How will America EVER reconcile the staggering difference between two ideologies?
I have followed politics for many years and have come to some conclusions. It appears to me, and I hope others have conclued the same, that there are two vastly different political and social "ideologies" in America that IMHO cannot ever be reconciled!
On one side we have the progressive "thinkers" and their "beneficiaries" who promote the cause of "government is the saviour/provider" while the other side is very conservatively based, primarily, on what the founders of this nation had for ideas, that mainly we are responsible for ourselves, endowed with certain basic rights, granted by our "creator" as opposed to the "government as protector" of the left. These two ideologies have become spread further and further apart, as time has gone by, and more and more of us have become "beneficiaries" of government largesse, the divide has widened. Some would put it at around 50-50 division of thinking, while others, including me, often, place the "progressives in the lead here.
But no matter what the actual numbers are, there are millions of die hard conservative thinkers, and doers, who want our nation to get back to its roots, and are trying to do anything they can to do just that.
It appears to me that, because of the numbers primarily, that the conservative cause is NOT going to prevail, simply by "voting to do so", as there don't appear to be enough votes to really effect significant change.
I am pretty sure that there is NO compromise position possible, as neither side seems to want to try and "reconcile with those of the opposite point of view.
So just what do we think is going to happen........in the long run?
How might this change for the better?
