Re: “The line is open

Prior to the adoption of the United States Constitution, an Englishman, Josiah Tucker, Dean of Gloucester, said:
"As to the future grandeur of America, and its being a rising empire under one hand, whether republican or monarchical, it is one of the idlest and most visionary notions that was ever conceived even by writers of romance . . . They never can be united into one compact empire under any species of government whatever; a disunited people till the end of time, suspicious and distrustful of each other, they will be divided and subdivided into little commonwealths or principalities, according to natural boundaries."

Mr. Tucker seems to hit have the mark on some of his predictions and missed it miserably in others. We are certainly suspicious and distrustful of each other.
