I believe Conservatives & Liberals desperately need to put their differences aside and start working together. As a well-informed Independent, the fighting and bickering between the two parties is absolutely ridiculous and completely divisive. Most people that fervently beat their party's drum do so from a place of ignorance and close-mindedness. Please stop getting your "news" and talking points from a single source, especially one that is already aligned with your current political views. I know it's fun to surround yourself with people that agree with you, but try to take the time to listen to the other side, look up facts and statistics from unbiased sources, and do some independent thinking of your own. It is really quite sad that we have allowed money, media, special interests and politicians to polarize this great nation to the point where we are this divided and stagnated. Finger-pointing, misinformation campaigns and fear-mongering (from either side) do not solve our problems...cooperation and compromise are what we need to get the America through these tough times. Just my opinion.
