    Americans increasingly blame their political rivals for their hardships and show compassion only toward those who share their beliefs.

    Ok, I get that you’re saying we need to unite but you can’t heal a wound without removing the necrotic, bacteria laden tissue first. One side is, literally, doing everything in their power to regulate less, pollute more, and scam people into voting against their best interests.

    One side reacted to Sandy Hook by saying “never again,” while the other side reacted to say “No, we’ll take more of that please.”

      No, its even worse. One side reacted by saying ‘how horrible!’ and offering sympathy and support to the victims, and the other side said ‘it never happened, and all those so-called dead kids were just paid actors!’

      How can you unite anyone when a good chunk of them live in an alternate reality?
