As I see divisions in the country and slanderous, ridiculous attacks on both sides, and demonizing of the opponents I was relieved to see this article: http://www.beliefnet.com/story/156/story_15629_1.html. The article attempts to show the beliefs and why they think the way they think of both sides of the issues. For instance the belief that all liberals are anti-religious when that is untrue, and the belief that conservatives are stupid when the more educated people vote conservatively. That article tells why conservatives are mostly pro-life and why liberals want more separation of church and state. Read it for a different view of your opponent and see if you can understand why they vote as they do.
