How could we appeal to those in the democrat party that feel the same way as us, though?
Honestly, In my experience, it has always seemed easier to reason with a republican than a democrat regarding political ideology and basic logic when
it comes to economics and social responsibility.
My opinion is that underneath the political label is a certain personality type that leads somebody into believing what they do politically and while
certainly not true in every case, I tend to think more often than not that most liberal democrats are extremely hard liners, unwilling to accept
change very easily because they staunchly believe their views and beliefs are essential for making the world a better place.
I also think they see Republicans as people who don't care about anyone else but themselves, unborn babies and Jesus and have vilified and twisted
the base of their politics to a point that I don't think it will ever be possible to sway far left leaning democrats anywhere near what the
Republicans consider middle ground.
With all of that said, I don't really know how much either side needs to compromise in order to get the job done. My feeling is that without lobbyism
involved, common sense would be allowed to prevail much more often than it is currently and the framework for which our country is founded and ran is
My solution would be to amend the Constitution to prohibit lobbyism completely (legally of course) from politics. Congress should be subject to every
law that they pass without exception and finally, we get back too and don't stray again from the Constitution being the supreme law and framework
that we base our society and government on.
These are actually very simple things however, I don't think they are things we will see in our lifetime without some serious changes from the top
down and that's going to require things get worse before they get better and............ I have no doubt they will.
