The Second Civil War

Author Daniel Greenfield delivered a speech recently at a South Carolina Tea Party meeting pointing out that America is in the midst of another civil war. This time the conflict is over whether the American people are going to govern themselves. Or are they going to be governed?

Are we going to have a government of the people, by the people and for the people … or are we going to have a government of elites ruling from the top? The kind of government that most countries have where a few special people decide what’s best for everyone.
