Why Has America Become So Divided?

MQTlogoa1500x500 Maybe the better question is; “Can the United States Become More United.”

“We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.”

— Senator John McCain (2018)

“Four reasons the United States doesn’t seem so united anymore” READ ARTICLE  Joe Pierre M.D. from Psychology Today…. Worth the read..

JOETODDSAYS210 Some of “My Friends” both Democrats and Republicans on Facebook  have made very disparaging exaggerated and untrue statements concerning each other. The attack ads for the most recent election gave me the idea I shouldn’t vote for either candidate. I think this “win at all costs mentality” is very divisive for for our country. The article from Psychology Today adds some much needed perspective. Thanks for stopping by and have a Great Day…… (For my own part, I will be more careful about what I post/comment)

I got up today to learn that Trump is now berating the leader of France. Yesterday, I learned that he wants to stop federal monies going into California until they get their forest fires under control with proper forest management, although the fires he spoke of aren't forest fires, they're grass fires. When people support a deranged candidate whose lies-per-day are up to thirty, it can't be business as usual. If he follows through with his promise to put the country in the hole unless we give him his border wall (the one he said that Mexico would pay for), I say let it go in hole. I won't cooperate with these people.
