I encouraged people to keep the 4th of July spirit alive by looking at each other as Americans before we divide off into Republicans and Democrats. Probably even more critical with a Supreme Court nomination fight ahead.  Many of you agreed with me, some did not.

 Here's what you had to say:

Patricia in Edmond first: "This country is not politically divided, it's (clearly) MORALLY divided! Why is Mr. Ogle so detached from reality?"

Paula responded: "Mr. Ogle is not detached from reality. Yes. The country IS morally divided. You CANNOT legislate morality."

Eric writes: "So let's celebrate the fact that the constitution protects us from totalitarian rule from Trump... I can dig it..."

Jim, with some wise words wrote, "What would be unhealthy is if instead of being divided 50/50, we were divided 80/20...either conservative OR liberal. THAT would be dangerous. Count your blessings America and be kind to each other."

I also mentioned the genius of our Founding Fathers providing checks and balances in the system.

Kay wrote: "Checks and balances? If we had republicans in Congress that had a spine and were not owned by Russia, we would already be out of this mess, and this guy is delusional"

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
