Partisanship particularly increased after the 1994 elections and then the appearance of the first unified Republican government since the 1950s.
Thomas E. Mann
All the different nations in the world, despite their differences of appearance and religion and language and way of life, still have one thing in common, and that is what's inside of all of us. If we X-rayed the insides of different human beings, we wouldn't be able to tell from those X-rays what the person's language or background or race is.
