Well I have voted since 1972, and you know what. I AM DONE WITH IT.
I can feel the shackles falling from my shoulders as I seek to defend myself.

They have more ways to divide the populace and confuse it than you can shake a stick at, that's for sure my friend.
I agree it's going to take people coming together on the same page to turn the tide and rescue the nation from the widening abyss, but I am not sure how that can happen with the quality of people in leadership positions and the corruption that runs rampant through the system.
I fear the only way we will ever be one at this stage, is our mass incorporation into a thought and speech controlled police state and sadly it is going that way.
I don't really see any difference in policies between Bush and Obama, but I do see how some people will support Obama doing something that they would criticize Bush for, and people who criticize things Obama does that they would have supported Bush in doing.
So I fear it's really just become about personality cults and hero worship and little more, opening the door to who ever is in power just following the corporate mandate and wishlist that the entities who control the infrastructure, banking, oil and food supply want followed.
As long as they have a popular leader who's personality is the key factor, they can more or less force anything on the population and proven over and over that they can and will.
Step number one towards a solution is identifying the problem though.
Thanks for joining in my friend.
