    Does is seem that the US has been divided more in this century than any other? What is the reason?

    It is more than just Democrats versus Republicans!
    How can we still call America, the United States?

    The US is a nation more divided that it has every been. I believe we owe our appreciation to greedy and power-hungry politicians and the entitlement mentality of our upcoming generations.

    As I've stated before, I have never been the conspiracy theory sort but when I turned off the news, closed my Facebook account, and started talking to others about 'real issues,' my attitude changed, I feel happier, and I realize it's ok not to know everything going on - especially things I have no control over.  That says to me there is possibly a darker force at play, putting all the chaos out there, and intentionally stirring the pot.

    Divide and conquer, as they say.

    As for me, I'm putting my head back in the sand for my own sanity.

      The Times old motto was all the news that was fit to print, today has changed because the media doesn't have  a motto about news quality. They go further with, If it bleeds it leads.

      Ignorance as you stated is not only bliss, but is necessary

      They're (elite) getting us ready for a new civil war, so we will implode.  Then the other countries, like vultures, will swarm in and pick at the remains.  Laugh if you want to.

      Amen, Brad!  Come join me in the sand! lol

      Lolita, I won't laugh.  Ten years ago, possibly but today, no.  It's a very real possibility.  Sadly.

      Your first sentence is amazing. Are you aware that the US had a civil war?

    This division has been predicted more than 2 decades ago by authors Neil Howe & Williams Strauss in their groundbreaking book, GENERATIONS, THE HISTORY OF AMERICA'S FUTURE ,1584 TO 2069. Both Howe & Strauss predicted that in the early 21st century, there was to be a wide chasm not only between Democrats & Republicans but between liberals & conservatives.   The Democratic Party is no longer a moderately liberal party but has progressed significantly to the left.  Same goes with the Republican Party.  The Republican Party is going to the right in its outlook, philosophy, & mindset.  Both parties have become more extreme as the 21st century progresses.

    Many liberals have gone far left, even having socialist & communistic leanings.  This explains the support that Obama is receiving.  Also, left leaning liberal philosophies further explain the en masse support for Bernie Sanders who openly espouse leftist philosophies & sociopolitics.   Conversely, conservatives are verging on what one would consider right-wing decades ago.  Conservatives are pining for things less complicated & a return to so-called traditional values. 

    The 21st century is marked by extremism in both liberal & conservative philosophies.  The NEW Democratic & Republican parties aren't the political, moderate parties of our parents' generations since the Baby Boomer gained ascendancy, both parties have become more radical so to speak.
