Change the majority voting system to a system of proportional representation, and they are forced to compromise. It's that easy (or difficult)

I'm not going to point fingers but it's the *Cough* *cough* left *cough* *cough* that's not doing what's right for America.

"the left" isn't a party. Also, Republicans don't always do what's best, either.
reply

generally the left refers to democrats, or communists.
reply

Umm...Democrats and communists are entirely different things. Are some far left Democrats socialists? Yes. That doesn't make "Democrat" synonymous with "communist" any more than "Christian" is synonymous with "racist", even though some far right Christians are racists.

Sorry, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference when we see hammers and sickles flying over the women's march and so many signs talking about the evil of capitalism or american imperialism at inaugural protests or protests on college campuses. They could've taken their script straight out of a soviet propaganda playbook. While sure it's not democrats, per se; the democrats support it and get the majority of their votes. Christians on the other hand don't condone extremists.

"Christians on the other hand don't condone extremists."

Some do, actually. Google "Army of God"

I suppose I should have clarified "most" Christians. I guess I see it as a matter of scale. The mainstream acceptance of radical ideology in the democratic party vs. Fringe groups that are almost universally condemned by both sides.

I agree that the majority of Christians don't condone violent, extremist behavior.

What do you mean by "radical ideology" in the Democratic Party?
reply
1 up, 4 replies
Promoting hatred of the wealthy, constantly reminding everyone about race rather than trying to move past it, democratic politicians doing their best to demonize Republicans and convince the nation they are the big bad evil racists that must be defeated by any means necessary(mind you plenty of Republicans are guilty of the same, though they again tend to be more to the fringe and very rarely sitting congressmen). None of these things unite us as a nation and very clearly cause harm. While Republicans aren't always the most unifying party either, they at least focus on "Americans" as one large group rather than multiple cliques to be played against each other

I agree with you that practical solutions are lacking, but like I said earlier, the first step is to recognize there is a problem. Racism may not be as overt as it was in decades past, but it does still exist. And when people are aware of it, steps can be taken to reduce or fix it.

One example would be the former police chief in Bordentown, New Jersey. He was caught on tape saying extremely racist things about black people, and was accused of physically assaulting a black suspect. When that came to light, he was fired and is now facing criminal charges for the alleged assault.

edit:

And he deserves it, that case was despicable. My issue is with the broad generalizations about racism. It doesn't help anyone when people make comments like "this nation is racist" or "republicans are racist". It directs anger towards people and ideas that have absolutely nothing to do with the actual racists. It creates divides between the different groups in the US that DON'T need to be there. Most whites aren't racist. From what I've seen of the protests that are held by blacks, a very large number believe that most of us are. That is a huge problem. We are creating more racism, not eradicating the small amount that's already existing. It's also hard to get more minority representation in the republican party if everyone is convinced they are hated(which isn't true)

Let's see how the reverse is also true:

"Promoting hatred of the wealthy"

And I could say Republicans promote hatred of the poor

"constantly reminding everyone about race rather than trying to move past it"

And I could say Republicans constantly deny any racial injustice and ignore it, rather than trying to solve it

"democratic politicians doing their best to demonize Republicans and convince the nation they are the big bad evil racists that must be defeated by any means necessary"

Republicans do the exact same thing to Democrats, which to your credit you did acknowledge

"(Republicans) at least focus on "Americans" as one large group rather than multiple cliques to be played against each other"

I've seen Republicans divide Americans into different (and opposing) cliques, such as Christian vs Muslim vs non-believer, liberal/progressive vs conservative, rich vs poor, etc

Find me one instance of a republican promoting hatred of the poor and I might agree with you. I doubt you can; the closest you'll get is republicans claiming it is not the job of the citizenry to support the lazy. Constantly pointing out racial injustice is not making it better, it is turning the country into a cesspool of hatred. If you can't see that just by how the atmosphere is now vs. 10 years ago, I can't help you. In terms of race relations, the 90s and 2000s were SIGNIFICANTLY more peaceful and less hateful. I have never seen conservatives divide the nation into rich vs. poor other than when speaking of tax brackets etc, which is unavoidable.
Christian vs. Muslim vs. Non-believer is again, coming from fringe conservatives without widespread support. Liberal/progressive vs. conservative I already acknowledged, though I again point out that for the most part it is not republican senators trying to push that hate, but talk show hosts, etc. Listen to Pelosi or Waters speak for more than 5 minutes and see the difference.

PS Imgflip please add an edit function. In regards to ignoring racial injustice and not trying to solve it, what solutions have actually come out of the mess in the last 5 years? I haven't heard of any new civil rights legislation being proposed to fix anything? What exactly are the democrats solving?

I could say that trying to slash funding for welfare and low income programs is hatred toward the poor. I'm not saying it *is*, I'm just saying I could make that argument.

Constantly pointing out racial injustice is not making it better? How are you supposed to fix a problem if you don't point it out and bring it people's attention?

What has improved in the last few years? I've seen things get worse(and no, I'm not talking about the president. Things have been getting worse since long before the election). I get your reasoning with pointing things out and trying to fix them, but it doesn't seem to be working. There haven't been any solutions proposed that I've heard. Does pointing out a problem but not coming up with solutions accomplish anything? So far all I've seen it accomplish is stirring up a LOT of anger and hate.

I totally agree, but I will point out that that same thing is done towards Democrats and liberals as well.

Some people are convinced that *everyone* on the "other side" hates them, and that is totally false. People on both sides do this, and it makes dialogue and cooperation much more difficult.

I'm just pointing out the fact that the left can also refer to communists. Not that I'm suggesting Democrats are communists.
