With our US political system and so many views of the world its no wonder everyone's getting confused and seeing things differently. Take the shape of the world -- most think its round, some think oval, and in the case of the Tea Party, flat.
The Republicans say the Democrats refuse to negotiate or over the government shutdown. Democrats say they already compromised by accepting the sequester budget numbers.
The Republicans say Obama is trying to take their guns away. Obama has pushed for gun regulations. Seems those views are diametrically polar.
Many Republicans think the Affordable Care Act is taking our health care into the world of socialized medicine. It's going to cause our country to go bankrupt. Democrats point out that not one country with socialized medicine has gone bankrupt over healthcare.
So, no matter how clearly things seem to one group of people, they seem diametrically opposed to others. Who's right and who's wrong? The answer is perspective.
Here's a quick fun perspective on our world -- called 42 Amazing Maps. It's entertaining and enlightening. You'll find different ways of looking at the same thing -- and yes, it even deals with those who think the world if flat. See GOP, this video's creators consider even the most narrow-minded, creationist ways of thinking to allow everyone to make up their own minds, not refute science, but to see it in maps.
