DIVIDE AND CONQUER: Obama Administration Has Perfected It To An Art Form

To DIVIDE & CONQUER is a strategy in both war and politics that goes back eons. History is full of examples where divide and conquer has resulted in success in the warfare of politics. But never in history has divide and conquer been as successful as what we are experiencing right here and now in the United States.

Under the guise of uniting, this administration, led by the President and his closest confidents and advisors, has elevated Divide and Conquer to new heights. Divisions have always existed but, over the last few years, have grown and/or intensified exponentially.

I list a few:
Conservative vs Liberal;
Left vs Right
Black vs White;
Brown vs Black;
Male vs Female;
Gay vs Straight;
Populace vs Police;
Civilian vs Military;
Muslim vs Christian & Jew;
Federal Govt. vs State & Municipal Govt.;
Children vs Parent;
Student vs Teacher;
Press vs Free Thinkers;
Poor vs Rich;
Atheist vs Theologian
Youth vs Elderly;
Worker vs Management;
Consumer vs Merchant;
Employed vs Welfare recipient;
Government vs Taxpayer;
President vs Congress;
Congress vs People;
Vegetarian vs Omnivore;

And this list grows!

I am certain that I will be admonished for either omitting divisions or for listing one or more that the reader supports. Disparaging another person’s opinion just makes my point.

As Aesop originated many centuries ago: “United we stand; Divided we fall.”

And to quote Lincoln on June 16, 1858: “A house divided against itself cannot stand”.

I charge that seven years ago the person that was granted the label of “The Great Uniter” turned out to be the “Greatest Divider” in world history. The intended division is near completion. The real purpose in “Dividing” is the historic intent of the next step; to conquer. It is past time to Stand United against the multitude of divisions promoted by this Administration lest the CONQUER intent be complete.

We are the United States of America. Do not be a party to changing that.
