In Maine, everybody appears to be divided, and that’s true. Nevertheless it’s not as true because it appears in everybody’s eyes. Some the reason why People could possibly be divided are gun rights, LGBTQ+ and financial struggles.

Gun rights are an enormous discuss throughout the U.S. proper now, particularly with all of the shootings we’ve had this 12 months. There are individuals who assume it’s not the gun, it’s the particular person. However there’s others who assume it’s the gun, not the particular person. Everybody may argue one thing completely different in regards to the subject of weapons. Both individuals like them or they don’t.

LGBTQ+ rights have been a difficulty occurring all through America for some time and I feel everybody has completely different opinions on the topic. The residents who’re a part of the neighborhood clearly assist one another and every thing that they stand for, however that’s not all of the residents of America. There are individuals who despise them, who completely can’t stand them and who need them damage.
