When Americans compare politicians they don’t like to mass murderers, terrorists and infamous killing regimes from history (aka Hitler), our politics have gotten stupid, ridiculous… and cancerous. No wonder we can’t get anything done. Ineffective politicians mired in brainless partisanship are simply a reflection of the voters who put them there.
In my opinion.
The best politics are when we send people to Washington, state capitals or our county and city councils with the idea of working with opponents in order to craft the best compromise to get things done for the benefit of all of us, not just one side. It’s how our country was founded.
We’ve got people of many different political stripes in our society, and if we want things done we need to support politicians who understand and acknowledge that if we’re going to live together, we have to work together, not shut each other down out of political spite.
Unfortunately, it seems like we’re electing way too many people exactly the opposite of that.
