The founding fathers are long gone and the world is very different. There's no hope for reconciliation so you know where this is all heading.Frank, chill. NOW.
The USA is made up of all kinds of people. You are targeting and denigrating Republicans, predicting doom and gloom for them, and almost salivating over something or another based on Democrat rule. Which indicates to me that you are part of the problem, not part of the solution. You don't appear to want to try to see the other side of the argument.
The original intent of the USA was to force compromise precisely because the founding fathers understood that the new country's demographics were absolutely not uniform. They intentionally made it harder for a particular demographic to trample the rights of those in the other kinds of demographic groups.
YOU, on the other hand, take great glee in talking about Democrats being in power now. As though that made one iota of difference, long term. Just remember, when you guys undo what Trump did, four years later the Republicans can undo what Joe did. And that is because there is this vitriolic competition, brought about by the idea that sharing isn't good enough any more... you want it ALL and damned be those who oppose you. The word "compromise" seems to no longer be politically correct.
About 140 years ago, a similar situation (very different in detail but identical in overall concept) came up and it led to a civil war with a real shooting match going on. It was about two sides of an intractable debate. OK, it was a WRONG-HEADED debate because slavery was wrong, so the parallel isn't perfect. But the concept of unalterably opposed sides leading to actual war isn't so far-fetched.
Let's be clear. If you ain't Robin Hood then robbing from the rich and giving to the poor will eventually get you hung or worse. And yet that is exactly what Democrats want to do.
