Often the ravages of aging bring about positive results. Take for example Bill Clinton. His coronary artery disease, for example has likely disabled one part of him sufficiently to divert blood supply to his brain. This has allowed some flashes of lucidity, so the Bill Clinton has noticed what the other side has been up to for a long time.
In a recent speech to the National Governors’ Association, Bill Clinton noted that Americans are becoming increasingly polarized to the extent that they wish not to live with people vehemently opposed to their own ideology.
Of the primary race with Mrs Clinton and Obama as candidates: “This achievement was overshadowed by a growing distance between Americans, said Clinton.”
“Underneath this apparent accommodation to our diversity, we are in fact hunkering down in communities of like-mindedness, and it affects our ability to manage difference,” Clinton said.
Clinton developed his 44-minute speech from themes he said he drew from a new book, “The Big Sort,” by Bill Bishop.” —- Fox News, Sat, July 12.
Yep, a Liberal wakes up and smells the coffee. Any Conservative who mingles with the other side knows that one wouldn’t enjoy living with people who have no respect for the Natural Law. Who needs the added trouble? It’s easier to not always have to watch one’s back in private life and social circumstances.
With the increasing polarization there will be alterations in the flow of economic resources. My guess is that the conservatives will survive and succeed.
