De-polarization

Red states vs. blue states.
Left vs. right.
Joe the Plumber vs. Joe the CEO.
Pro-America America vs. …what, exactly?

I can’t stand the polarized, and polarizing, rhetoric of political campaigns.  Unfortunately, it’s nothing new.

There are those who disagree, but I believe there are real choices to be made and real differences between the two presidential candidates, though perhaps not as divergent as we might like.  After November 4 there will be only one president-elect for our one nation which remains, at least for the moment, indivisible.  You wouldn’t know it by the way we talk about each other, though, and I find it shameful and disgusting.
