Change Political Talk

It has been reported that an increasing number of Americans are disgusted by the behavior of many of our political figures. Include me in the group of outraged Americans who want to change the temperature of Political Talk. I propose that we all make an effort to eliminate the environment of constant insults levied by each political party against the other. I propose instead that we acknowledge that irrespective of political views, political opponents are often very good at identifying problems even while disputing the validity of opposing views on solutions. The place to start is by having an open exchange of ideas to first determine what problems need addressing. Then, a civil debate can ensue where respectfully proposed solutions are brought forward. In my view, this method is more likely to produce results than the overly combative environment we find perpetuated today. A little more listening is what each politician needs to do.
