15. I see the cultural war too - very clear down here in Texas.
It is extremely frustrating because the division only helps those with something to lose (the very wealthy) - so of course they are the ones funding the "tea parties" and the like to encourage that sort of bickering. They can't afford to have us actually talk about economics and band together against them. There are many more of us than them.
