I'm aware that there are some differences between the left and the right but I have never seen so much hostility between these two groups until I started reading some of these topics and became more familiar with US politics. Is it that bad in America where the left and right cannot seem to agree on most issues? I don't classify myself as either left or right, but I tend to notice the right misinterpret what the left say and just use every opportunity to attack them, even if it is absurd. I rarely see the left behave that way. So how come the hostility between these two groups is so strong in America? Is it a language issue? Are they not understanding each other? Is it religion? I noticed the right wing are usually religious and follow Christianity. Keep in mind I'm not trying to generalise. I'm certain there are reasonable folks from both ends of the political spectrum.
