On the national disease.

When you just have a slight headache, you don’t imagine that it is the first indication of a much worse ailment. But as with my very sick friend, the symptoms have gotten bad enough that we can no longer ignore them. And now we have the terrible diagnosis: our nation has a late-stage political cancer rotting our republic from the inside out.

[Obama's actions] are the symptom, not the disease.

. . . [This "belief in executive authority without limits"], like cancer, is an assault on the internal political structures on which our nation’s health rests.

  3. For the longest time it was possible for citizens to assume basic good faith on the part of their governments. The progressives/communists, however, have been beavering away for 80 some years, necessarily concealing their statist agenda. Now they must resort to lies upon lies to conceal their true nature and objectives.

    The sickness and dishonesty of the left has finally become visible and the lack of good faith is palpable.
