My point is that problems are something to be solved, not defeated.

I agree, problems need to be solved. But we have had some problems with us in what seems like forever. Why, they are too useful as a campaign tool to fire up a party's base than to be solved. If they're solved, they ceased to be a campaign issue.

Now most problems will take more or less a bipartisan approach toward them. Usually, one party can't solve the problem on its own. When one party tries the lone approach, they's usually kickback that that party gets blamed for what ever went wrong, ala 1994 and 2010. No approach or solution legislative wise will be perfect, what's not perfect gets laid at the feet of the lone party which tried to solve the problem.

History shows this over and over.

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.
