|America's National Debt|
After decades of trying, why haven't the Democrats and Republicans been able to fix America's social and financial problems? There must be a reason.
History tells us, no matter who controls Congress social conditions get worse and the national debt grows. The fact both parties have failed multiple times is a clue as to what is wrong.
One explanation is, most of the time, Congress is divided. Specifically, the House and the Senate are controlled by different parties. Yet, there have been multiple times in which the House and Senate were controlled by the same party, included in 2015. Yet, again, little gets done.
The Democrats and Republicans are neither traitors nor buffoons. They are ineffective because there is a design flaw in America's political system. The design flaw becomes glaring when we examine why a political party is formed, and how it must operate to be effective.
