While America’s political demographic shifted, the real story is just how purple the country is. Yes, there are large swaths of beet red and centers of dark blue, especially around urban areas; however, the country is divided along ideological lines within counties, cities, towns, and neighborhoods. We are at a point of exasperation with one another and not sure how to even hold a general conversation amongst ourselves that might touch on politics for fear of offending one another or pissing the other person off. While that won’t cause a Civil War anytime soon it certainly loads the powder kegs together. I seriously hope a match isn’t anywhere nearby. The last match that tried to set it off was Oklahoma City where a disgruntled citizen tried to push back against overreaching Federal government, hijacked by "Jack-booted thugs," was stomping the rights of its people.
