"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

OPapaDoc got elected by promising to be a uniter, but once in office he became the most divisive president in history.  He taunts his political enemies and intentionally promotes an "us against them" mentality with his supporters.  He is the first president in my lifetime who does not even pretend to represent all Americans.

I think the more interesting question is about white America.  Having elected and re-elected the first black president, will Anglo-Americans now feel the country's "original sin" of slavery has been washed clean and finally demand an end to all race-based discrimination in this country? 

OPapaDoc's election may have been worth it if means the end of affirmative action, quotas and the like.

His view is after the race wars, a caliphate where everyone is a muslim or they die.  Easy, no more race war.
