There’s just a lot more room for political shenanigans to go undetected. And the media that remains is aimed at overstating or even creating conflict in every story to generate ratings.
And Americans also contribute to this mess by their apathy. The current status quo in Congress shouldn’t be tolerated.
But it isn’t easy for the average citizen. They’re busy trying to keep afloat in an economy that has offered more work for less pay. It’s time consuming to be informed and more so to act on that information.
But becoming informed and active is our best option. Other strategies have so far offered very little success or progress.
