    Republicans are dividers, not uniters.

    GOP: “If we cannot have a Republican president, then we will take our marbles and go home! We will never compromise! Ignore the facts! God loves only us.”

    Real “Republicans” and/or “conservatives” have been moved from the threatened list under Reagan, to endangered under “W”, and if Romney had “scored”, extinct.

    This cartoon recognizes that through all of our differences, we are still one nation and because of our differences a great nation.

    What you guys need is a decent alien invasion. Pity Obama can’t fly a fighter-jet…

    Republicans feel left out and ignored. They wish all Americans loved and agreed with them. Further, to be honest, their opponents try to separate them from any group which might otherwise support them. This is easy since their number includes fiscal conservatives, religious conservatives, social conservatives, racists, xenophobes, militarists and a few other groups that somebody is bound to find irritating.

    @DavidHuieGreen

    I have serious difficulty finding fiscal conservatives among Republican legislators.
    -
    They all voted to invade two countries without paying for it. They all voted for both Bush tax cuts, without paying for them. They all voted for Medicare Part D, without paying for it. They even voted for a stimulus under Bush. Without paying for that either.
    -
    They had no problem with the $8 billion Iraq no-bid contract handed over to Halliburton. They become fiscally conservative only to damage Democrats, especially Obama.
    -
    I see plenty of religious conservatives, social conservatives, racists, xenophobes, militarists within Republican ranks, but few, if any, fiscal conservatives.
    -
    Almost 100% of them are fiscally conservative like Paul Ryan, which is to say not at all.

    So true!!! We seem to have forgotten what made this “melting pot” nation so great.

    The “Conservatives” label is on the wrong end.

    It’s interesting that when a thoughtful cartoon about the necessity of uniting our fractured nation appears, liberals can only make insulting comments about the half (48%) of the nation that did not vote for the current president. That’s precisely the mindset that makes understanding this colonial American image so vitally crucial today.

    Probably because they are so used to the insulting comments from people like Ima. America was made great by Compromise yet when a Republican congressman says dems should compromise and do it his way, it makes the other side a bit defensive. It happens from both sides, I know. Both need to get over it and work together but the people who post here that are reactionary Neo-cons have already said they will not do anything to help the country if it is offered by a Dem.

    If uniting the country still results in legislation that further hurts the country, how is that progress? Not to be silly, but Hitler “united” his country. I’m just thinking that somehow we need legislation that allows people to choose their own courses of action. Yes, I know – never gonna happen.

    @DrCanuck – ??? Your response is silly and insulting. Comments like that further divide. I’m simply pointing out that uniting for a cause everyone believe in is fine, but uniting just to feel good is not productive and can is fact cause further division over time.

    @DrCanuck – Not true – The example was to encapsulate the idea that unification by itself is not always a good idea. I simply cited the most obvious example. There are plenty of other examples.
    So, to return to the subject at hand, can we cite ways that each side can move toward unity that we can all live with. And these ideas need to be in the context of each sides guiding ideas – Dems – taxing and forced redistribution of resources, Rebubs, keeping taxes in control and allowing individual freedom. Once again, I am simplifying, but just trying to point out the obvious conflict of goals that hinder unification.
