America Is Two Countries, Not on Speaking Terms

Barry's re-election proves the fact, often stated here, that Barry is not the problem. The problem is the American voter. Barry is merely a symbol. Its not even Barry that worries me, as much as the thought that the same people and mindset that re-elected him will elect his successor. So what is ahead? Barry has put us in worse shape now than when he was first elected. He didn't improve that mess, and there is no reason to believe he will improve what he has now. America now joins the rest of the stagnant 1st world countries with zero upward social and economic mobility. If you don't have it now, folks, neither you nor your children ever will.

Will there be a successor? I have my doubts. and what about the threats by the Shadow POTUS, Valerie Jarrett? She's out for Revenge. It's as if their is a segment of our country who have a veil over their eyes..maybe it's just outright selfishness..Mo Obama fos' We don't really have to blame the illegals we have our own home grown parasites who care only about getting Obama fo's and all the other 'stuff' Obama is gonna gve them. They are no different, a Criminal Class is ruling U.S. and not just the politcal parasites called Demon RATS.

The middle class in successful socialistic countries like Germany, Sweden and Switzerland protects itself through its separate culture, which uses nepotism and quid pro quo to keep its benefits from being dissipated through newcomers. The temporary American experience of auto workers and carpenters being middle class is over. Now it will be reserved for doctors, lawyers, bankers, engineers, and others whose expertise enables them to negotiate for a decent share of the economic pie. But the pie will be getting smaller. We have been borrowing to supplement it at an unsustainable rate. And this is the best outcome i can envisage. There are lots of worse possibilities.

I disagree with your analysis. The unions are now in the saddle in America and we have become an American France, which means little growth, fewer opportunities for jobs and advancement. A majority of American people chose security over freedom in this election and, of course, there is no security in this world and we will lose our freedoms. America is gone and we freedom fighters and the world will suffer as a result!

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...
