Maybe we should pay less

Maybe we should pay less attention to partisan (tribal or football team mentality) politics and more to actual issues which is what politics should be about anyway. Every developed nation has a rural vs.urban & suburban divide. If it wasn't for our constitution and the Electoral College, sparsely populated areas would always be subjected to the cultural & lifestyle urban/suburban majority vote. The system is broken. The only true bi-partisan cooperation we see is in redistricting "safe" districts, (gerrymandering) keeping a 3rd party out and doubling-down on failed well-worn ideologies and familiar stereotypes instead of adapting using effective, common sense, applied thought.
