The Current State of American Politics

The United States of America was founded on people having the same opinion of Britain, and how it was limiting their freedom. The political scene began as people split in views, each side, or party, had their own idea of what was best for the country. The two major parties, the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans disagreed on many different idea, however they were still able to cooperate together, and work out their differences for the betterment of the country. As time progressed, the parties changed, but emerged two political views, the Liberals and the Conservatives. The opinion of who was better was commonly based on location, as the Liberals were more urban and city populations, while the rural and small suburban populations fell under the conservative supporter group. People began to become more divided, and the parties began to be counter-productive, as they would only allow things that they wanted to happen to happen. It has escalated to a point where opposing parties just will not allow anything to happen on the floor of the congress room. The reliance of anything getting passed is whether the majority was from the party that proposed the bill. The current American political system is based more on differences than similarities, which was not what the original political system was based upon. The system has turned from one of the best, and a role model, to a role model of what NOT to do.
