Why can't Republicans and Democrats come together to solve our nation's problems?
I feel like this is the worst it's ever been.
Because we don't agree. The differences in our beliefs of how things should be run cannot become even because of the dramatic changes each side would create.
"I feel like this is the worse its ever been"
We have to look as to which group has been the least willing to compromise as this is the foundation of getting on with the 'peoples business and has been the hallmark of the institution (Congress) since its founding until now. I still say that the vast majority of the reisistance to compromise is coming from the GOP, that in itself will figure prominently as to who I vote for next fall.
They don't want to! They'd rather feed their egos than take care of the country...it's disgusting.
This may be the worst in your lifetime, but it's definitely not the worst it's ever been. The system is set up so that the two sides present their cases and then there is either compromise or stalemate. Otherwise why even have a Congress? It may seem like we're not being represented, but in fact there are constituents out there who support what their representatives are doing. Maybe it's not what you want, but it is what some want. Frustrating yes, but that's the way our system works and we just have to either sit back and watch or run for Congress and make a difference.

Its really sad that we as Americans let the Democrats and Republicans pull games on us and keep our minds off the really important issues that face us as Americans. How can we not demand real solutions to the problems facing us as Americans. You know I set and listened to the Republican...

I was in another forum where Habee made an interesting post about it is time for a woman to be President. I agree that it would be cool for a woman to be President, but it got me to wondering.Do you think the Democrats regret picking Obama instead of Hillary back in 2008? I think Hillary would have...

If Barack Obama was the Republican candidate, would you have voted for him?Very curious what an HONEST answer would be from both Republicans and Democrats alike...the operative word is "honest".
