My theory on political divide what do you think.?

Never has the country been more divided, however; the country has always been divided. Its not often you see dems and repubs stand hand in hand singing kumbaya.  Now the repubs are saying the left is trying to silence there voice.

Well its not so much that there voices are being silenced its more that there voices are marginalized because there are 2.9 million more people that wanted a democratic president than wanted a republican. 

All things being equal 10 people can scream louder than 8.

    Why don't people understand that a democracy was never meant to be rule by majority? That perversion was added in to corrupt the government. If 10 people want one official and 8 people want the other then BOTH people should be elected. You'd be oppressing 44% of the nation simply because you refuse to compromise.

    Source(s): We used to have it that way, but then they decided that a corrupt government that doesn't share the power was better. Gridlock is part of democracy, you're not supposed to have unlimited power to make the changes you want.

    The Electoral College for US presidential elections is in the USA's constitution exactly to prevent a few corrupt big cities from being able to decide every election. In 1789 they were Boston, Philadelphia, and New York.  Today they are the Boston-NYC-Washington DC corridor (includes Philadelphia) and the San Francisco-Los Angeles-San Diego corridor. 

    You can moan and wail about the Electoral College all you want but it is not going to be abolished.

    Earl R, The United States was way more divided politically with hate filled anger and violence during the Civil War.

    Also during the Vietnam war in the 60s.

    However I do agree with you we are in a period of serous political divide and yes Republican voices are being cherry picked, and misrepresented by the fake news media, deep state politicians and many Hollywood actors.

    All things are not equal when 90% of media including social media is favoring Democrats and either silencing or misrepresenting Republicans.

    We used to have two major political parties that believed in freedom, liberty, and Democracy.

    One of those parties have been taken over by commies who believe in socialism by any means necessary.

    With the collapse of the USSR, named by Reagan the evil empire our young people have been purposely kept ignorant of the human rights abuses that typify that kind of State.

    25% of our young people actually support Communism, not just Socialism but full on Communism.

    Unfortunately for the democrats, the presidential election is comprised of 50 separate state elections. Each state has a voice and most of the states voted for Trump. Why should 5 or 6 states alone determine who the president is? Not all states share the same interests and concerns.

    No, it's that between liberal academia dumbing down our children to believe in socialism/Marxism and the liberal mainstream media telling lies about the President and any other conservative that that the country is divided. fortunately people are waking up to the fact that they can't trust the media to tell them the truth or facts.
