There are different ideas concerning the direction America should be headed. Some want to proceed along the path that the President is leading, others fear that path is hurting us and will lead to continued breakdown of our country. These two ideologies represent such opposing beliefs that many compromises would be seen as detrimental to either cause.
Despite the differences in the vision for America, and the consternation that is felt by many, most of the citizens throughout our fifty states celebrate our nations 234th birthday. America, Happy Birthday!
