You guys need to listen to yourselves.
The role of the politician is to divide and conquer. After all, if all politicians said that they were going to treat everyone the same, who would send them money and support?
The goal, as a voter, is to pick a winning side and try to prevail over your counterpart citizen. Sadly, what usually happens is all voters end up losing. Take Obamacare, for example. Some people or organizations got exemptions from the taxes as a reward for their support, but in the end, it was short lived as now everyone is stuck with the same system. Both left and right hate it and want something new and the ink is not even dry on the legislation.
Politicians prey on the half wits in both parties, for which, there is a never ending supply.
What is sad is, both parties are committed to the same things. For example, both parties are committed to unrestricted immigration and open borders, although the GOP says otherwise, their actions show the truth. No wall will be built.
And then there are the poor Dims. They preach against corporate corruption, but at the end of the day, the Dims in power will bail them out at every opportunity because that is who they get their money from.
