28. When the exploitation of the gospel by the radical right leads to it's
Edited on Wed Mar-30-05 05:58 PM by Donailin
logical conclusion (re:Schiavo) then I think we will need very little to come together. Quite frankly, I dislike being at odds with half the american population. I hate that Rove has successfully divided our country. I, and I think many people, long for the day when we could come together on practical things despite party affiliation. Example: in a normal universe, republicans and democrats can agree that spending money on war and giving tax cuts to rich while driving the national debt to epic proportions is outrageous and must be stopped. Rove has used the wedge issues to distract what's happening, because HE KNOWS that if there weren't any wedge issues to exploit, no one and I mean no one would be taking this sitting down.
