A Divided Nation

The dichotomy in this country is becoming strikingly polar. There's a lot of ignorance and hate out there, and too many people seem to be allowing others to do their thinking for them. Personally, I don't believe most of us understand the seriousness of the problem and where it could lead.

  1. I agree with you Jason. This growing division makes me wonder if America is headed towards it's own "Pussy Riot"

    [In five days of testimony, lawyers and witnesses have laid bare the stark divide that has emerged in Russian society: one deeply conservative and accepting of a state that uses vague laws and bureaucracy to control its citizens, the other liberal bordering on anarchist and beginning to fight against that state with any means it can.]

  2. Even though President Obama won the election, I don't think many people realize that it was a very slim margin, and that this nation remains deeply polar in it's feelings.

    The American public is still around 50/50 in it's opinions about what path this country should take. Personally, I don't see that being a good thing.

  5. fluvoxamine 50 mgcontains Fluvoxamine which has a place with a gathering of prescriptions called specific serotonin reuptake inhibitors. It is utilized to treat wretchedness. The fanatical enthusiastic issue is characterized by intermittent and persistent contemplations, driving forces, or pictures that are monotonous and other purposeful practices that are perceived as unnecessary or unreasonable.
