THOUGHTS FROM AN INDEPENDENT: Fans in the red section on right side: Fans in the blue section on the left side: *We are always right, they are always wrong. *We are the good guys, they are bad guys. *Only we are real Americans, the other guy's are not. *Our media outlets tell us what only we want to hear, everything else is "fake news" *The new golden rule: Compromise is a sign of weakness! The stories, the scores, the scandals, the winners and losers. It's such good sport. -and while the fans cheer and yell for their teams, gridlock grips the government. The national debt rises, the infrastructure crumbles, laws don't get passed, and a national divide not seen since the days of the civil war grows deeper. "A house divided against itself will not stand"
