Freebase

  1. Melting

    Melting, or fusion, is a physical process that results in the phase transition of a substance from a solid to a liquid. The internal energy of a substance is increased, typically by the application of heat or pressure, resulting in a rise of its temperature to the melting point, at which the ordering of ionic or molecular entities in the solid breaks down to a less ordered state and the solid liquefies. An object that has melted completely is molten. Substances in the molten state generally have reduced viscosity with elevated temperature; an exception to this maxim is the element sulfur, whose viscosity increases to a point due to polymerization and then decreases with higher temperatures in its molten state. Some organic compounds melt through mesophases, states of partial order between solid and liquid.

    America is not a melting pot. We do not all share the same values, beliefs, religion or even language. What unites us is the law. The law we all freely and voluntarily consent to. The law that says rape, robbery and murder are evil and should be prohibited in a civilized society. We ask law enforcement to represent us in prohibiting these evil acts. They stand on the blue line which separates law and order on one side and chaos and anarchy on the other. There can be no middle ground, so choose which side of the line you will stand on.
