Politics has become more divisive than ever before, and while I detest violence, even I can admit something drastic has to happen to save our culture.
This week a poll was released that shows a majority of Americans are afraid that we are on the verge of a civil war, but what is causing these fears?
The 2016 election was one of the ugliest elections in modern politics, and things haven’t gotten better since. That’s causing a lot of people to reflect on the potential fallout when a democrat loses again in 2020.
From The Washington Examiner:
The Civility Poll is an offshoot of the famous bipartisan Battleground Poll conducted by Democratic pollster Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners and Ed Goeas of the Tarrance Group.
While it found that 87% are frustrated with the rudeness in politics today, it also revealed that the public really isn’t interested in traditional compromise. For example, a nearly equal 84% said that they are “tired of leaders compromising [their] values and ideals.”
Essentially, people are fed up with politicians going to D.C. and giving up inches in regards to their values to appease people that didn’t vote for them.
The game totally changes when children are involved. We have a lot of people in this country who think that it’s acceptable to kill babies in the womb. We have people who seem to encourage children to mutilate their bodies, and take hormone blockers, all in the name of “tolerance”.
On top of that, we have a lot of people that are fed up with it, and don’t want to society destroyed by total debauchery. We have people who view a large portion of the population as freeloaders wanting taxpayers to fund their lives.
Ultimately, there’s a lot of resentment in this country, but even the people that conducted the poll will tell you it didn’t start with the president.
“He is a symptom of where we are, not ‘the’ disease,” said Ed Goeas of the Tarrance Group, adding, “One of the things that I have focused on as we have gone into this death spiral of incivility in the country, that we had to be at a certain point for Trump to become acceptable.”
This is a point that I have been trying to get across to my liberal friends for years. Republicans had to be pushed this far to vote for a guy like Trump, but that’s what happened when the left demonized Mitt Romney for having a “binder full” of female candidates for White House positions. Trump is what happens when we demonize a republican for admitting the truth when it comes to “only half the population pays taxes”.
THAT guy caved (as most republicans do), and voters were forced to find a candidate with a spine. Trump is what happens when politicians and talking heads make a mountain out of a molehill. Yet, their heads are so far up their own butts they’d have to clear their throat to fart. They would never admit they contributed to this problem. Instead, they will say something about how “racism” magically showed up again.
There’s no stopping the swinging extremes. Not without something drastic happening. The left and right are going to continue to pull far apart on every issue under the sun. The thing is, will conservative Americans continue to let the America they know be destroyed? Will we see more degeneracy? Will we encourage drag queens to read to kids, or will we encourage normalcy?
Will we keep letting the left push gender BS on our kids, or will we do something?
The word “tolerance” is losing its shine, as it seems to be a one way street. There’s no attempt to tolerate my views.
Unless something changes in our country, our worst fears may come true.
