Not everything is the fault of Republicans, and I think that it's sad that everyone puts the blame for most of our ills on them. I'm a Libertarian (Certainly NOT a Republican.), but honestly, I think that both parties have taken too much of a stranglehold. I think that we need a third option, and that we can (Or rather, we NEED to go beyond the two-party system.) get some more input and new approaches. It's probably never going to happen (I am an optimist in general, but I certainly don't see it happening anytime soon.). I don't know, everytime I turn on either CNN, the mainstream news or the radio, it seems that people are bashing Republicans. And the NRA is getting all the blame for these sadly more pervasive and common mass killings and shootings.
And I'm certainly no fan of Trump (And I WOULD like to see him impeached.), but I am certainly sensing a bias in the media towards him. CNN, ABC, NBC, DEFINITELY MSNBC, etc. There is a place for that (Talk Radio.), but wasn't there a time when the news just stuck to accurate reporting or just reporting the facts WITHOUT any kind of judgement or obvious bias? You know: Facts! Or are those just days of yore?

We are stuck in a quagmire of our own making combined with an indifference from tens of millions of citizens who will not bother to vote much less take the time to become familiar with what is going on outside their immediate circumstances. It seems even when the country stands in crisis over many issues indeed the fabric is under attack both from within and without too many don't care or believe what the demagogues say no matter how blatantly false and/or hateful the message. We have made a huge error in having what amounts to a monopoly of power in the hands of two parties. We are grouped and divided in such a way that forces adherence to the party on all issues whether our political and practical views support such a layered ability to see the world. Basically neutering any free thinking with a ability to see those opinions see any practical fashion for many who do care about the way our country moves forward. This may be the most extreme example of divide and conquer the United States has seen since the 20th century.
