I think I understand your intent. At least I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt. But I feel the need to point out what should be obvious.
One of the major problems with 'things' is that people in general operate from 'sound bites'. Few bother to look beyond the headlines or employ
some critical thinking and that opens-up disturbing opportunities to use such headlines to mislead and essentially propagandize. We see it every day.
Some publications use this tactic as their stock-and-trade. When you, OP, decide to single-out the Democrats in your post topic you are sending a
distinct (and egregiously inaccurate message) to the 80% of people that will never bother to read your 'Republicans-too' disclaimer. If this was
your intent then shame on you. If you simply don't 'get it' then shame on you.
One of the biggest and most pressing challenges we face as 'The People' is freeing ourselves from the two-party corruption that has ruined this
country. Everything that is done to further the party biases and encourage people to take sides is counterproductive and just plain wrong. It is Fox
News comes to ATS. As long as people are able to take a 'my-party-is-better-than-your-party' position based upon skewed or sensationalist sound
bites we will never be able to purge our political system of the scourge that is the corrupt two-party system that is raping and pillaging all of us.
People prefer to distill things down to overly simplified (and hugely erroneous) A vs. B answers. Even when the real problem is more complex and has
nothing to do with either A or B. Thread titles like yours do nothing to change things and only serve to deepen a serious problem.
Or was that your intention?
