Stole this from my bro Matthew Percy:
Attention, facebook politicos! - no matter on which side of the aisle your passion lies - do you really think that you are "right" (on any given issue), implying that half of the country is wrong, stupid, doesn't get it, is missing something, or whatever? Indeed, half of the country disagrees with you, which should signal to you that the issue, whatever it is, is probably much more complex than your status update or silly meme gives it credit for.
Fact is, more or less half the country is Dem, half is Rep, and some in between, and it fluctuates across eras and presidents - and the split is for good reason... there aren't easy answers. You, at your laptop or iphone, aren't solving problems; you're only contributing to the splitting of parties while temporarily feeling good about being smarter or more clever than those across the aisle. This is a call for moderation and, well, common sense. Out.
