'i think that's where we went wrong as a country. we were afraid to really fight each other, and so we devolved into this Bipartisan thing and this ARA thing. when we lost touch with how much we really hate each other, we also lost the responsibility for our common future. i think when the dust settles and the Bipartisans are history that's how we're going to live, as small units who don't agree. i don't know what we'll call it, political parties, military councils, city-states, but that's how it's going to be and we're not going to screw it up this time. it'll be like 1776 all over again.'
