Maybe, maybe not. Bipartisan deals will still stand. Perhaps the days of hyperpartisan politics are nearing an end. Even a few Republicans are wanting to do more these days than owning the Libs.

No they aren't.

I've lost some of my love for Mister Maher however the other week he painted a picture based on a lot of the current reality.
And it scared the crap out of me.

Just another Jewish comedian. They used to control 90% of the comedy in the world...what happened...? They stopped being funny and started being political jokes.

Democrats seem to believe that all Republicans are horrible people who hate America and want it destroyed.

Republicans think Democrats are all horrible people who hate America and want to see it destroyed.

As an independent, I suggest that both are wrong. But if both continue with this hatred and mistrust of each other they may yet TOGETHER destroy America.

LOL, Greger you don't know how right you are.

Voters See Each Other as America’s Enemy

https://www.rasmussenreports.com/pu...voters_see_each_other_as_america_s_enemy


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Gerrymandering war, still even. Democratic controlled Oregon and Nevada along with Republican controlled North Carolina are the three states where gerrymandering was obscene. Ohio became the latest state to finish redistricting bringing the total to 21 states, counting the 6 states with one representative. 126 districts out of the 435 are complete if lawsuits don’t upset the apple cart. There are two lawsuits pending against North Carolina which probably will result in overturning that’s states redistricting map. Virginia and Washington couldn’t come up with new maps, so their respective state supreme courts will draw them. Wisconsin will join those two shortly in having their state supreme court draw the new district maps.

Out of the 126 newly drawn districts, there are 11 competitive, switchable districts. Currently held by 8 Democrats and 3 Republicans.

Gerrymandering war, it’s the Democrats ahead by 4 thanks to their gerrymandering in Illinois. Oregon and Nevada. North Carolina and Ohio were gerrymandered for the GOP. Washington, Virginia will have their state Supreme Court draw their districts as both failed to meet state required deadlines. Wisconsin will join those two shortly in having Wisconsin’s supreme court draw theirs. 2 lawsuits have been filed against North Carolina’s redistricting, more lawsuits are expected in Illinois and probably Ohio. These are the most obscene gerrymandered states.

Illinois, Massachusetts and Oklahoma have become the latest states to finish redistricting bringing the total to 24 states, counting the 6 states with one representative. 157 districts out of the 435 are completed.

Out of the 157 newly drawn districts, there are 12 competitive, switchable districts. Currently held by 9 Democrats and 3 Republicans.
