    I think the Internet has spread the division that is perhaps as great now as it was since Vietnam. Vietnam was worse but we are seeing signs of violent protest from the OWS. The president divides the country when the says things like, the police acted stupidly or if I had a son....

    His divisiveness he creates between the rich and the poor is obvious.

    So yes, it is divided. At least one thing Carter did was unite the country against him. This time around the Obamabots are sticking with him for only one reason.

    After seeing Elizabeth Warren and Obama's attack on the business owners in this country
    there can be no doubt.

    Yes. The tactics of diversion, disaster, diversity, class warfare, war on women and Christianity and just traditional values in general, have all pitted one against the other, if the other has kept up with politics or the economy.

    I have let it all interfere with friend and family relationships. We all wish we could take a pill and sleep through the next three months. We would give up three months of reality, for that to happen.

    Pretty damn sad.

    Yes, this country is clearly more Divided today than 4 Years ago.

    A combination of Racist Reaction on the Right, and Divisive Class Warfare Tactics from the Left have made sure of that.

    I won't point the finger any more or less at either side on this issue.

    Although I will Hold Obama Accountable more than others for his part, because he Ran on the Promise not being what he turned out to be.

    Definitely more divided today than four years ago. Probably the most since the Civil War. Partly due to the changing demographics, and much of it due to cable news, and social media.
    I don't believe we are very many ticks away from taking it to the streets.
    We may see some of it after this election.

    As for your question about political differences causing a divorce.
    I lived with a woman for over ten years, she was a lib. At first I was able to deal with it, but after a few years and the newness of the relationship wore off it became very toxic, until I finally had to break it off.
    I thought in time she may eventually come around to my ideological position, but it never happened, and it led to a miserable relationship.

    My advice to anyone beginning a relationship with someone from the other side, unless you can be persuaded to change or the other person can be persuaded to change, your ideological differences will eventually become the elephant in the room and you both will be miserable. I would break it off now before you get too involved.
