I am so, utterly tired of of the East Coast Liberal/ Heartland Conservative, Red State/Blue State garbage that our media is feeding to us. Did it ever occur to you that all the noise about gay marriage, abortion, the war, and all the rest, is just a big distraction from the real problems facing ordinary mortal Americans?
The average price of a house in America is about 175,000 dollars. The Median Household Income for Americans is around 40 grand, which will buy you about 123,000 dollars worth of house. Either incomes need to go up, or house prices need to fall for the average family to afford the average house. THAT is a real problem affecting average Americans, and neither party is talking about it.
