What can be done to bring about unity in the American political scene?
Unity for the USA.
I have questions in response & a couplet.
Why would we want unity?
If everyone moves in unison, who will stop us when we are wrong?
Have we ever been unified?
Has lockstep thought ever brought about anything good?
I know not the answers
I just follow the dancers.
In all honesty the nation does not want unity in American politics!
The system is designed to have one party in power and an opposition party to offer "alternative" solutions. In the past a war or recession/depression united the parties to do what was in the (best interest of the nation) but those days are gone. Awhile back I wrote a hub that offers more of my thoughts on the subject.
"Political Gridlock! It's the American Way!

Tea Partiers, Wall Street protesters, and education protesters all need to realize they are angry at the same people and the same things. The protesters must all unite. The Democratic and Republican Parties are idealogically united, by the way. They disagree on some very minor points, but they put on theatre to make us think they are always in disagreement. They are like two factions of the same party fighting over who gets to steer the ship of state.
I don't want unity in Washington. I want a divided congress and a white house unable to issue edicts to do what it can't get through that gridlocked legislature. If we can't roll back this unconstitutional national state we have so foolishly allowed to grow to monstrous size, then let's immobilize it and hope for an opportunity to put it on a diet.

I find it hard to believe that even people who voted for Donald Trump aren't starting to realize that there is something seriously wrong with him. He is either insane or such a narcissist that he's incapable of rational thought.Let's not even talk about his policies. Let's just discuss his...
