When did each side start hating the other? If you look closely at each party and where they stand, pretty much the only difference in both are on social issues. You know, things like abortion. Is this by design from both parties to hide their true agendas? What is the difference between Democrats and Republicans? And don't say tax and spend versus tax cuts and spending cuts because this isn't the case. Both parties want to tax and spend, both parties want the people dependent on government. If it was about real issues a the direction of the country, this past election would have been about the real issues and not about old white men in women's vaginas or religion.
