    We need to come to a common ground. We are all in the same boat so let’s not sink it.

    We are not polarised. Media is polarised. I am yet to see normal people in the real world that are polarised.
    This fear of the other side winning is a trend that only happens online between people who think they are smart.

    America is screwed. Given that people worship the Constitution, it will never be changed to remove minority rule. As the problems of the world get tougher, the 2 parties will get more polarized until it becomes total arnachy. Good job everybody.

    I feel as though Ezra needs to work on expressing his ideas clearly. Trevor had to rephrase Ezra’s words a few times in clarifying response questions just to ensure the viewer (or, perhaps, he) understood things right.

    Ezra is so stiff and flat on this. He’s so much better on radio/podcast

    The reason we are so polarized is because education isn’t seen as “necessary” for 40% of the country! Ignorance has taken the main stage.

    The U.S. started getting hyper polarized in the 90s when Fox went on the air.

    Working with segregationist to segregate means you’re a segregationist. It’s like saying I’m not a lesbian but my girlfriend is.

    Felony president who withheld funds from Ukraine during Russian aggression, paid porn stars, miss used charity funds, violated the emoluments clause! Killed a foreign General on foreign soil without congressional or senate approval! Hides his taxes! Started a failed trade war with China! Criminal senate!!

    Republicants are willing to destroy the country or hold it at a stand still if they are not in power, it’s time to get rid of this party, vote them all out.
