Never attempt to reason with people who know they are right.
I have been trying to figure out why this presidential election is so different from previous elections.
I have reached the conclusion that due to the extreme polarization of our nation, that the statement above pretty much sums it up. The undecided voters are such a small percentage of the electorate that there is little effort to reach out to them.
In the past, honest dialogue, true debate, and thoughtful discourse could sway voters and carry the day. Today, both parties target the base and hope to get them fired up enough to get more voters to pull the lever or fill in the oval than their opponent.
I hope that we can shake ourselves out of this funk and get back to more of what our great country and greatest democracy ever is all about.
