I have no faith no faith in politics of politicians. Like you what was said the OP, it's not about working together, it's about one side winning over the other now.
Vail mentions it all the time: If Obama is president, then large business owners will continue to not invest and spend their money.
That says all i need to know about Republicans, and All i need to know about Politics in general.
It's not about making the country better. It's about getting what THEY want and making more money.
