    Bipartisan Politics: Does it Hurt America?

    Sean Hannity banging away every day (and he does... listen to his talk show) to make the Democrats look horrible. Democratic "news" agencies making Republicans look like sinister folks. This happens 12 hours a DAY on certain networks.

    Each side struggles to make the other look like fools. Like Anti-Americans. To the point of cult brain-washing.

    Is this REALLY a benefit to America?

    Its hurts the country when they team up to screw us which they always do, but personally they're just two wings of the statist party.

    It seems that when the parties are working together that it hurts America. So as long as they are bickering then I say good.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Bipartisan does not equal political hacks (who call themselves pundits) raking in the money from the people who are taking their garbage for truth.

    Re: Bipartisan Politics: Does it Hurt America?

    True bipartisanship, true compromise, and trying to work together for the good of the country would be very helpful. But I don't see that happening anytime soon, atleast not until the two major parties are dissolved.

    Re: Bipartisan Politics: Does it Hurt America?

    Yes, but many of our esteemed political scientists have been suggesting that bi-partisanship is a bad thing to go for over the past 2 years, mostly because of the rise of partisans for each side. I disagree, but it is fun to just make it difficult to work with the other guys.

    Until WHICH side wins? Thing is the bickering is on Party lines. That only helps the Party. NOT America. Party lines are bull****. The last two years the Republicans have damaged America because of their own power plays. It makes me SICK. The Republicans are out to regain power at the expense of Americans. They will do ANYTHING to make Obama look bad. THAT is the current state of America. Dishonerable.

    Democrats do the same thing republicans do.If there was a another major party then that other major party would be doing the same thing the democrats and republicans do. I know that when I vote for a particular politician because of his or her ideology then I expect that politician to vote that way, not go and vote for issues that they do not stand for. What would be the point of voting for a republican or democrat if he sided with the opposition on a lot of issues? We vote for politicians based on a particular ideology because of the fact we disagree with the other side on how certian things should be done or if they should even be done in the first place. Plus this bickering between parties ensures that it is that much harder for them to do ****, which means its harder for them to try to screw us.

    I certainly don't want them working together.
    If only there were a way to get them to be elected in even numbers and keep the rampant partisanship.

    Then I'd be happy.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
