Response to H2O Man (Original post)

6. "dividing the public, and pitting groups against each other"

A great man once said "A House divided against itself cannot stand." He was speaking about the institution of slavery, but 157 years later his words still apply. A People divided against themselves cannot stand together for their own common interests.

The bitter polarization of the American people is not a natural development based on real conflicts of interest. We have been pitted against each other, on purpose. The socioeconomic interests of the average Teapartier and the average Bernie Sanders voter are much more aligned than either are to the One Percenters who control the mainstream media and most of our government.

Tearing down the artificial wall that divides us is key to fulfilling the true promise of a Constitutional government Of, By, and For The People.
