It's no wonder people are pushed to political extremes when the political culture is more about appeasing investors and making short-term profit than serving the people and nation as a whole.

When every single mall parking lot along the highway has homeless/out-of-work folks offering to clean your car windows (or suck your dick) for money, and every single major city has big homeless communities that quite literally litter the streets, you know you live in a shithole third world country. And it doesn't matter which of your two parties has held the reins, the problem hasn't gotten any better. What's the point in being one of the world's most powerful and wealthy countries when you end up rotting from the inside out?
"Both sides" is garbage

Establishment Dems are bad but they are not the same as Repubs and new progressives like Ilhan Omar, AoC, and others are actually pushing for meaningful change

The apathy and the mental dissonance required to view "bad things are the same as worse things" between Dems and Repubs are what the corporate powers are counting on
