Heh. psydoc, I'm being sarcastic. It never seems to matter anymore what the majority of Americans want. The elections are pretty much a rigged game and the people be damned. Politically powerful minority special interest groups come first.
The remark about the divisions is a take off of what Joseph Stalin remarked when he was told that the Pope would be displeased with a particular policy he was going to implement. He asked, "How many divisions does he have?" In other words, what's he going to do about it?
