I see it wholeheartedly. I want my country back. It's always been a bit kooky but in the last 2 years it has went into total insanity. I do not want an insane America. I want an America where we can all live together and be equal and civil human beings.
There are things I don't like about both parties, but they are not equally bad. The conservative side has gotten farther and farther from the center and has cast ethics and honesty to the winds. Now it seems like common decency is frowned upon as a liberal trait.
We have such divisiveness today thanks to Newt Gingrich, Dick Armee, and TOm delay who made a point of making politics angry and mean -- and ideologically extreme. Additional blame goes to Mitch McConnell who deliberately and willfully obstructed any constructive action in the senate, and is continuing to do so today. Add to that the demagogic commentary of Palin, Cruz, Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and other such talking heads without truth or honor. The final blow has been the lying, vicious, fear=mongering, and divisive behavior of Trump.
I am a Democrat, but I always respected Republicans s like Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Howard Baker, Bob Dole, Everett Dirksen, and John McCain.
We can return to the days of constructive, patriotic bipartisan action if voters will get rid of the corrupt politicians enamored with the culture of creed, lust for personal and partisan power, and moribund ideology. It is up to us to start showing real judgment and a demand for real moral backbone.
