It pains me strongly the profound division that affects our western democracies.
Now Obama had his law on health reform passed. But at what price!
I do not enter in the merit of the thing. From what I read on the newspaper I trust, it isn't a radical thing, on the contrary, it is rather moderate, to the point, it suggests, that it could have won a bipartisan consensus. Instead, it was passed without a single republican vote. And it left the country more polarized than ever.
Why to do it this way?
All of Obama's talk in electoral campaign about wanting to reconcile the country revealed itself just hot air.
Is it possible, I ask, that our democracies have to be some sort of creeping civil war among at least two opposing factions?
