- at least like minded enough to follow the same constitution. O:)

The problem that the US has is that about half of the population was (treasonously) convinced that the Constitution is irrelevant (even I heard Obama appointed ambassadors preaching that the US Constitution should be ignored).

I am impressed that we are 27 post into a thread about the "Culture wars"
and have not yet actually talked about, "THE CULTURE WARS"...

I am wondering if I should be the only person on this thread who is engaged
with the topic at hand or if I should respond to the thread as is which is
a "bash the left thread"...ummm, I guess I will do something useful
and like take a nap....back in a few hours...

A country divided, but can it ever be united, or united enough to be a cohesive society at least..?

Maybe in another few decades, after the rich have made more money off the backs and woes of its citizens.

BDS (Biden Derangement Syndrome) has settled in over the Trumptard cucks of the ridiculous right. Kind of weird to see. :lol: Culture War is about all the old fossils have left is to yell at clouds and lament their obsolescence.

It's fascinating to see a thread in which the topic is demonstrated rather than discussed.

Curious that you call it tribalism. What is your definition of tribalism?

As an American patriot, this war is between reality supporters and reality deniers. The left deny reality. The right support reality.


You've asked to define tribalism, then immediately divide the U.S. population into two tribes based on political party. #-o

It's additionally interesting that saying that doesn't change it. 8)

In USA, we now live in two separate nations that will not and cannot reconcile.

I disagree with obsrvr's recent hopes in reconciliation. I do not see any cause or reason for that in the next 50 years. The Communist-Liberal-Left have already proven they have no loyalty to the US Constitution, and that they are willing to commit domestic terrorism, Burning-Looting-Murdering, to gain more power.

Once the American-Conservative-Right fight back, it will turn very ugly.

Authoritarian Socialist vs Democratic Republic.

Let's all count together -

    • Authoritarian Socialist - 1
    • Democratic Republic - 2
I can't seem to get around it - looks like 2 to me. :-?
