    Taste great/less filling. On the other hand, some times you feel like a nut, sometimes you dont.

    I always appreciate an intelligent response that might open an honest dialogue to problems that face our nation. The scary thing is I believe you actually are serious.

    The FACT that the Republican Party is 90% white and based in the Deep South is probably the source of the biggest division. This has allowed all the nuts and extreme positions to become concentrated in one political party.

    Let him die.

    Every man for himself.

    American helping American is socialism.

    It was after the last hurricane that Cantor, the guy who will probably replace John Boehner wanted to withhold disaster relief. This is the Republican Party. No wonder they shit all over Katrina victims. They were already telling us something.

    Then there is the self destruction of the future. Education in Red States is bad enough, but slashing funding for education will simply ensure we will become a banana republic.

    They are fixated on getting the black guy out of the WHITE House. When your reasons are as lame as "he wants everyone to have health care" or "he's a fascist Marxist, boy-king Kenyan Mau Mau" then it's clear it's about race and nothing else.

    When you point these things out, they scream "LIAR!", but we all sit in front of the Internet. We can go listen to their political candidates say these things right out loud and in public.

    "Corporations are people my friend".

    "Gays can be in the military but children can't pray in school".

    Is there a single Republican candidate that hasn't been connected to racism, homophobia, or some other category of ignorant hate?

    And their policies are a joke. Really bad jokes, but still jokes.

    The great divide?

    It's philosophical.

    "What is the POINT of government?"

    Those leaning right believe it is to defend individual rights (as they define that term).

    Those leaning left think it is to provide the PEOPLE with a functional society (as THEY define that term).

    Of course in my opinion both philosophies are right but both philosophies have to accept the fact that sometimes those philosophies are in conflict with each other.

    OFTEN the rights of the individual must be superceded by the rights of the commonweal.

    Pretty much every law in the land, laws that both right and left can agree on completely are STILL violating the rights of the individuals.

    Such is life.

    Complete individualistic FREEDOM isn't possible in society.
