or imagined. It excites them, makes them feel like their vote matters, like it's going to turn the tide of battle for freedom and democracy.
There is no battle, just a bunch of pigs with suites and cigars. The ebb and flow of the administrations is meaningless. If a democrat wants the government to grow 5%, the republican will say it should only grow 4.5%. It's just a game, and we're all getting played.

I've read countless numbers of threads about partisan political talking points over the years. They range from abortion, gun control, immigration, social justice, healthcare, protected classes of people, voting rights, and national defense; just off the top of my head. About half of...

I really don't understand how anyone can trust government. It is in their interest to deceive, to appear to be successful at all of their endeavours, and to redirect blame away from them. I suppose that is why there are two parties in American government so that whoever is in power has someone to...
