Top 10 Problems With Both Democratic and Republican PartiesAh yes Politics quite possibly the biggest hot debate topic in our society today. I’m not really left or right leaning if anything I’m neutral because let’s face the facts whether you’re liberal or conservative both parties suck and it’s time we own up to it. For reference I’m referring to the Democratic Party and Republican Party because while yes 3rd Parties Do Exist they don’t have enough traction to have any sort of chance at a National level. I’m not saying they need to die but there’s some BIG problems with both sides. I’m not attacking either side this is pointing out Issues between both sides
I thought we were the "United States of America" Ironically we rarely are united. I get we're a "melting pot" of cultures but nobody is "united" politics have split our nation apart. Maybe we should have listened to George Washington who was against political parties to begin with He acknowledged that it was natural for people with common interests to organize into competing groups. But passionate loyalty to political parties over the common interests of the Nation would fuel "the most horrid enormities" — vengefulness, dissension, and repression. Washington feared it would foster a "spirit of revenge," and enable the rise of "cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men" who would "usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines, which have lifted them to unjust dominion." While this was written in his farewell address in 1796 it still holds up well to this day. Without a doubt he would be cringing if he saw what today's society looked like. I wish we could act like the America of 9/12. Obviously I don't want another 9/11 tragedy to happen but the days after that shocking moment was probably the most United we've been as a nation in a long time. I don't think we've been as united since then which goes to show how much damage politics can do to us
Yeah both sides are too arrogant to even consider the other side's ideas. You have good ideas on both sides but neither side can get out of their own way to at least maybe get on the same page. I swear everything in the US would be so much better if the political system wasn't so biased on their own side of the spectrum. And even worse News Sources are the same way they'll report what they want you to hear but leave out certain details that don't fit their narrative
Democrats: Trump is Satan
Republicans: Biden is Satan
Democrats: BLM protests
Republicans: Trump 2020 protests Jan 6
Democrats: Trump stole 2016
Republicans: Biden stole 2020
Democrats: Republicans are bad
Republicans: Democrats are bad.
Everyone has good and bad.
They are. Both sides only want to report on things if it fits their narrative, or they'll spin the story in a way that they want you to see it. I don't want political influence, I just want the truth.
They don't care about working together they only wish to push their agenda and their opinions. Problem is neither side wants to budge on the issues so they don't ever do anything. It's safe to say there's bigger issues at hand than pushing a political agenda at the moment
They don't know what compromise/talking like human beings is.
Both sides ultimately just want power and control over things, and people. The side that is on the losing side fights harder for control of the House/Senate/Judiciary/Presidency/any other section of government but in a way it makes the people think they're getting crazier
I mean just look at major issues right now with social injustice and COVID-19 Even with recent issues like gun control and immigration the parties couldn't be more opposite on these issues. And then you wonder why nothing gets done
Democrats and Republicans agree on literally everything except maybe abortion and gun control. The US is a one-party state.
It's not a surprise why America is so divided and hateful towards the opposite side at this point.
Both sides are absolutely toxic in this regard. If you're LGBT people automatically assume you're a sinner and spawn from the devil himself. If you're a liberal people think you're a Social Justice Warrior and Extreme Feminist who get offended by everything and are extremely anti Straight White Male. Meanwhile if you're Republican people think you're racist and want to shoot everyone with guns. They think you're a redneck from Alabama who doesn't care about Female rights This whole let's assume everyone is the same based on the actions of a few is extremely toxic and both sides need to own up and admit this needs to stop.
This is definitely something I have noticed and it is pretty annoying for example why can't someone be left wing but then also be pro life or something it's like people expect you to agree with everything a particular group views as right or wrong.
I mean seriously what hasn't got infected with politics? Everything has to be Politically Correct now or else people get offended. Remember when the NFL kneeling protests were at their peak in 2016? That's all a political stunt. I'm not against it but political movements don't belong in sports or movies or any other media.
When I watch movies or play video games, I do it to escape from the madness that's happening in the real world. I don't want to see any political bs shoved down my throat.
Political correctness reached Sweden, where it's almost an even bigger problem.
The system we have in place was built and meant for before political parties. The system was built so one individual didn't have all the power, but the whole government was made for individuals if you get what I mean. Now the government is made of parties. The parties simply want to stop each other. In the past it was more of each politician represented the ideals of his state. The system is broken now. Great list by he way.
Just think about all the friendships that have been torn apart just because people have different political views I mean what kind of friendship uses political differences as the last straw?
Not all politicians are like this but a significant amount of them only do what they know will satisfy the majority of people in their area that way they stay in office and get re elected. It's not about the people it's about getting re elected
This is the sad truth. Very few politicians truly care for the American people.
Neither Party has the balls to admit they were wrong. The amount of blame they put on each other is incredible. Take for example the spread of COVID-19 Liberals blame Trump and Trump blames the Liberals instead of admitting they were both wrong and taking action to get this under control no just blame the other side and leave the people up to basically listen to local governments instead
Yeah take some responsibility for once.
