We are now experiencing exactly what George Washington warned us about. Neither party is serious about finding solutions; they are focused on building their own little political empires where their guy wins, “while the country burns.” This is not leadership, but national homicide. They seek to incite political support and raise money by pitting us against each other on issues like abortion, immigration, gay marriage, and gun control (to name a few). The issues are less likely to be solved, but by doing this when you vote, you will not vote for someone, but against someone. This way America loses, they try to convince you your vote is wasted and therefore don’t vote.
The lies are repeated for every election, and they must be ignored.
