Good Morning Middle America, your King of Simple News is on the air.
This is one of those mornings that even the news isn’t interesting. Obama and McCain continue to trade grade school level insults regarding subjects that don’t matter in the least, while at the same time our country falls further into recession.
I suppose that really is the news, regardless of which of these illustrious gentlemen are elected, we will get more of the same ineffective governance that we have become so fond of and accustomed to.
Or perhaps the most important news, and that having the greatest impact and the least reporting, is that the American people are separating at what appears to be a record rate.
How did our country ever become so divided to begin with? Why isn’t there someone who could run for president, that as whole, we actually liked?
The answer to that question is that it isn’t possible. The division that runs between the proclaimed “Liberals” and “Conservatives” is so deep that there may be no hope of bringing us back together.
The differences in our likes, dislikes, and ideals from one part of the country to another are staggering. How can there be predominant red states and predominant blue states in the same country, without there being massive eventual consequences?
Having differences to the degree that exists between our two major parties creates constant conflict, a sort of civil unrest that never goes away, and that is highly elevated around election time, which is pretty much all of the time.
