Why Is Washington So Polarized?

They are not polarized. They are in agreement for the most part that it's them, run by the global elitists, against us. Communism didn't die, it spread quietly around the globe until their numbers were strengthened. They're running just about everything now. Never forget: "All the world's a stage". They've been playing us as they set up the Chess board for checkmate.

People who have been around for a while all seem to agree. Never in living memory has the atmosphere on Capitol Hill and in Washington, D.C., generally been so toxic.

I don’t find this to be true out in the hinterland. The country as a whole is divided politically. But it’s not obviously more divided than it was 50 years ago. The toxicity of politics is a D.C. phenomenon. What’s more, the polarization is worse among the elites. It seems that the more education they have, the more polarized people become.

Why is that?

I have a theory. Any period...
