    Children of all nations recognize what most adults refuse to see or say.

      I think he meant divided between the political class and the citizens.
      Or dividing the citizens – 47% or so on one side.

      • Of course. My comment was an (I thought obvious) play on “House” and its erstwhile opponent operators who are in fact butthole buddies on the left…I think it’s less of a foundation issue than that the ship of state is listing so much to port because all aboard have run to that side, and it’s just a matter of time until it capsizes and drowns everyone on board. Good.

  • THINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Republican party is afraid to get blamed. You would think they would crave the glory of standing for principle. Remember Cruz filibustering Obamacare. He was not afraid to stand for principle. A life devoid of principle is shabby indeed.

    Correct, Achmed, there’s no foundation to the concepts of the left. Their ideas are built on the sand of ‘but that’s how I want it to be…’.

    One of the basic requirements of preserving a civilization is a “ruling class” which believes that civilization is worth preserving.

    Unfortunately, our “ruling class” hates our civilization worse than the enemy does. partly because they believe they somehow have transcended it and can survive without it, but mostly because it keeps refusing to give them the absolute power they crave.

    As such, they automatically side with anyone else who wishes us ill, because they see such as being “kindred spirits” and potentially exploitable “janissaries”. (Not exactly a new idea, that.)

    This attitude, and its effects, were well summed up over two millennia ago;

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

    Marcus Tullius Cicero
    (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator

    • “A house divided against itself…” and all that comes to mind as well. Along with “Those who ignore history…”, which is why they try so hard not to teach it.

  • Bill

    Sadly so.

    I guess if there’s no foundation under the right either, they just sink straight down….

  • bill3542

    oh look…someone left a tampon sprouting liberal in.

    the little 12th century goat humping savage must be one of obummer’s decendants. a word to the wise.

    it will be your children or grandchildren fighting these pieces of garbage on American soil.

    • NotYetInACamp

      I would rather the fight be now, rather than later.

      Cicero had very good points.

    • B Woodman

      12th century? When did they get so advanced? Last I heard and saw, they where working hard to keep up with the 7th century.

    • nonncom

      If you’re talking to me, at least have the balls to reply to me….I’m no liberal, but the way McConnell, Boehner, McCain and Graham have done the Republican party, the foundation under it may be gone as well….

  • interventor

    Much of the left bases their policies on late 19th and early 20th century theory. There is no maneuver room for results and experience. Whereas, conservatism is based on observation of human interactions and adjusted for same.

  • I ain’t got past my suspicion that Trump is playing an expensive reality game yet, but he does have some big brass balls, and as to foundations we know he’s a helluva builder, so this struck me funny and I found myself thinking, “Stick it to ’em big D!” Note the tone and headline of this AP piece; they just can’t stand it that Donnie won’t dance to their PC tune:
