The United States of America has long been synonymous with freedom and equality. A strong sense of patriotism has been at the core for centuries, but when political parties begin to war, a civil unrest is bred. A civil unrest that is fueled by hate and fearmongering from both sides — hyperpartisanship is dangerous and leads to unmitigated disaster.
In all debate, it is important to go in with the mindset that you are not intrinsically correct. That every human has a margin of error and that for years doctors prescribed cigarettes (in other words, we all have our lapses in what will one day be deemed as correct ideology). When one or both parties involved enter a discussion believing wholeheartedly that their approach is infallible, it is not only dangerous but ignorant.
