Many believe there is little difference between liberals and conservatives almost like the two sides of the same coin. Nothing, absolutely nothing could be farther from the truth. The shocking truth is that one actually hates America and would seek to fundamentally change it and eradicate those things that made this country the greatest nation on earth. While the other would embrace those traditions and honor the flag of our fathers. Yes, the gulf between conservatives and liberals is vast and one I fear cannot be bridged.
The Great Compromise of 1850 sought to bridge the differences between North and South, but in the end only delayed the onrushing conflict for some 10 years. Another great conflict is coming to America, not between two regions of the nation, but a conflict between the two contrasting ideas of what America should be. Whether this next struggle will be peaceful or not remains to be seen. However, the raw truth is that in the end only one side will be victorious and the other vanquished.
