  •  Failure of commonweal the result of 40 years.. (0+ / 0-)

    of consistent Republican/conservative rhetoric and relentless assault on any sense of common American destiny.

    It's Reaganism writ large: a constant drumbeat of jingoistic American exceptionalism, perversely chained to foaming rage at the diversity that made America so strong. A freakishly narrow definition of 'real Americans' that splits us into tiny segments. It's the evil twin of Democratic identify politics, and worked hand in glove with it to splinter We, the People into countless little interest groups pulling in opposite directions. Divide and conquer on a national scale.
