This is what terrifies me about the USA's future...
First I'll say this prob won't affect me as I'm an old man, 62 years old. But my boys are in their early 30s & we have a 5 year old grandson, I worry about them.

I'll start with warning from the Founding Fathers against ever turning into a nation with just 2 political parties. It seems the vast majority of our Founders considered this a fatal trait for the longevity of our Republic.

In George Washington's Farewell address he said he feels that disagreements between political parties weakened the government. Moreover, he makes the case that “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.” And this my friend this where exactly we are at TODAY!

John Addams, our 2nd President wrote that “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” Again, we're at the point that Addams feared most!

Thomas Jefferson our 3rd President, who was Adams’ rival in this emerging two-party system, agreed: “The greatest good we can do our country is to heal its party divisions, and make them one people.” AMEN!
These two brilliant, gifted and esteemed rivals agreed, yet they couldn’t stop it.

In an article about the failures of America's two-party system, it was written that the triple developments of the nationalization of politics, the geographical-cultural partisan split, and consistently close elections—have reinforced one another, pushing both parties into top-down leadership, enforcing party discipline, and destroying cross-partisan deal making. Voters now vote the party, not the candidate. Candidates depend on the party brand. Everything is team loyalty. The stakes are too high for it to be otherwise.

In other words, staying in power is the ONLY goal, damn everything else!

Our first 3 Presidents warned of the extreme dangers of the situation we find ourselves in today!

I know MANY people that are more loyal to their party (both sides) than they are to the Untied States! And that's horrifying to e & it should be to you as well! And what's astounding is our political parties are CORPORATIONS! I honestly think many believe our parties are part of the US Government! They're NOT, as I said, they're corporations, & the goal of every corporation is to make a profit, & in this case the profit in not such much money, but POWER & at any cost.

It was not like this when I grew up, my parents had many friends of both parties, & they stayed friends. My parents generation held to the notion that their friend's who were of a different party than themselves were just misguided, today people honestly believe the "other" party is actually EVIL! Which leads to name calling that has infected our nation & dehumanizes the opposition, which a VERY dangerous thing to do! In 1930s Germany, Jews were constantly portrayed as evil, & called vicious names, & we know how that turned out.. Plus name calling & calling someone evil is totally opposite of what our Lord taught! We all should remember this the next time we call a Democrat evil or a Dem calls a Republican a Nazi. Jesus even taught that just calling someone a fool puts you in danger of Hellfire.(Matthew 5:22) But it seems politics supersedes what Jesus taught among even his own "followers"

I have seen many on social media take pride in bragging that that have eliminated all friends of the "wrong party" All this does is create an "echo chamber" & almost nothing they post now is ever challenged,everyone agrees, but the social media algorithms pick up on this, so your news feed contains NOTHING but what it thinks you want to see, further creating an almost inescapable "echo chamber" Therefore your beliefs, even if they are 100% absolutely wrong are reinforced as being correct, this is so DANGEROUS if we have a public living in what amounts to mass delusion!

Going back to what Washington said about “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge" was so prophetic as the party in power now is trying to punish the former leader of the "other" party, even trying to not let Americans even vote for him by removing him from the ballot! And that former leader is actually calling his campaign the REVENGE campaign,telling his supporters not to just see him as a candidate but as "your retribution." he also said on Hugh Hewitts radio show that he called into that "I would be entitled to a revenge tour if you want to know the truth" end quote.. Which reminds of what Paul said, which is Scripture "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head."

Speaking of Christians of which I am one, many seem to have their belief system upside down "Party member 1st! Christian 2nd & our country 3rd. But if you're truly a Christian, your faith in Jesus should be the #1 thing you are most loyal to, damn all politics.

Speaking of politics, today Everything is politicized, sports, movies, music & on & on, there is almost no escape from it, which even further tightens that "echo chamber" many find themselves living in.

I personally take great pride in having friends of ALL political beliefs. IN may life I have learned & gained far greater knowledge from talking & debating with someone who disagrees with me, it makes me research my position even more! I wish everyone would try it sometime, you might be surprised, & I promise you won't melt from talking to people who have different thoughts & beliefs, it used t be the American way, its a big part of how we survived for as long as we have.

Finally I started off by saying that there was something that terrifies me concerning the future of our great country, & that is, if we keep going down this road, we seriously could have another civil war. You know brother killing brother..God forbid!
Be strong, be of good courage, God bless America & long live the republic. .

There wasn't a Communist Party (DNC) in 1787. So either you fight them or they steamroll over everything at all costs. But in actuality, they've pretty much already won. If 2 out of 5 in America actually believe in that horseshit, it's over. Can't have a prosperous nation on those terms. It's over.

Looking at the responses it becomes evident that people have become mentally lazy and are no longer reasonable.
