Respice, Adspice, Prospice
The productive legislative period of Obama’s presidency is over.
Larry J. Sabato, Director, University Of Virginia’s Center For Politics, writing on 4 November 2010
The productive class is taxed and exploited to sustain a growing dependent class. Factions are pitted against each other; groups vie for handouts at the expense of their fellow citizens. The bonds of economic union and national solidarity slowly dissolve.
The bitter debate over Obamacare has exposed the country's profound divisions. We are no longer one nation or one people. Rather, there are now two Americas: one conservative, the other liberal. Increasingly, we no longer just disagree but we despise each other.
Jeffrey T. Kuhner, President, The Edmund Burke Institute
