We live in a time in which there are problems to be solved, but our politicians only want to use problems as leverage against their opponent. The Trump administration’s reactions to COVID are one example, and the Democrat’s lack of action on abortion since Roe v. Wade is another. Gun violence is another example. People who disagree on many things can work together when they both agree to work toward solving problems, this is when compromise becomes real. Until we rediscover the difference between governing and running for office, our government will continue to be disfunctional.
