I’m going to let the question stand on its own. Every time I start to write something to accompany this; I think I taint it with a prejudice that tries to influence a response that I think I want to hear. I’d be interested in un-influenced responses.

    In the sense that we all follow/believe in the constitution and the bill of rights. The states have their own set of laws that make us different from each other, but we all follow federal laws…so in that sense we are united.

    We were totally united after 9/11, but then I noticed after one week, blind patriotism set in. You were called unpatriotic if you questioned the actions of our government, and a huge divide began. Not much has changed.

    We are truly united when we agree to allow for differing opinions. That is a fine line to walk on and not fall. But isn’t that what freedom means?

      @Gina I pondered and realize there will always be a divide. It’s how decisive we let ourselves get. That fine line.

      @Gina interesting point. Connection through the freedom to differentiate. I suppose the greatest challenge is to do that and still find consensus.

      I think many of us viewed that the US had the capacity to agree to disagree well in hand, but it seems that rather than meeting in the middle, there is a trend to retreat towards the issues that separate.

      We have similar regional challenges which we might actually ignore, rather than find common ground, but I think all the regions figure we’re better together than apart.

    We’re united by tv sports and tv politics,…. why does that sound correct and so wrong at the same time?

    We’re United by our Divisions!!!!!
