superposition Free

Superposition: In any network with 2 or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical/electrical network results in compromise and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." "I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796.

    From TIME magazine: evidently many Americana are satisfied with seemingly “Federalist” interpretation of the Second Amendment.

    “… The current Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment is incompatible with the republican philosophy that underpinned the Constitution and animated the Founders’ thinking. Such a right risked allowing an individual the right to tyranny over one’s fellow Americans—similar to the absolute right a monarch had over his people, and thus the very thing the Founders wanted to prevent.

    When the states debated the Constitution in 1787, they produced a storm of erudition covering every icon and anxiety of the republican mind. Whether the proposed government would deprive individuals of their gun rights was not among them. …"

    It’s amusing — to enemies of democracy — that the electorate in our republic is virtually unrepresented (Congress’ Job Approval Drops to 13%), yet, the political parties and the wealthy can get whatever they want.

    From Wikipedia

    “… There is a strong scientific consensus that the Earth is warming and that this warming is mainly caused by human activities. This consensus is supported by various studies of scientists’ opinions and by position statements of scientific organizations, many of which explicitly agree with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) synthesis reports.

    Nearly all actively publishing climate scientists say humans are causing climate change. Surveys of the scientific literature are another way to measure scientific consensus. A 2019 review of scientific papers found the consensus on the cause of climate change to be at 100%, and a 2021 study concluded that over 99% of scientific papers agree on the human cause of climate change. The small percentage of papers that disagreed with the consensus often contain errors or cannot be replicated. …"

    If the GOP refuses to keep military grade weapons out of the hands of domestic mass murderers — why would they stop an Israeli mad man — that most Israelis don’t like — from his overly vengeful genocide attempt?

    Do the US political parties believe that voters approve/respect/trust any of their [power-seeking] candidates as competent fair-minded problem-solvers for ALL Americans? Have the parties’ propaganda systems distorted voter perceptions so much the voters no longer feel competence/honesty/trust are required?
