I am tired of partisan bickering. It appears everybody has echoed the GOP and Democrat line of thought on health care and other issues, but no one is going to do anything about it. Just like with the impeachment, it appears to me to be hot air on both sides of the aisle.

That is why I am fed up with both parties and really done with all of this. With the Democrats kicking out pro-life people like me, and the Republicans kicking out those who disagree with the president, I have nowhere to go. Both parties are only listening to the fringe.

Maybe it’s time that the silent middle wakes up and sends both parties to the dumpster. Or maybe it’s time that people like me realize America is not our home and it is lost to totalitarian minds on the right and left? America, I fear, is heading to its funeral, but people are too busy yelling at each other to mourn her passing.
