The deluge of information on all things political has brought me to wonder why the various sides have not seen the need to really listen to each other. This extreme listening could result in better solutions and possibly a better political climate. The sides (right, left, center and the assorted subsets) seem to be saying similar things once you plow through the hype surrounding their issues(?). Alas these are humans and the emotional side takes over the rational mind. What if as stated in one fast food restaurants missions statement, we could have our way? The “our ways” could very well create more “sides” and more division. Instead why not adopt another fast food restaurant’s way of taking what is served as it is designed to be served. This acceptance may not be perfect but we going back for more so how bad is it? The Constitution is a fluid document and it is alive. this means that in the long ago wisdom of the framers they knew that as the years go by and the country grows and progresses the Document has to be able to change as needed to continue as the basis of our Democracy. Currently (if you have been paying attention) some areas of freedom have been usurped purely by huge money with the aid of the highest court in the decision “Citizens United” which¬† as shown here: “Citizens United (organization) … In 2010 the organization won a U.S. Supreme Court case known as Citizens United v. FEC, which struck down as unconstitutional a federal law prohibiting corporations and unions from making expenditures in connection with federal elections.” This allows unlimited spending on political campaigns and to that end politicians have to go along with the donors agenda to get funding for their campaigns. This amounts to a candidate being bought. The solution is a public outcry for the rescinding of the “Citizens United” case and hopefully return the political process back to the people and their parties.
