Only One Political Party Needed

People say there is two sides to everything, but should there be two sides to the way that we choose to run our country? How about maintaining one stable way to go about political situations and having the whole country work together in politics?
Instead we have broken up America into two political parties that continuously bark and bite at each other. These two sides are almost putting America at war with itself. It’s like the Civil War again just about political values instead of slavery. If politicians were to put there differences aside and come to an agreement on how to run a country, we Americans would be a lot better off.
People with strong and opposite political views constantly fight with each other at family gatherings, social events, and even at school. These ongoing disagreements bring a lot of negative feelings towards each other to the point where one family member could hate the other. If politics are separating families you know there’s a problem.
There have been riots in cities where people have been injured and public property has been destroyed just because of choosing one political party over the other. Putting an end to this whole political battle would stop Americans from being at political war with each other and help us focus on real problems within our country and all over the world. We Americans could provide tremendous amounts of love and care to the whole world if we were to agree on one political party that steadily ran our country no questions asked.
Instead of wasting time arguing about things that should or should not happen within our country, we could be using that time working with other countries around the world that are in poverty and in danger of revolutions. If America were to set an example for other countries on how to govern themselves, many countries would take stand and try to be more like America.
Political parties usually fight over how they can get more money. Candidates will say and support anything that will give them more money and power. When hundreds of candidates do this, maybe only half of them are speaking what they truly believe in. Having a political party that’s focused on the good of citizens, instead of just money and economics then there would be a lot less arguing and that’s exactly what we need.
