America has a deep, racial divide. Despite having elected a black man to the highest office of the land, the divide gets worse. Some argue that Obama adds to the divide.
The next president will set the course of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) for at least a generation or two.

While conservatives get accused of censorship, it seems to me that in our day, the liberals and what I call “the shock troops of tolerance,” are the real censors.
