Without Paine, the American Revolution dies stillborn in the hearts and minds of the American colonists, muttering impotently under the heeled boots of the King's army.
America is divided because Americans, on both sides of the aisle, care more about their delusions of "rightness" than they do about their countrymen.

With China instituting 25% tariffs on over one hundred American made products, a trade war with China is no longer a mere hypothetical, and with Donald Trump being who he is, he is practically guaranteed to retaliate "ten times harder" (basically another way of saying he'll grossly overreact to this threat to his manhood).
