"Divided We Sit" graphic

A response to "United We Stand." The graphic points out how polarized and politically alienated so many of us feel due to T.V. and other one-way media. It's also about how the lack of public dialogue makes us see the other sides as caricatures (thus the people with political symbols instead of heads).
