The Know Nothing conflict erupted in huge draft riots during the Civil War and perhaps ended with the election of JFK.

The present conflict has a longer arc. It began with the first slave ships and it will not end until our prison society is a distant memory and poverty is eliminated because it is no longer necessary with a technology that can produce abundance without requiring the subjugation of workers.
America is a bold experiment in moving humanity a bit more to the good side of the spectrum of life.

The know nothings were the forerunners of the neocons and Rove is their Aaron. The Kochs are quintessential know-nothings whose interests are exactly linked to the imperial economy the neocons have sought to protect.

Peirce: Our beliefs may be determined by nothing human, but by some external permanency

The Fixation of Belief: "To satisfy our doubts, therefore, it is necessary that a method should be found by which our beliefs may be determined by nothing human, but by some external permanency -- by something upon which our thinking has no effect...Such is the method of science. Its fundamental hypothesis, restated in more familiar language, is this: There are Real things, whose characters are entirely independent of our opinions about them; those Reals affect our senses according to regular laws, and, though our sensations are as different as are our relations to the objects, yet, by taking advantage of the laws of perception, we can ascertain by reasoning how things really and truly are; and any man, if he have sufficient experience and he reason enough about it, will be led to the one True conclusion"

Replies To Rove PAC Attack Ads On Obama Buyers' Remorse

This space is reserved for the best tweets sent @stephencrose
proposing approaches to the Rove PAC ads
We can beat Rove at his own game 
if we let our inner Monte Python 
go to work on overdrive
and get out the truth

I used to listen to Rush. I still do sometimes. But I'm voting for Obama. This other guy scares the hell out of me.

I didn't vote for Obama. I thought he was all talk. Then I saw what he was up against. And what he was able to achieve. I won't make the same mistake again. 

I'm undecided. The economy has been tough. But then I heard this. I'll be voting for President Obama this time.

People have Obama wrong. He's a frigging Republican. Or what a Republican should be. The other guy is a whacko.

I'm a vet. I am one of the lucky ones. I have a job. The President has fought for me. I don't think the other guy has a clue.

Mitt Romney. He bought his nomination. Now he plans to buy the White House. I don't think my children want that kind of a country.

Sarah Palin Birther | Palin on Trump | Obama's Birth Certificate | Mediaite
: "Sarah Palin was interviewed live today on Fox News' Justice with Judge Jeanine, and was asked to weigh in on the rather sudden addition of Donald Trump's voice to the "Birther movement", as well as the money "The Donald" is devoting to researching the existence of the president's birth certificate. Palin's answer? She noted it wasn't that unthinkable for Trump to be curious about Obama's birth certificate, as it was an issue that has transfixed a sizable segment of the body politic."
