Well, yeah, you make a very good point. That polarization keeps getting more and more so, so we’re supposed to be either all the way over THERE…or all the way over HERE…with a HUGE gap in the middle.
Thing is, this really stopped being a Democrat/Republican thing some time ago, but many don’t seem to acknowledge that. It’s about a nut job who doesn’t believe in facts or science, doesn’t care about the effects of what he says. and couldn’t tell the truth to save his life. Could you imagine the founder of Reaganomics, even with all the issues that’s created for us, blatantly lying all the time? I can’t imagine THAT would’ve gone over very well back then. And now, even Dubya’s trying to make a call for unity.
Meanwhile, there was some recent news (you know, some REAL news) that by 2070, just fifty years from now, billions of people will be subjected to nearly unlivable heat. Now, I’ll very likely be long gone by then, but…too bad we’re not globally trying to figure out what to do about that to ensure our continued existence, instead of arguing about conspiracy theories about who’s responsible for the Coronavirus.
I can see some day, when interplanetary travel’s a reality, Earth will be a subject in other planets’ history books about what happens when one doesn’t take care of ones home.
