The Great Divide

No, not the Continental Divide. The Great Divide I am speaking of is dangerous to our nation.

Over the last 3 years we have seen the current administration divide and parse this nation into segments. We have seen them divide genders, creating a "war on women." We have seen them divide us economically with their war on the wealthy. We have seen them divide us by age, with their MediScare and refusal to even discuss strengthening Social Security or Medicare through reform. We have seen them divide us by race, as the administration jumps to stand up for every minority while refusing to stand up for any victims who may be white (voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers was dismissed by the administration). And we have seen them relentlessly divide us by ideology - all conservatives are evil, while all liberals are annointed.

When we enter the voting booth in November, just ask yourself ONE question before "pulling the lever" - do we need a leader who divides us every which way, in an effort to "divide and conquer", or one who will unite us?

Because until we become united, little else really matters.
