What bothers me, and has done for years is the division it is causing in American society. That and it reduces political debate to "us and them" rather than focussing on the issues

In other words we accept ALL politicians have the potential to be crooked and work from there - that means we don't really align fully with any party. I think some of this has come out of mandatory voting - we are a nation of swinging voters and therefore you get a lot more focus on issues rather than parties and a lot lot less focussing on the followers of a particular ideology than on the ideology itself
The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.
