...a time when it's not us against them; right vs left; liberals vs conservatives; Dems vs Repbs; etc...?
Can you imagine being at work & needing to hash out a budget for a project & it being handled the way politics are? One side of the table screaming across to the other, back & forth?
How about instead imagining we could handle politics in the way we handle round table discussions. As an open exchange of ideas to be discussed; weighed; accepted or discarded...instead of the immediate "well my guy presented it so it must be right" mentality I see so often displayed.
Can you imagine a time where there will be an issue at hand & instead of immediately 'detesting' the opposition we take turns listening & considering the possibility before replying with a productive response?
I get that we're women & some cattiness is inherent; but can we try to at least wait til it is warranted? Maybe?

I think this is a multi-partisan nation and bills and laws need to be represented as such.
I think we need to ask WHO are they REALLY working for? How many can say their politician is working FOR them and NOT for a special interest/lobbyist. We need to end political/corporate corruption. Both Sides. Halliburton. GE. They are the ones writing the laws. It'sickening.
I will say, I support fiscally conservative principles. Which tend to be on the right. So, I tend to gravitate to the right based on my Fundamental Beliefs of the limited involvement Federal Government should have in our lives and our paychecks..
