I am currently sitting on my couch nervously munching on Twizzlers and watching the election results through the fingers over my eyes. In past election years I have chosen to watch results with friends, but this year I want to be alone in my cozy apartment. I haven't really been keeping track of all of the political races- I generally find politics depressing. 2004 was a real heartbreaker and I am still not fully healed.
All day I have been thinking about this strange red state/blue state situation. I have my own strong feeling about the issues that have divided the country, and sometimes it feels like there is no middle ground between me and my red countrymen. I do however understand feeling strongly, even if I don't agree with Republican politics. What I don't understand is how we ended up divided up so evenly. I think that God is laughing at us. He is saying "Heehee, I'll divide them up with incredibly emotional issues, but I will divide them in nearly even numbers. Hee, that will screw with their heads......silly humans."
Why are we divided so strongly, so evenly?
