Are we getting close to a civil war? [View all]

I feel the question has to be asked. Our public discourse has become so vile and divisive, our government cannot function due to the divide and it all seems to be red state, blue state, north south in nature. I am from the north and now live in the south, I can tell you it is like night and day and can be very uncomfortable at times. I do not talk politics much with neighbors and coworkers (when I was working), we are afraid to honk at a bad driver, you never know if they are armed and angry.

We need a two party system, it keeps both sides honest, but we need a two party system that works for the good of the country not the good of the Koch brothers, the big banks and the NRA. My Grandfather always said Democracy will die when you have an uneducated electorate are we there?
