    Because I'm hearing it from the fringe-right. This country cannot stand, as divided as it is.

    Of course I don't buy it.

    Of course I don't believe that the majority of the country is the fringe-right or fringe-left.

    Why do you?

    Of course they are..Fox that is. It is the first rule in Murdochs playbook. All war creates wealth. Murdochs war with words creates him wealth. He doesn't care about any outcome. It is just neccesary to Murdochs business model to have war to make him money.

    To today's "mainstream" left, Humphrey was a reactionary.

    I know the left has their own fringe, but it's not the one saying we can't get past this.

    Left vs Right is easy to understand and report so it gets pushed. Sorta like National League vs American League or AFC vs NFC.

    The country is so divided that it really cannot stand. There is no point of compromise.

    The left was no more willing to accept Bush as president than the right is to accept obama. The left will fight just as hard if not harder against Romney. Neither side will tolerate the policies and positions of the other. Right now, control of the country is doing nothing more than bouncing back and forth. One side or the other is angry and resentful, getting more angry and resentful all the time. At some point, enough will be enough and the country will try by ammo box what it could not get by ballot box.

    The left is enamored of its revolution. They romanticize the French Revolution and have Che Guevara as a hero. They are really forcing themselves into a corner where they have no choice but to really engage in the violence they now only dream of. The very young idealogues of the left honestly believe that no one will fight back. They believe that they will be protected while they exercise their freedom to vandalize and have fun in the revolt.
