There are no ‘red’ Americans. There are no ‘blue’ Americans. There are only Americans.

Good Americans have been economically manipulated and purposely pitted against each other. It has come to pass that we find out that Barack, Obama aka Berry ... we are more politically divided than we have ever been since the Civil War

President Obama wants us all fighting another war within the confines of our national boundaries.

Actually I support the idea of having non-partisan districts, where it is based off population numbers and not how the population votes. That would help eliminate a large number of these strongholds on both sides and put more seats up for risk and would require Congress to pay closer attention to their voters.

Bush said he was a uniter and not a divider. And look where that got us.

I'm afraid division is here to stay for a while.

It's not an excuse. It's an acknowledge of reality. If you see a united America under Romney, well, I guess I envy your imagination.

He cant help it that he has to deal with a group of people that are racist and fearful of other people. That use this to disenfranchise and then blame the people they use and oppress for the problems that they created.

That map is mighty wishful thinking, with all that purple and all!
For sure, a lot of Idahoans would vehemently disagree with our state's coloring. We could fit all the elected Democrats in my state into my living room and still have plenty of room to walk around.

And so would Utahans.

Even in Idaho Obama got 36 percent of the vote, or nearly 4 out of 10 Idahoans. You'd have to have a big living room to accomodate 235,000 Idahoans.

Even the hyper-partisan states like Cali are only 60-40; I don't think there was a state where either Obama or McCain got to 2/3rds, DC went 92% for Obama.
