I got an email today encouraging sending a gift set from a Red State to a Blue State.
This nation is (or should be) trying to overcome divides like this. While a "bridge" promotion sounds all nice in theory, it simply propagates the idea of Red States of America and Blue States of America.
As someone I admire pointed out, it's time to stop all of that, and remember that we are the UNITED States of America.

Cool looking book! The title alone is a fair amount of revelation. It's written by -- surprise, surprise -- an economist, further deepening my understanding that politics is all about economics and only pretends to be about other things.edkrueger wrote: Myth of the Rational Voter
I always worry that when the two sides of the aisle get along too well together (like in the US) it means they are really pretty much just the same. Real politics is about class struggle and doesn't happen on cordial terms.
