This is a post from ten years ago, back when the United States was at a fork in the road. Where are we now? I think that an extreme example of what I was talking about here in 2008 may cause a new generation to rise and finally solve the problem. Let’s see.
George Washington was known primarily for being fearless. When his men had circled around and were accidentally firing on each other, he drew his sabre and rode between the line of rifles, fiercely cutting them down. When he needed a win badly, he risked freezing to death by crossing the Delaware to surprise the Hessians camped in New Jersey.
