It is an unfortunate fact these days, that the opinions of the American electorate are tainted or colored by the party they support and objective facts are the real causality. If you support Republicans, they can do no wrong and Democrats are guilty of everything they are accused of and the same goes for Democrats supporters accusing Republicans. You've seen this dynamic over and over or you are willfully ignorant of your own partisanship. But fear not. There is a cure and it isn't all that difficult. Put your opinions aside and deal in provable facts. Your opinions are NOT facts no matter how passionately you believe them. In other words, if you can't back something up with a credible source, you are just spewing your opinions as facts. We have even reached the point where we no longer trust the sources that disagree with our opinions regardless of the validity of the sources in question. We live in an age where opinion is king. I rarely see people dealing in factual realities these days. I'm sure that I have been guilty from time-to-time just like everyone else. In my case, I figure why waste my time on people that will either not read or will dismiss my sources as biased but never counter with their own source that they trust either. An opinion is much, much easier crank out than an exhaustively researched fact. After all, it only takes a few seconds to say what's on your mind. That should inform you that you might be tapping into your own biases and not dealing with factual substantive arguments but that would require self-contemplation and who comes to places like this for self-contemplation? The crux of the problem is that we are living in a double-blind augmented reality. The first blind is the biases of our own opinions. We blind ourselves to everything else but what we already believe. The second blind is what used to be the cure for the first blind, objective, verifiable, sourced facts, but these days they have become another layer of self-deception. The dismissal of valid factual resources further masks the truth in a complex dynamic that hides any and all objective facts. This dynamic is so insidious that any behavior researcher on the planet would get heart palpitations just thinking about it.
