Seems that we are a nation that is divided right down the middle our political ideology has us divided blue states and red states democrats and republican conservative and liberal. Now we are mired in gridlock and the local and the national level. We seem of late to become almost rabid at times with our ideas to the point of becoming violent. Maybe, we should settle it with a big fight and winner takes all. Maybe, then we can actually get something accomplished and move on. Let's just run into the streets guns a blazing and settle everything at once. Sounds stupid doesn't it! I wonder sometimes if that is the direction we are indeed going.
