    Has the left/right power struggle placed the United States on a path to self destruction?

    Can the Liberal/Conservative split, that now is consuming all political life in the US, be moderated enough for the two side to co-exist or is  the America, that we all know and love, dissolving before a very eyes?

    Because the two sides have very different views of present and future USA, there is no moderation nor is there any co-existence.  It is illogical to expect such a thing.  One side thinks more government is the answer and one side thinks less government is the answer.  There is no middle ground on that.

    We are a Democracy! The fact that we have two sides that want to be heard, and can be represented is what makes us a great country! What will destroy us is when the people are being heard, and the politicians are thinking of their own pockets!

    It's not the power struggle that's the problem. It's the fact that the politcal parties have become so powerful that they will not tolerate the presence of independent or nascent political parties, effectively defeating the purpose of having a democracy. What we have here is a totalitarianist government with a split personality disorder, trying to undo everything it did, ripping itself apart, and only working together when someone rises to threaten its reign over this nation.

    well it would be nice if a lot of the rhetoric that seems to fuel political discourse here in THESE united states had an off switch, but it doesn't and since there's been a serious  dumbing down of the electorate- you and I- since the early sixties... I doubt it..
