Politics is America is all about ideology. Ideology is a political view point. It is the way that a political party views the world and how it is going to remake the world in that view.
Politicians are like preachers. They hold services for the faithful. At the same time they are trying to gain new converts. They promise anything and everything to gain more members/voters. Politicians belong to the church of illusion.
In the United States, there are two main ideologies; Republican and Democrat, or red states and blue states.
The goal of each ideology is to gain control of a level of government. The grand prize is the Presidency of the United States.
It is like winning a sport’s championship. It really does not mean anything. It is for bragging rights.
The presidency should be more than this. It should be about guiding the country through occasional troubles while forging a better nation.
Ideology has no place in the presidency.
