Google's co-founder Sergey Brin has attacked bipartisanship in US politics with a short Google+ post on the day America heads to the polls
In case you hadn't heard, there's a rather big event happening over in the US this evening, and now Sergey Brin has offered his two cents on the current state of American politics.
"No matter what the outcome, our government will still be a giant bonfire of partisanship," said Brin in a Google+ post.
"It is ironic since whenever I have met with our elected officials they are invariably thoughtful, well-meaning people. And yet collectively 90% of their effort seems to be focused on how to stick it to the other party."
Brin's post has racked up 207 comments and 273 reshares at time of writing.
He goes on to plead that the winners of tonight's election withdraw from their political parties and focus on governing the country as independents.
This election race between President Obama and Mitt Romney is poised to go down to the wire and both parties have been campaigning hard over the last few days to try and win over the "swing states".
However, it seems more than unlikely the USA will do away with bipartisanship politics given the history and ideology of the country.
And with the increasing divisions and lawsuits appearing in the tech community, is Brin in a strong position to suggest the collective solution? Let us know in the comments box below whether you agree or not.
Either way, you can watch the events of the US Election unfold live tonight from 11.35pm on BBC 1.
