i understand how you seem to think we are portrayed as a divided nation, but this does not show we arent divided. just because my neighbor helped me
out doesn't mean we see eye to eye. or that we live in harmony. everywhere is divided, my county in Washington (blue state) has just as many blues as
it does red, and let me tell you. it is divided. hell, in honesty there has been talk before of Washington splitting into 2 states (east and west)
because the Easts opinions and views are different then the wests (E: red W: blue) our nation is even worse divided then you think because im sure our
state isnt the only one. this only means bad things, this does not show a positive. Anyone can be friends. but i know friendships can be ruined
because of others opinions. and when it comes to my rights, i will fight any friend that tries to take them away.
This is why we are not as divided as you might think. If you split the state up then what? The county and then the city, then the neighborhood and
perhaps even households? Do you see the illogical reasoning there? This map shows that! We all have common needs and wants yet we are played like we
have vastly different goals and ideals. That the borders of Washington and Idaho are real and ideological when in fact that is not the truth.
Humans by nature have different opinions, none agree 100% on everything and probably never will. The ridiculousness comes from trying to focus on what
separates us, and the myth of a Red State, Blue State when most are a mix right down to local level.
What this says to me is that perhaps we a torn with small differences that are played upon by the 2 party system. That there is common ground as we
live mostly harmoniously together dispute these differences!
Most of us in this country are more moderate with slight leanings and cast our vote accordingly (because of limited choice), instead of far left or
