I am fed up with partisan politics that only benefit the ruling political elite. Both parties should be working for the good of the country and not for personal gain. The Republicans and Democrats should not be acting like the Hatfields and McCoys. This attitude of drawing a line in the sand is ridiculous.
We see this division in the seating in congress. The Democrats are on one side and the Republicans on the other side. This physical division only makes the division worse.
When people have a dinner party, the table seating is normally man, woman, man woman, etc. This seating is meant to improve the conversation and overall interaction.
The seating in both branches of Congress ought to use the same principle. The seating should be Republican, Democrat, Republican, Democrat, etc. Maybe if they had to sit next to each other, they might just talk to each other, and if they have to talk to each other, maybe they will work in the best interests of the country and not just for their party.
Many family gatherings also have a kid’s table for kids that don’t fit at the adult table. Some of our politicians should probably be restricted to the kid’s table until they can act like adults.
I know making Democrats and Republicans sit by each other is a novel idea, and probably too radical, but worth thinking about. It might even be good for the country.
