Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (Can you imagine a USA without political parties?)

Sometimes I get sick of hearing the bickering. Sometimes I wish politics didn’t play such an integral part in the making of our government. Sometimes I wish our political ┬áleaders would make a decision based on the needs of the people rather than the views of their own party. Welcome to the world of political divisiveness. When you abide only with your party you often get delayed stimulus checks, chastising comments, shut down governments and improper judgments. I just happened to hear the latest comment from senator Mitch McConnell to former President Barack Obama criticizing US coronavirus response. McConnell said that Obama was classless and should have kept his mouth shut. Here is the article:

“I think it is a little bit classless, frankly, to critique an administration that comes after you,” McConnell said. This came after Obama labeled President Trump’s handling of this pandemic as an “absolute chaotic disaster.” Mitch didn’t say anything in regards to Trump calling of Obama’s administration as human scum, or his blaming everything that goes wrong on the “previous administration.” ┬áThe problem is with all of us, because when we go to vote we often think of the party at the ballot box. What is wrong with just picking who you think is the best candidate? Unfortunately I don’t think we will ever get to that stage, and things may only get worse from here. Right now I don’t think Republicans and Democrats can agree on much of anything. If McConnell were truly interested in people keeping their mouth’s shut, then he should surely start with all the negative things his President is saying. What do you think would be the chances of that happening? Uh huh. Maybe one day both parties can actually work together for the common good of the people. I feel those days may be long extinct. It should never stop us from dreaming about it, though. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
