52. Good post. I agree

I watched Current on election night and there's definitely no malice when there is criticism. The problem is this: When the GOP is in control, they get a good chunk of what they want with some Dem cooperation. When Dems are in control they get some of what they want with little GOP cooperation. All told, that means the GOP tends to get more over the years and the country suffers greatly for it. It's why we are in the mess we are in now. We can't reverse course by repeating the same patterns over and over again. The GOP enacts policies that can't be easily undone so forcing Dems in power to compromise means that the spoiled fruits of their policies continue to rot for years. At some point, you've got to throw them all out and start over.
