WISE MAN TOLD ME WHEN GOING ON A LONG JOURNEY KEEP IT BETWEEN THE DITCHES | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
In Mexico there are roads where people walk and drive safely all the time, but to the left and right of the roads are the ditches where the sewer flows. The people on the far right and far left--are in the proverbial ditches wading in their own shit. I stay away from both.

That would be a start, though with the current climate I feel like representatives would lump even anonymous legislation in with the opposing party if it didn't contain exactly what we wanted. Imo only fix would be to end the parties-all of them. Have contenders run strictly as individuals.

Case in point. The bill that granted Dreamers legal status and everything the Dem politicians demanded, but they voted it down because they didn’t want the solution to happen under the current administration

"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."

I've always loved the warnings of the founding fathers. Our Constitution was designed to keep these possibilities at bay so long as the people elected good men to office, and so long as the people sought to be good themselves. I don't see much of either anymore. Not that they aren't out there, but their voices are struggling to get through the noise of dissension.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." — Alexis de Tocqueville

The Republicans had a plan on the table and it would have been much better than what the democrats had in mind (nothing), but they decided their ignorance and bickering with their enemies is far greater.
