I would consider myself an independent because I definitely don't agree with what I've heard the current Republican party is doing, but honestly, it all seems very illogical to me. The place of government is to intervene minimally only when necessary to help the people live productive lives--ie mental health services, job training, healthcare, housing assistance, etc. Outside of that, it should not interfere. It should definitely not concern itself with social or moral issues, like how and where people can worship, who can and can't get married, what God they're allowed to worship, what they're allowed and not allowed to preach or speak about, etc.

Given current events, though, I'm not sure many people agree with me. I asked on another thread why people are disagreeing with conservative/libertarian values, and well, it kind of just devolved into a very heated game of "telephone." In my view, this is the real problem, because if we all trusted each other to make logical decisions we wouldn't assume illogical motives, unless there's a large part of the population that actually agrees that certain groups should have fewer rights, which I think is the fear of people on both the left and right.

I'm not sure I want to know, but if it's not the dumpster fire I fear and most Americans are still sane, what's really going on right now, and what should I read to learn more, if it isn't too depressing?

Edit: Thanks for the productive discussion. If you would be so kind, please don't downvote commenters. It might discourage them from having a discussion. I know I usually delete comments if they get a certain amount of downvotes. The way Reddit works, a certain amount of points are required to join some subreddits, so it's really not to anyone's advantage to lose points.
