My advice to anyone who hears talk of “national unity” is to grab your wallet and run, as fast as you can. There is no reason to expect anything approaching unanimous consensus on anything but a few core issues, most of which are nicely covered in the Constitution. There are not many activist projects “everyone,” or even nearly everyone, energetically supports. Therefore, there aren’t many things a lawful and humble federal government should be doing. How does it make sense to seek, or demand, “unity” from a nation of 300 million diverse people, scattered across dramatically different regions?
And yet, when the invocation of the “nuclear option,” which the Post, Times, and Reid found morally repugnant in 2005, served to benefit them in 2013, they all reversed their positions on cue. What does this tell you about how intellectually and morally corrupt all of these partisans are?
here’s no pretense of logic, legal authority, or anything except pure politics to these decisions.
