Charles, you have written a lot of really good columns, but this is a GREAT column. Thanks.
John--I generally like and agree with your columns, but take some exception with your description of America as a "Christian Nation." I am Jewish, born in America of American parents. I served in the Navy for 22 years. Am I not a part of America? America is a nation where over 90% of the population is Christian, but please remember that the First Amendment starts by prohibiting "an establishment of religion", that is an "official" religion for the US.
I spent 22 years in the Navy, and was in fact a drunken sailor on more than a few instances. I thus "know it when I see it" in terms of how the federal government would spend any additional revenue. I'm at the point where I think we should consider giving in on tax hikes. Let unemployment rise, overall revenue fall, and another recession hit. Like an alcoholic needing to hit bottom before starting recovery, that may be the only way to wake up a nation wallowing in Obama adulation.
