Really curious to hear what others make of this? Have we as a nation completely succumbed to style over substance? Are the symbols we so vehemently adhere to representative of our actual beliefs, or simply a way to appear to believe in something you actually know not much about?

No. 1-1

It aggravates me that Joy Reid says something as stupid as the symbol of Obama is more important than his actual accomplishments. If you were to reverse it onto this president, I would think people would be more "moved" - in one direction or another - by an actual wall than by whatever symbol the wall represents. Symbols: Nazi emblem, Confederate flag. They actually represented something. That said, the "aisle" as a symbol grows more powerful every day.
