The Revolution and the Civil War can be viewed as Slavery War I and Slavery War II. In both rebellions, secession was motivated by the fear of abolition in the near future.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would let Obamacare "fail" in the aftermath of his party's botched efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

This is how Trump has always dealt with his business failures. Declare bankruptcy. Walk away from responsibility and accountability. Leave people in the lurch.
