"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Blacks commit murder at a rate of over 7 times the rate by whites.

"Animus" is a pretty mild word, for the justifiable reaction by some whites, to FACTS like that.

Then we get black out of wedlock childbirth rates, and the resulting negative outcomes and social, fiscal coast.

All taken together, Obama and Holder should have been apologizing to the nation for  being such a burden, even after all the spending, preferences, etc.

At least one of my ancestors gave up his eyesight, to free them from slavery. I know we all pay the other, ongoing costs, too many decades later.

We elect a black President. Yet they call us racist, instead of saying thanks.

Liberia was the better option, in retrospect. Congress could have enacted a temporary subsidy to their African homeland, with a phase-out, sundown provision.
