Actually, major shifts began years ago and I am referring to Congress.
The rules of the House and Senate are up to them. Therefore, other two branches can't fix their problems.
As both parties changed their rules, the other side sought revenge. First one rule, then another, then a third.
You said no we say no. My way or no way.
Instead of opposition coming to the middle ground, the Congress is a mess. It isn't about fixing the rules. They are so mad at each other that every is now spiteful.
Judges don't get consent, bills in the House sit in the Senate, and now, after Clinton we have Trump impeachment.
I fear impeachment will now be part of the brokenness. Whether you believe Trump should be removed or not, this is just another issue of revenge to come in our future.
Every once in a while, here in the Retort, there is a glimpse of hope that we are still able to converse, but we are poisoned.
Compromise? Seeing the fracture between the two parties with no healer in sight?
I don't see any that can lead to unity. Divided the houses are. The public hasn't gone divided as long as there are independents.
No one party stands for what I believe. There are democrat, republican, liberal, conservative, and ice cream & pony ideas I support. There is good stuff there in all our views.
I can't stand on a soapbox as we are all standing on one and we can't see anyone beyond the person next to us.
