I am neither republican or democrat, hell I'm not even American. So I'd like to give you an objective look at how the American political parties treat each other.

The first litmus test, before country or anything, is abortion. Especially for republicans running for office. I can't vote like that. My first litmus test is the economy. The anti abortionists, end time believers, white separatists make the GOP hard headed and mean and unpalatable to democrats and independents like Bernie.

I find it almost impossible to have dialogue with a lot of Democrats because they are so invested in the emotion of their positions that it becomes impossible to have a reasoned and logical policy discussion.
When I discuss policy with Democrats, this is usually how things go...
1) Gun Control: Show facts on gun control not being effective. Democrat response, "You are ok with little kids dying like at Sandy Hook."
2) Illegal Immigration: We need to secure our border. Democrat response, "You are a xenophobe"
3) Healthcare: We can fix our healthcare system with free market principles. Democrat response, "You want to see Grandma die" or "you don't care about sick children."
4) Tax Policy: We are taxing people too much. Top 5% pay 80% of taxes. Democrat response, "You are greedy and don't pay your fair share"

The real problem is that there shouldn't be left and right but American.
I also see that out of countless threads where left is bashing right and right bashing left. It's been a small number of people. But because of these small people who I believe are getting paid to do such a thing. Makes the rest of us look like we are just as bad.
Most if not all. Honest hard working Americans truly don't give a # about none of this left and right crap.
These people who use the Internet for a living are the ones creating this fiction in front of us and has the nerve to claim that the rest of us feel the same way.
This is why you can't outlaw spanking. These millennials need and ass beating.
