Great series! Thank you!
Yet another attempt to put a wedge between different minded Americans. Cant imagine how far our society could go if propaganda from both sides would stop. Im close to 40 and it hasnt happened yet, so I doubt it ever will. Makes me proud to be an Independent. I would suggest not listening to either side and just try to better yourself. Thats the only way to have a possitive impact on our great country. Oh well........I can dream.
