In response to:

Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

Agree 100%, but the truth is much darker than you suggest. Romney won 60% of white people. He won the independent vote. He won the Catholic vote. He carried seniors. And he still lost. The clear message is that the underclass is now so big, they get to choose our national leaders. Thus, it really doesn't matter what "good men" do - our sins were in not opposing this sort of thing decades ago, and now there are scant few options anymore.

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
