So there it is, what news does political junkies crave? Outrage and gossip, why, because it is alluring. What news do we avoid? Local news, why, because it is boring. What do we think of our partisan opponents, we hate them, but do we really hate them? No, politics is more exciting if we route for a team and spew anger at the other side. It is easier to hate and dismiss then it is to empathize and connect with our opponents. When do we vote? When politics is a spectacle and when do we click? When it can be a distraction. What the hell are we doing? We are NOT taking actions to empower our political values instead satisfy our passion in the sport of politics.
- What you think? Why do you think that way?
- How can we as a country find some common ground where we can unite and fight for a cause? The cause could be climate change, just saying.
