I AM SO SICK OF POLITICAL SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

I am sick and tired of the Political Self Righteousness so common in the US today. We spend so much time ranting and raving and tearing down the “other side” all the while patting ourselves on the back and feeling like our little clique is gonna save the world, while nothing really happens.

This is the great evil of the Two party system. It creates an us vs. them mentality. Two options become no options as the parties focus on nothing but “winning” and competing, to the point that NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.

Democrats, Human Civilization has been going on for at least 6-10 thousand years. There are Six BILLION people on this planet. NOT EVERYTHING IS THE EVIL REPUBLICANS’ FAULT.

Republicans, Human Civilization has been going on for at least 6-10 thousand years. There are Six BILLION people on the planet. NOT EVERYTHING IS THE EVIL DEMOCRATS’ FAULT!

Both parties follow their cults of personality, Reagan, Palin, Obama, Pelosi, Clinton, Limbaugh, Hannity, Maddow etc. They win us over by telling us how they are going to save us from the evil other.

We sit around and watch the “news” that feeds us what we want to hear. For the Right its Fox news, for the Left its MSNBC and CNN. They too pat us on the back and tell us that we’re right and the other is wrong.

This is why we need to abolish the two party system. When there are 16 completing platforms, its hard to demonize them all. Perhaps people will start actually trying to fix things rather than trying to illustrate how the evil other screwed it up.

*slams his head into the desk*

Sit down today and think. Describe to yourself the typical member of the opposite party. If that person resembles something you’d find in a political cartoon or hear in a joke, then you’ve bought into the lie, and you too are a victim of the idiotic political machine. Perhaps we should rethink what we think we know.
