If the Democrats are the party of wild ideas and intrusive government from birth to death, Republicans are reduced to obstructionists with no viable ideas and the party of just say no.
The battle of words, insults, lies and misinformation on both sides assures we are going nowhere fast.
We have not seriously addressed let alone solved one serious problem in years. All we do is throw mud, introduce legislation and let it fall by the wayside so more mud can be thrown.
And we are so ensconced in our own extremes we seem happy to allow it to continue and just blame the other guy.
Talk about shooting ones self in the foot.
