What is the great divide among US voters?

Some politicians will tell you the divide is about women’s rights, others say it’s about race wars, and still others will tell you it’s all about the stubborn GOP who won’t cooperate with the Democrats in the Senate.  Who’s pushing the rhetoric and whose creative half-truths are creating a divide in the nation?

The economy is ready to go over the cliff, and all MSM can talk about are social issues. What happens when China cuts up our credit card? Do you think they will support our glutenous spending forever? Seriously?

Iran is ready to build a nuclear war head, but we’re concerned with free contraception for women. We don’t care if they are Princeton grads making 100K per year, if they’re female, give them contraceptives.

Social issues matter. The nation’s poor need help, but they also need a leg up more than a sure-fire entitlement check.

More than that, the economic engine needs to start up and people need to get back to work.  Take a look at your own State. How is it doing? Mine is doing very poorly weighed down by the public pensions the State cannot afford to pay.

Some truth exists in all these issues but we need to parse them and understand how one depends upon another. The political spin is on and the nation is more divided than some of us have ever seen it.

Someone forgot to tell Michelle Obama, that her husband is not deity and some of us are still very much in the dark with the spending – especially spending on failed businesses. We’ll have to take a look at them all and see why we thought they were good prospects. We know Solyndra was NOT .
