To the point they no longer can relate to one another on much of anything. Colleges have taken over the culture on the coasts with secular indoctrination.

The ballot box has become not a place where differences are settled but where they are solidified. Especially in narrow elections which most of ours are. The losing side has increasingly no incentive to accept the results as the results go increasingly against virtually everything they believe in.

This is why when Trump is re elected there will be a shit storm the likes of hasn't been seen since 1860. Personally I believe it's time to divide this continent up amicably and let these two populations live their own way in peace before it's too late. Each of us can make a choice. Of course that won't/can't happen. No it's going to have to be settled the good old fashioned human way. The shooting will start and to the victors will go the spoils.
too few people have too many resources.. and they are flaunting their cake....

history shows when the economic balance benefits to few the situation will rectify one way or the other..

capitalism is broken... all the spokes on the wheel have downsides when taken to far...

our spokes are farther apart than they have ever been in this country.. we need to come back to the axle.. the shit that really matters

With a centrist point of view that parts of capitalism are good but must be reigned in or it turns into fascist oligarchy..

socialism in and of itself does a great good but when taken to far turns into tyrannical dictators...

Balance Matters.....


The Truth: If you have a stroke the gear don't matter... If you don't have a stroke the gear won't help..
