We as a people are so grounded in our beliefs that it is hard to see the other side. Biden supporters have trouble understanding why a Trump supporter thinks the way they do, and Trump supporters feel the same about Biden supporters. These differences between the GOP and the Democrats are apparent, but the splits go even deeper. Small cracks and little differences in opinions create smaller and smaller groups. We continually align ourselves with people who agree with us on every single issue. That is no way to change.
The parties are divided. We are more focused on pushing our own agendas than solving the real problems. Bernie vs. Biden. Trump vs. the old Republicans. We forget that we have a duty to every single American out there. A duty to make sure Americans live a fulfilling life. We cannot affect change when we are fighting the other side of our own party.
Yes, there are times when it is time to stand for your own beliefs. To say no. To stand up. But there is also a time to compromise. To recognize similarities rather than differences. Change is gradual. We need to come together to affect it.
