Are we suffering from the biggest divide among Americans since the Civil War?

Yes, its by design. We're too busy fighting each other to pay much attention to how our representatives are raping us.

I think we're becoming much more divided because of several things. I'll just jot down 2, firstly, much more illegal immigration (mostly Latino who literally expect others to speak THEIR language), secondly, so much political bashing. Real sad

I'd like to hear from those that said yes why they feel that way.

Why do people bash whichever political party they're for? Why do people bash based on their own personal views, et? It's rather obvious what your feelings are. But why the need to bash? I respect you for YOUR beliefs & have no right to put you down

The media wants you to think so.

No, America was more divided in the 1960s.

The question says "since the Civil War."

Ok, you feel that in the 60's were more divided than say 10 years after the civil war?

No. Only to those who are political, but most of the country is not political.

Yes - all because of the collectivist thought that has infiltrated our society. People need to realize that capitalism is the solution, not the problem, and that extreme economic inequality is not a bad thing in and of itself.

How exactly is extreme economic inequality a potentially positive thing? Extreme economic inequality is a defining characteristic of failed states. It is a dangerously corrosive factor for every society. That's an historically ignorant comment.

I think the divide among the parties is huge but I'm not sure the people are as divided. I think most want stability and confidence that things will get better. The government is giving us neither. Huge divide but not as big as the civil war.

Within the American people no. The American people and the government yes.
