[H]ostility can only grow between liberals and conservatives, haves and have-nots, public and private workers, taxpayers and recipients. We wish Mr. Romney luck, but he’ll have his hands full merely trying to keep blood from running in the streets, never mind returning America to prosperity.

Liberal/Conservative Divide Only Grows Uglier
[I think there is more than a little truth in this statement even if the assumption of a Romney victory was incorrect. With the Obama victory I don’t see prosperity being an option but blood running in the streets will probably be postponed for a few years. The thing is that I see the blood running deeper when it does start running as I suspect it must when the looters run out of places to loot.
Also mentioned in the post (in reference to this article):
It seems the matchmaking business has declined in recent years because clients seeking mates are increasingly putting political compatibility at the top of their lists. “In this neck-and-neck, ideologically fraught election season, politically active singles won’t cross party lines,” the Journal noted. “The result is a dating desert populated by reds and blues who refuse to make purple.” So much for romance these days.
I can’t say how things were 10 years ago or even 10 months ago but when I was doing the online dating thing a couple months ago I saw similar signs. There were many woman who explicated said they were conservative/liberal and wanted to find someone compatible.
Although I do hear talk these days of violence being a viable means of resolving the political differences the talk seems to be less serious than it did in the late 1990s. But it could be that it I was, and am, just more in touch with the gun rights community than with the liberals who seem to be doing most of the talking these days. In the late 1990s gun rights were under severe attack and there are now times it could be claimed that liberalism is being threatened.—Joe]
