Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

If "Conservative values and ideology are the very SAME values and ideology of the Founders," then you favor slavery? From a more reasonable perspective our constitutional system has improved and expanded the rights on which it is based to all people, not just white male property owners. As for JFK, he would be a liberal Democrat, like his brother Teddy.

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...
