Everyone seems to blame politicians for are problems but not everyone really understands that “the American people “ voted these people in. These politicians are a direct reflection of their voters. Now how can you fix this problem?

:coffee2:
This is not necessarily true. Politicians lie to the public to get elected and to stay in office. The media, both social and broadcast backs the crooked politicians. The public doesn’t know what’s true or false. The politician should be held accountable for their lies, but now that they prettt much have a lifetime appointment, what do you do?

I say do away with the parties like it use to be years and years ago and make everyone a independent so they have to use their own brain instead of siding with what the party wants.
You'd have to go back more than 2 centuries for no political parties. Despite George Washington's warning to avoid parties, factions have always existed. Federalist and Anti-Federalist were the factions debating ratification of the Constitution. Hamilton and Jefferson factions developed in the first administration. Good or bad, "parties" are never going away. The question is what is the best way to regulate them?

Conservatives need to be as active and vocal as the left on issues that matter. More conservative news outlets need to be created by Conservatives. More social media content needs to be created and run by Conservatives. Conservatives need to be college professors - Etc.
There needs to be news outlets, not conservative or liberal news outlets. just report the facts and leave ones opinion out of it.

By using this thing between my ears. Right now, I just use different sources to cancel each other out and see what is left over.
But you said there needed to be news outlets that were not conservative or liberal. So how do you think that is going to change from what is available right now ?

It won’t change, too many places are driven by ratings, which drives advertising dollars. So we are stuck with the stupid echo chamber mess we have now. With large groups thinking anything the media says is false,

Only way it will change is if people stop watching sources that are partisan.

Well we all knew that already that's what surprised me about your comment about it in the first place.
