The real question is how this will be spun by the progressives, i.e. will people learn a real lesson or not.

"I’ve long had a suspicion that the discomfort the critics have with classical liberalism is really a deep discomfort with the full responsibility for your life that liberalism requires. Tribal, feudal, and collectivized societies make your choices for you — sometimes by explicit conditioning and restrictions, and sometimes simply by not being able to generate the range of possibilities that liberal societies can." ~ Stephen Hicks

"An experiment by a central Illinois community college explains why green energy is such a bust.  Four hundred years after Cervantes penned Don Quixote, fighting windmills seems to make more sense, than the windmills themselves.

Presidential candidates are ambiguous at best about the topic. Is torture going to make a comeback just a few years after the nation recoiled in horror at revelations such as Abu Ghraib and the CIA's vast waterboarding program?
