Not only that, but half the country will be in full agreement with Pzabby, so why not travel to those parts of the country. I understand the desire to draw lines, but the real line to be drawn concerns inequality across the world rather than political parties in one country. What is really problematic about Romney's ideas exists here, and pretty much everywhere else there is to go. Until the majority understands that they are being asked to participate in a rigged system for the benefit of the few, and go beyond voting to demand clearly that their interests need to be served properly regardless of who is elected, then drawing any personal lines means very little. The US as a whole under Obama will be only slightly more moral and ethical than under Romney, and under Romney there will still be a large part of the country that will be trying to garner the critical mass to bring the changes needed.
