It cannot because the reason the factions exist in the first place is due to oversimplification of complex controversial issues. That's why there's a democratic party and a republican party and absolutely no middle ground.
I agree. This is an age to re-introduce nuance. Otherwise, it may be the last.

There's tons of middle ground. It's just that all the funding goes to one party or the other. If you had Super PACs investing in the, I don't know, the "Pizza Party", you'd see a legitimate candidate there too. It's dumb. It would make more sense if running for political office were solely publicly funded and there was a true cap on what you could spend

We treat people better than most animals but we are just animals. Maybe the line should start with all life or not be applied at all.
Do you classify all living creatures as animals? Then no, you won't go to jail for stepping on an ant. You will get the death penalty - because clearly all life is of an exact comparable worth when speaking about extremes. If you want to nitpick you can literally find a problem with everything - even mother nature.
Hey, you're the one who said "all life". That includes ants and even bacteria. Or even...

How about "Death to all solids!"

You sort of just solidified my argument that there's no middle ground. Yes, there is an ACTUAL middle ground I realize that, but when looking at the whole and observing the majority - there are only 2 sides. And you said why that is, it's to do with lobbying and funding. It's a corrupt system that encourages it. Let's say the middle ground is only 5 maybe even 10% of the population. History dictates that there has always been 2 choices so that middle ground technically exists but is known to never exist in a higher form. The ones at the top providing the funding are for one of the TWO major sides which has been occurring for hundreds of years. It's more of a game of "Who can throw the most money around and brainwash the most people" because if you ask people why they chose to vote the way they did, a lot of the answers are vapid or biased - based on feeling rather than actual facts. I literally do not doubt there are people who vote democrat simply because their favorite color is blue or republican because they really like elephants.
