Thoughts On Where We Are, and Where We're Going

It would not be easy.  You would have to assume America great again, able to tax and spend its way to achieve great things.  Conservatives are unwilling to do that theses days.  The red base genuine concerns do oppose the blue base genuine concerns such as your four critical issues.

But that is what it would take, to genuinely listen to both sides, to govern the whole country.

The moneyed elite have managed, primarily through the power of fear mongering, to sell the red base on the idea that the government is their enemy and capitalists are their friends.  Nevermind that this is absurd; it's been highly successful.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.
