Admit it. Republicans have broken politics.
Okay, just hear me out. I know it looks like I'm a left-leaning asshole pointing fingers, but I think some Republicans will even find this interesting. Growing up in Wyoming, a lot of my friends were and still are Republicans. Some that I've talked to have felt a little blindsided by the party's decisions lately. There's a reason for that feeling. When you look at the center of the political spectrum, the Republican party has moved faster towards the extreme over the last few years. This trend is called "asymmetrical polarization."
This has made it nearly impossible for Congress to work the way it's supposed to. As Republicans become more ideological, they've become less willing to work with Democrats. This is something no one wants to bring up because, well, you sound like a left-leaning asshole point fingers.
