Are all these political issues a false flag themselves to make us not look at the major issues of the country? I mean a lot of the countries problems are fixable if we as a country get rid of the BS.

Pretty much yes!
We know with all of these "hearings" and "trials" NOBODY will swing from the neck, whicj is what should happen to those who commit treason against the peoples of the US, especially those in an official capacity, everyone from the president right down to the cops killing and beating folks unjustly.
But we seem to have ADD or something and whenever....oooh a bird outside!

I was always under the impression that each political party took half of the good bits so that no one gets all of them. And each political party gets half of the bad bits so that they can accomplish their mutual goals.

Also, because the politicians are not grounded in real life, they might not be as empathetic with whom they represent as they should be, especially Republicans I could see being less empathetic with the poor.

400 lobbyists to every 1 politician.

Want to get rid of the BS? There's a good place to start.

There should be lobbyists for the people, in at least a 2:1 ratio, that are brought in as experts on certain local issues, including small businesses and schools, so that policies "Trickle Up"

There should be no lobbying period. The politician, in effect, is your lobbyist. If you need to hire someone to get them to do their job properly, well, you get the picture.

No lobbyists, if the lawmaker wants his peoples opinion, he/she should ask them.
If they cannot do this simple of a task, then why are they in office?
That is their job.

Wouldn't that just be an expert witness? A lobbyist has the sole interest of making policy for someone (that is usually not the public) to profit from.

So if the problems are so easy to fix how are you going to do it?

The conservative way or the liberal way?

See the problem?

I couldn't tell you if all the current events are a false flag themselves, but there are certainly lots of distractions in our world, things that keep the general population occupied so that they don't poke their noses where they "shouldn't" be...

If anything, the entertainment industry is the one most responsible for keeping folks distracted. Plus, people are already pretty well distracted with their full time jobs or school, getting home after long days then having to care for their kids/family or doing homework etc... When all the work is done, most people go straight to entertainment to unwind.

If you ask me, the system we've built around us is pretty much the distraction. Keeps us too busy to worry about anything else.
