Nature is about balance, and balance seems to be incredibly lacking in our culture today, particularly in our politics. The yin and yang attraction of opposites works when the parties can benefit from the strengths of the other and still keep their own values.
Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have all the answers to solve the problems that naturally happen in any organization or form of government. Conflict is inevitable, but a little give-and-take and a little less blaming would certainly benefit us all.
My dad, a staunch Democrat, is in a retirement home. His best friend there is a staunch Republican. They are both 90 years old, and have a vibrant relationship because of their differences and interesting exchange of ideas.
