It seems that every election cycle we are faced with a selection of the “lesser of two evils” when we need to select a candidate for office. People become polarized and revert to their party affiliation – Democrat or Republican. Many of the candidates on either side of the political spectrum have good qualities but we are blinded to those qualities because our party affiliation will not allow us to see the good on the other side. Too bad we can’t combine those qualities into one super candidate.
We need to loose those labels of Republican or Democrat and just search out the best candidate from a pool of qualified people all belonging to one party. We can call them “Demopublicans” or maybe “Repubocrats”. It is a sad commentary on how many voters simply buy into the political stereotypes that have been perpetuated over the years and do not even bother to really listen to the other side.
