5 Ways Partisan Politics Harms The Nation

1. No meeting – of – the – minds, for the greater good: Not only, is there no meeting – of – the – minds, for the greater good but it seems very – little, attempt to achieve this objective! When so many seem driven – by their personal/ political agenda and/ or what they perceive as their self-interest and equate opinions they like. With facts, it has the potential to harm us in a relevant and sustainable manner! Apparently, these leaders certain politicians to articulate a message which pits – one American against another and results – in little true benefits/ beneficial actions/ plans being achieved!

2. Driven by personal/ political agenda and self-interest, not common good: Unless/ until voters demand better and more from their elected officials pay greater attention and demand viable solutions and strategic actions politicians will continue articulating a message they believe is populist and will continue getting them reelected! We must do better as voters!

3. Very little (of – consequence), achieved: Why do we accept a continuation of the same – old, same-old behaviors when we need far – better? Issues, which should be priorities and considered promptly seem to be avoided and/ or ignored and very little progress seems to be achieved regarding time-sensitive obstacles including Climate Change environmental issues and reducing – the – divide between our citizens!

4. Constant, us, versus, them, instead of strategic planning: The level of polarization today seems to be the worst in recent memory! Too many seem to care only about themselves and their perceived – interests instead of the greater good, especially in a realistic relevant sustainable empathetic way! We need well-considered strategic planning which provides us with the best – path – forward, in a proactive manner!

5. Populist rhetoric/ promises, instead of real solutions, etc: Only, when voters decide to assume personal responsibility and consider the bigger – picture and demand actual solutions and paths – forward rather than merely populist rhetoric and empty promises will our nation proceed more wisely, etc!

Wake up America and pay closer attention to those who run – for elected office! It's up – to each of us to assume greater personal responsibility in this regard!

    The rights we hold onto have become just ink on an old sheet
    Of parchment. In the last 4 years I have seen the Democratic
    Party become Treasonous against the United stats of America .
    The speaker of the house should be tried and put in prison
    For slander and false accusations against a sitting president and know a citizen of the United state. She is attacking republicans
    Citizens causing harm and has broken her oath . She needs to be removed from ever holding office.
