At least some of the political divisiveness we see today is caused by increased clarity as more and more Americans see the coming economic cliff, and are rightfully scared. They don’t want to be pushed into the abyss by any party or politician. So those who are sane on the left and right seek to find a way to turn away from economic destruction. We know that George Bush added 4 trillion to our debt in 8 years as President, and that was bad. For the majority who do not trust the media, we know that after Obama promised to cut the debt in half – he increased it by 5 trillion dollars in just four years (very bad). So the sane among us – the non anarchists and the non communists who love America which comprise of 90% of America at least say they want to “fix” the problem. That we can agree upon.
Where we disagree is the solution. The left sees big business as the problem, while the right sees big government as the culprit.
