American politics these days, and perhaps European as well, seems to be divided into two entirely separated spheres that have little or no communication between them.

Indeed. The two spheres are the Sphere of Facts and the Sphere of Conservatives.

We all know what the wall is all about, it's about basic racism against Hispanics. No one seems [to be worried] about the majority of illegal aliens who aren't crossing our southern border since they are mostly white.

Edited by Taq, : No reason given.

Here's something to think about. A good stretch of the border between the U.S. And Mexico runs down the middle of the Rio Grande. Where would the wall be built ?

The northern border of Texas.

Every day I wish I was dead, for at least part of the day after reading the news -- or a political thread at EvC. I usually find some reason to prefer to stay alive but it's touch and go these days. And I worry about the deluded people too. If this isn't yet the official End of Days, how far off can it be?

The End of Days has been just around the corner for 1500 years now:

"There is no doubt that the Antichrist has already been born. Firmly established already in his early years, he will, after reaching maturity, achieve supreme power."--Martin of Tours, 400 AD
