As America Splits

There seems to be an obvious split between the vaccinated and the non-vaccinated. It seems so obvious to those that did the right thing and the responsible thing and got the vaccine as soon as they could. America was so thrilled when the vaccine was rushed into production and Trump even bragged about it like he did it himself. It seemed at that time that everyone was on board for the vaccine. There was always a small percentage of people that have always been against vaccines for whatever reasons that they had. Some of their reasons were just based on the fear of something new and unproven. Some of the reasons were totally based on mis-information from something that they read on the internet. There seems to be FDA approval coming soon for a few of the vaccines. Maybe this approval will help those that are fearful to change their minds and get vaccinated. There is a definite split between the Republican folks, that have seen this as a way to push back against the Democrats that are in power. This attitude is so counter productive that it’s almost laughable, if it wasn’t so tragic. Using politics against your own best interests is wrong. This is why I am dead set against having political parties altogether. Humans are TRIBAL by nature and we easily pair off and choose a side to resist or support. Politicians know this and they use it to get us to fight each other. They can easily rally up a crowd and claim the other party is the enemy and pit one against the other. We are all Americans and we should all be working together and not fighting. During WW2, America had the greatest winning spirit that this country ever had. Everyone worked together towards one goal, to win the war. We totally lost that spirit because of our split in party politics. If there was no parties, we would be working together. Humans are programmed, by nature, to be suspicious of strangers and that is why we are racist. We slowly get to know people with connections and acceptance. Every single different ethnic group that emigrated here, was treated suspiciously and treated like the enemy , until we all got to know them. Every different culture has something to contribute and we need to learn to see that. I am blaming all politicians right now for using the pandemic as a campaigning tool. Politicians should never be allowed to comment on health issues as serious as the Covid 19.
