America Is Two Countries, Not on Speaking Terms

Divorce? Civil war?!? Try sore losers looking for the perfect excuse. Yes, we are a heavily divided nation, but this is not 1860. If all the states that seceded, Lincoln appeared on the ballot only in Virginia. Where is the state now that is in such position? So the election didn’t go the way we wanted. That doesn’t mean we take by force what is not rightfully ours. Too many of the comments I read here are nothing more than expressions of fear and faithlessness. America is and will continue to be the greatest nation on Earth and there is no place I’d rather live. We will endure and prosper in the long run. If there is a division we must face now, it is within the GOP. Our loss was foreshadowed in the Primaries.

Yes Marc, I know. Tell you what. You gather up all the guns, ammunition and supplies you can. The either head into the hill build a secret bunker in your home or dig a very deep hole; and then you tuck away until all heck breaks out. Then you can emerge and save the nation. But remember, stay hunkered down until then and don’t come out for anything else.

sorry, meant :In all the states.......

You know who won the election (or whether we face another Florida 2000), and as I write I don't.

But whether Barack Obama is re-elected to a second term or Mitt Romney is elected the 45th president, the contours of their support during this fiercely fought campaign show that we live in Two Americas.

The culturally cohesive America of the 1950s that some of us remember, usually glossing over racial segregation and the civil rights movement, is no longer with us and hasn't been for some time.

That was an America of universal media, in which everyone watched one of three...
