Throughout American history, there have been countless examples of individuals who have changed their political views to become more tolerant. In a country as diverse as the United States, it’s crucial for people to be open-minded and willing to learn from others, even if their beliefs differ. Here are just a few examples of Americans who have had a change of heart and became more tolerant:

Qualified immunity is a legal doctrine that protects government officials, including police officers, from being held liable for civil damages if their actions do not clearly violate a person's constitutional rights. The concept of qualified immunity has been heavily criticized in recent years for providing a shield for police officers who engage in misconduct, and it is time for this doctrine to be ended.
Former President Jimmy Carter has entered hospice care, after a long life spent serving his fellow man. Carter was a controversial President, only serving one term before losing a re-election in 1980, but he did not complain about losing. Instead he used the next 42 years to serve humanity.

The national debt of the United States is a topic that has been a concern for many years and with each passing day, the number only continues to grow. The current national debt stands at a staggering $31 trillion and is projected to increase even further in the coming years.

It is the ultimate implementation of #ConsentCulture, because there are 3 branches of government all designed to make sure that no one branch can unilaterally violate your consent. The system is designed to protect the rights of the citizens and prevent the government from becoming tyrannical. The President of the United States is a part of this system and is expected to follow the rules and regulations set up in the Constitution.
